Molded End Cap Solution
ToughPleat is a line of two-component polyurethanes for molded end caps developed by Epic Resins. These VOC-free polyurethanes are designed to have excellent tear resistance and high strength for demanding molded filter end cap applications. Being strong, flexible materials, ToughPleat polyurethanes are well-suited for filters that will be subjected to constant pulsing, pressure drops and/or may take some effort to remove or install. The high tear resistance prevents the filter from being damaged during the installation or removal process.
With a convenient mix ratio by volume and low viscosity, the ToughPleat Series is easy to dispense and can be used with many types of metering equipment. The fast gel time ensures a quick turnover of filters, helping to reduce WIP time in many production configurations.
ToughPleat benefits for molded end cap applications:
- High tensile strength
- High elongation
- Excellent tear resistance
- Easy to dispense
- Reduced WIP time
ToughPleat property versions available, based on your application:
