API has found that with the use of phosphorous containing compounds, used in the textile industry, substantial reduction in FST properties can be realized for VaRTM resins systems without loss in mechanical and physical properties. With using this new technology, API was able to develop an epoxy based resin system that exceeds the present state of art epoxy VaRTM resin formulations. Collectively, as stated in the objective of this SBIR, API was able to develop a VaRTM process able resin that had equal cone calorimeter results as Derakane 510-A, but had at least a 65 lower smoke value.
