        I think you should do some reading on high temp epoxies. What are you intending to use it for? Do you have the equipment to cure it and are you willing to pay the price for it?

            I used to use a company calle ciba-geigy. they were extensively involved in marine composites but i think they ceased trading a few years ago. I did a bit of digging and came up with a story that they changed to Vantico, i could not find that and then came up with this this http://www.answers.com/topic/epoxy-1

            Ciba were based down in southampton i think - on near the water anyway! I used to have all the catologues about 10 years ago when I raced cars and i remmember high temp resins as well as the fire retardent ones etc. I thinkt he highest temp ones are phenolic not epoxy. But you can get epoxy resisns that take higher temps than normal before losing strength.

            Here is the start of info from Huntsman: http://www.huntsman.com/index.cfm?PageID=4556

            As you cas see they hold the rights to the araldite brand (the proper structural adhesive which comes in big pots)

              I just used the shockingly bad product selector and quickly found this: http://ww1.huntsmanservice.com/AM/ui...ist.do?PCId=35

              It is a phenol epoxy (my memory was right about the phenolic resins) and is designed for use at elevated temps.

                  I used carbon-fiber tuned pipes on my race boats so the resin exists.

                    You could give GKN a ring in the isle of white. they will have a supplier. (they do all the airbus composites there)
