Huntsman Advanced Materials Wins Two Materialica Awards

25 October 2011

Huntsman has won two Gold Materialica Awards based on criteria including elements such as innovation, development and application potential, creativity, technical quality and measured data.

According to Huntsman, the first award won was in the Surface & Technology category, and was received for their new white solder mask for LED application; PROBIMER 77 white.  Huntsman say that supporting new EU regulatory restrictions for eliminating light bulbs, the solder mask is used in general lighting with specific applications in the automotive industry for front and rear vehicle lighting and in the aerospace sector for cabin lighting. 

They say that by providing good chemical resistance and offering reflectivity of more than 85%, this product is set to transform the printed circuit board market for LED applications.  

Huntsman has also won a second joint award with Lamiflex in the Product category for the ‘Ciclotte’; an exclusive exercise bike made with high-tech carbon and glass based prepregs from Lamiflex, using a high-performance resin system from Huntsman. 

According to Huntsman, the superior mechanical properties of the composite material, produced using an autoclave process, allowed Lamiflex to achieve objectives to produce an aesthetically pleasing product that is both compact, robust and at least 10kg lighter than similar exercise bikes.  

They say the complex shapes that give the Ciclotte its particular aesthetic appeal are made possible through the application of composites and the specific manufacturing process used
