AIMPLAS Present New Processing Techniques at JEC Europe 2015

03 March 2015

AIMPLAS will present more efficient and sustainable new processing techniques for the composites industry, as well as its biocomposites and the incorporation of nanotechnology in order to improve the properties of the materials at JEC 2015.

Microwave curing technology will be showcased; a process that AIMPLAS says allows a reduction of the manufacture of production time by up to 80%. AIMPLAS explains that this is also an environmentally sustainable and safer process because it reduces the emissions of styrene by half, and the resulting pieces are of higher-quality, with a more controllable and reproducible curing.

AIMPLAS has developed biocomposites described as having higher environmental respect, lower dependence on petroleum and weight reduction. It says some parts have been already developed with these materials, such as interior vehicle panels, suspended ceilings, inner walls for the transport and construction sector.

AIMPLAS will be exhibiting in Hall 7.3, Stand K61.
