The ESE Carbon Company and DSM have worked together to develop a car wheel based on DSM’s Daron 200 RTM Resin in combination with ESE Industries’ proprietary manufacturing process.

According to DSM these wheels are the lightest production carbon fibre wheels currently available in the market. They are manufactured in high volume using the NGAP manufacturing processes. ESE Carbon’s E1 wheels are produced using ESE Industries’ Next Generation Autoclave Process (NGAP), which combines high speed autoclave cure with the low viscosity of DSM’s Daron 200 RTM resin to achieve very low demoulding times. The NGAP technology leverages the advantages of high quality autoclave manufacturing with a mass production approach to deliver high quality carbon fibre composites. DSM’s Daron 200 RTM resin has been chosen as the matrix material by ESE Carbon because of its excellent processing characteristics; low viscosity, easy carbon fibre impregnation, high production speed and high mechanical properties at the elevated temperatures typical for this application.

DSM explains that Daron 200 RTM resins can be easily adjusted for complex-shaped part design and a specific process set up, and once in place the system can run consistently yielding parts with predictable mechanical properties.

“The collaboration between DSM and ESE Industries has resulted in a great product breakthrough; we’re extremely pleased with DSM and the performance of their Daro 200 resin system,” comments Eric Escribano, President & CEO of ESE Industries. “The resulting ultra-lightweight carbon wheels can be custom-made and designed according to specific OEM preferences, as well as tailored for a full range of applications across multiple industries,” he continues.

“DSM likes to work closely with customers in bringing new material systems to life. This is a nice example of how joint innovation can simultaneously bring superior performance and improved sustainability,” adds Peter Hilzendegen, Market Segment Leader SMC/ BMC for DSM Composite Resins.
