Huntsman Champion Advanced Processing and Manufacturing Techniques at JEC Europe

At JEC Europe Huntsman will focus on the growing importance of high performance chemistries as enablers for new, cost-competitive manufacturing techniques and the further penetration of composites across a number of industry sectors.

Huntsman says they will highlight resin systems particularly suitable for out-of-autoclave processes such as high pressure resin transfer moulding (HP-RTM) or compression moulding. They explain that while aerospace-derived prepreg materials for autoclave cure have traditionally been used within the racing and high-value automotive sectors, out-of-autoclave processes are increasingly providing unparalleled efficiencies in terms of cost, production rates, quality and performance.

According to Huntsman, they offer a comprehensive range of Germanischer Lloyd (GL) approved Araldite epoxy resin systems which meet stringent processing and performance requirements for wind blades manufacturing.  They say their resin systems have been adapted for a range of processes, including wet lay-up, infusion and prepreg systems. 

Huntsman will also have on display the high strength composite bonder Araldite AW 4858 / Hardener 4858 and the highly temperature resistant Araldite AW 4859 / Hardener HW 4859.  These epoxy based adhesives are available in cartridges and display lap shear strengths exceeding 35Mpa on composite parts.

Huntsman will be demonstration these technologies at booth G65 at JEC Europe next week.
