Materia Inc. (Pasadena, CA, US), a supplier of high-performance catalysts and advanced polymers, is showcasing its Proxima high-performance resin product lines including ballistic-resistant test panels, large single-pour castings, high-temperature oil and gas downhole tools and sections of composite pressure vessels. Materia will soon launch an advanced composites resin, Proxima ACR 4350, featuring a Tg > 350° F for elevated service temperature parts that also require durability and toughness. Materia says the new resin addresses an industry need for ultratough, high-temperature resins that offer low enough viscosity for vacuum infusion resin transfer molding (VARTM). Booth F44.

Materia’s Dr. Brian Edgecombe is presenting Proxima ACR 4350 in “Leveraging High Toughness, Low Viscosity Resin in Composite Pressure Vessels,” Thursday, Sept.14, 3:00-3:25 pm in W207B.
