Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. (Columbus, Ohio) displayed at JEC Europe 2013 new products for the automotive composites market, including EPIKOTE Binder System 620, a one-component, crosslinkable powder binder that can be applied to carbon or glass fibers and fabrics in a hot-melt coating process. At a softening temperature that ranges from 80°C to 90°C (175°F to 194°F), the binder exhibits excellent workability and drapability, allowing easy preforming. During cure, the binder crosslinks to ensure good stiffness for subsequent molding in automotive mass production lines. Also on display were previously announced products for fast mass production: EPIKURE 05500 fast-cure epoxy and EPIKOTE binder 04695-1/EPIKURE 05490A curing agent for Class A composite parts that are made with gap impregnation RTM.
