At a press conference at JEC Europe 2013, DSM Composite Resins AG (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) unveiled its new range of Daron resins for infusion and RTM processes. Although the chemical backbone wasn’t discussed, the company claims the new resins have low inherent viscosity and are available with multiple sizing types for glass and carbon fibers. Fast cure (less than two minutes) is possible at room temperature for structural part production scenarios, including automotive parts (Daron RTM resins) and wind turbine blades (Daron 90/B18 and Daron 135/B5). A third structural infusion resin, Beyone 1, was also introduced. This styrene-free, cobalt-free formulation contains 40 percent renewable, bio-based content. Beyone resins are targeted to building, infrastructure, marine and wind industries.
