Epoxy manufacturer Olin Corp. (Clayton, MO, US) is unveiling several new technologies for composite applications, which will be shown in finished products on display in Olin’s booth (S13). Olin’s latest products are available as well, including LITESTONE systems for composites and Wind Energy Systems from AIRSTONE. Finished products in the booth include:

  • Composite pressure vessel: Epoxy systems designed to help meet the increasing demands for lightweight composite vessels used as alternative energy storage systems for virtual pipeline and transportation applications
  • Frac plug: Glass fiber-reinforced composite frac plugs for demanding fracking applications
  • Composite rigid pipe: High-temperature and corrosion-resistant industrial pipes
  • Composite leaf spring: Lightweight, fatigue-resistant composites for automotive suspension
  • Composite rebar: Corrosion-resistant, lightweight, long service life fiber-reinforced composite rebar for demanding infrastructure applications

At the conference, Dr. Prashanth Badrinarayanan and Dr. Yi Ling Liang, both technical managers at Olin, are presenting “Novel Toughened Epoxy Systems for Damage Tolerant Composite Pressure Vessels,” Oct. 18, 3:30 p.m., D221.
