Avient Corp. (Avon Lake, Ohio, U.S.) announced on Sept. 10 that it will be exhibiting its enhanced adhesion formulations for its Glasforms thermoset pultruded composites and feature its advanced, wide-ranging thermoplastic and thermoset composite materials portfolio at the upcoming Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX).
The novel Glasforms resin formulations is said to provide improved adhesive properties for thermoset pultrusions, enabling exceptional bonding performance for end products and thus, eliminating the need for time-consuming and labor-intensive secondary surface preparation such as grinding or abrading. The Glasforms solution, Avient notes, can benefit energy, infrastructure, electrical and transportation markets.
Further, Avient promotes its advanced composites portfolio includes Polystrand continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics, Gordon Composites thermoset barstock and laminates, and Glasforms thermoset pultrusions.
An overview of this technology will be discussed in a technical presentation during the CAMX conference, one of Avient’s four on-demand conference sessions presented as part of the CAMX virtual experience.
