EMS-GRILTECH (Domat/Ems, Switzerland) introduced at JEC Europe 2014 its Griltex CE, a combined binding agent and toughener for thermoset resins. Developed for use with epoxies, polyurethanes, phenolics or cynate esters, the additive modifier reportedly stabilizes fiber structures or tapes and prevents shifting during resin transfer molding processes. As a toughener, it is designed to offer an increase in residual fracture strength values of up to 65 percent in compression-after-impact (CAI) tests. Shear strength also shows an improvement of 33 percent.
