HOS-Technik GmbH (St. Stefan, Austria) is featuring its high-temperature resins based on bismaleimide (HOMIDES), polybenzimidazole (HOZOLE), maleimide monomers, reactive diluents and microbeads (HOSBeads). HOZOLE and HOMIDE are used mainly for applications where high-temperature resistance is an important criterion. The monomer HOMIDES can be used as cross-linking agents for rubber, in formulations for adhesives, as basic elements for the production of bismaleimide resins and for the preparation of formulations for resin transfer molding (RTM) and hot-melt processing. In combination with maleimide monomers, the reactive diluents can be used for the manufacture of composites and laminates. The high-temperature resins HOMIDE 250, 400, 405 and 802 are thermosetting reactive prepolymers. The main fields of application include the production of laminates, composites and molded parts. Long-term temperature resistance after cure is 260-280°C (500-536°F). HOZOLE is a powdery high-performance polymer manufactured using a polybenzimidazole base. Products made from HOZOLE are non-flammable and show excellent high-temperature stability up to 540°C/1004°F). HOZOLE is used to make fibres, component parts and films. HOSBeads are spherical beads made of highly crosslinked methyl methacrylate that can be used in solvent-based and waterborne paints and coatings. To improve the structure, opacity and matting of products, HOSBeads can be blended with other fillers or matting agents.
