Mektech Composites Inc. (Hillsdale, NJ, US) is featuring its line of phenolic resins, which it distributes for Hexion Inc. Cellobond phenolic resins, originally developed by BP Chemicals in the UK, can be processed at low temperature and used in hand layup, sprayup, vacuum infusion, resin transfer molding (RTM), filament winding, pultrusion and press molding to produce composites with excellent flame, smoke and toxicity properties, and high-temperature resistance. Cellobond phenolic composites are predominantly used in mass transit, architecture, corrosion, tunneling and Ducting and marine applications. Mektech also will feature Durite SC-1008 (meets MIL-R9299C, Grades A and B requirements), which is used to produce prepreg in aerospace and military applications.
