Dow Polyurethanes (Midland, MI, US) will introduce the VORAFORCE TP 1200 series, a novel polyurethane solution that enables fast, energy-efficient pultrusion fabrication with low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Dow says its new solution supports the fabrication of composites for a number of applications, including building profiles such as pilings and panels, window profiles, utility poles, heavy-duty polyurethane pallets for logistics and transportation applications, as well as ladder rails for consumer use. The Dow pultrusion system also is said to provide low pull-through forces during processing, enabling greater productivity for fabricators. VOC emissions are also said to be lower.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.
