Huntsman Advanced Materials (The Woodlands, Texas) introduced at JEC Europe 2013 the latest version of its Araldite epoxy resin matrix, formulated specifically for use in KraussMaffei’s (Munich, Germany) high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) process. Huntsman says the resin enables five-minute production cycles and offers a 30 percent time savings, compared to first-generation HP-RTM resins. Also new: Huntsman’s fast-curing methacrylate-based adhesives, Araldite 2047-1 and Araldite 2048, which were designed, respectively, for composite bonding with limited surface preparation and the creation of flexible joints with a 90 percent elongation at break.
