Dow Automotive (Horgen, Switzerland) touted its new Dow VORAFORCE 5300 epoxy resin matrix system for high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) and its variants. Dow officials say the formulation offers low viscosity to enable resin transfer yet also cures quickly. Also new was Dow’s VORAFORCE TW 1100 series of polyurethane systems, developed for filament winding, particularly in the case of power and transmission poles. Dow also presented a new development in its AIRSTONE family, targeted to customers in the wind-energy industry. The new Dow AIRSTONE 87 system offers a series of high-elongation adhesives.
