Dow Formulated Systems (Horgen, Switzerland), a business unit of The Dow Chemical Co. (Midland, Mich.), introduced at JEC Europe 2013 its VORAFORCE TP polyurethane system for pultrusion. This solution reportedly enables efficient fabrication of composites used in industrial and domestic applications, such as in window manufacturing, building profiles, electrical infrastructure and civil engineering. Dow is targeting the polyurethane as a replacement for polyester and vinyl ester and emphasizes that it offers a styrene-free resin solution. Also on the Dow stand were carbon fiber/epoxy architectural structures infused by Affan Innovative Structures LLC (Dubai, U.A.E.) using VORAFORCE TF epoxy systems. The panels were used in the Sidra Hospital in Qatar and the Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. VORAFORCE TF systems were developed specifically for infusion processes. The systems offer very low viscosity and low exothermicity, and they reportedly allow for optimal fiber wetting and efficient processing. The material enables free-form shapes and dynamic curvatures.
