Huntsman Advanced Materials (Basel, Switzerland and The Woodlands, Texas) focused on new products for fast and cost-competitive processing. The company featured an Araldite resin system for high-pressure resin transfer molding (RTM) and compression molding. Targeted to the auto industry, the resin enables production cycle times as short as three minutes for RTM and less than one minute for compression molding. The company’s resin is used to produce the RTM’d carbon composite passenger chassis cell for the Lamborghini Aventador supercar. Also on offer was Araldite AW 4858 adhesive and companion hardener, along with a high-temperature version AW 4859 and hardener, that when used to join composite parts reportedly offer lap shear strengths that exceed 35 MPa.
