Arotran™ resins and resin systems have proven effective in the automotive and heavy-truck markets for both Class A and structural-part applications. An outcome of our collaborative approach to problem-solving, these resins can be utilized in a wide range of processes such as sheet moulding compound (SMC), high-pressure resin-transfer moulding, open-mould laminating, bulk-moulding compounding (BMC) and infusion.
The Arotran™ 300 resin system was developed to address the automotive industry’s need for lightweight, high-strength resin systems utilising carbon fibre (CF). Parts made with this resin technology will produce carbon fibre SMC structural composites with very high mechanical properties. The resin system is based on epoxy vinyl ester chemistry and nano-composite technology. Mass reduction, low tooling costs, noise reduction, and heat and corrosion resistance are all deliverables with the use of the Arotran™ 300 resin system in structural applications.
- Low mass
- Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
- Corrosion resistance
- Design flexibility
