At booths P14 and P15, Huntsman’s Advanced Materials and Polyurethanes divisions will exhibit epoxy and polyurethane resins for structural composite applications, epoxy structural adhesives for assembly and polyurethane systems for seating and acoustical applications.

“Our low viscosity, fast cure VITROX® and RIMLINE® resins, paired with Huntsman know-how on molding processes ranging from resin transfer molding to pultrusion, will enable high productivity of structural vehicle elements with high strength and toughness for crash critical applications,” said David Bareis, Market Development Manager, Polyurethane Composites, Huntsman Polyurethanes.

Huntsman products also help meet the demand for faster processing and reduced production cycles.

“Our new ARALDITE® liquid compression molding system offers a 30-second snap cure and exhibits excellent demolding stiffness, enabling demold times as fast as thermoplastics,” said Adam Harms, Marketing Manager, Automotive, Huntsman Advanced Materials.

A polyurethanes expert will also share novel applications for Huntsman’s VITROX technology in the following technical session:
