22 Feb 2013

JEC Europe 2013 - The Dow Chemical Company will present its most recent developments of composite systems.

Building on Dow’s leadership in material science, and combining polyurethane and epoxy chemistry, these solutions for stronger, lightweight and more durable composites enable efficient fabrication in several industrial sectors, such as construction, infrastructure, wind energy, and automotive.

Visitors can look forward to seeing new composite developments for established fabrication processes such as:

  • Pultrusion: VORAFORCE™ TP 1200 polyurethane system.
  • Long fibre injection: new 800 mm diameter, D 400 manhole cover made with VORAFORCE™ KN.
  • Vacuum infusion: enhanced AIRSTONE™ epoxy infusion system and an innovative adhesive technology addition for wind blade composites.
  • Rotational moulding: ROTAKOTE™ P – a new elastomer, designed particularly for the paper industry and steel manufacturing.
  • Resin transfer moulding: next-generation, fast-cure, VORAFORCE™ 5000 and 7000 series resin formulations, and BETAMATE™/BETAFORCE™  adhesives for automotive composites.
  • Carbon fibre: the joint venture between Dow and Aksa offers significant advantages to develop, manufacture and globally market carbon fibre and derivatives to support the rapidly expanding carbon-fibre-based composites industry.
