Huntsman, manufacturer of specialty chemicals, will showcase its evolving range of composite solutions, void fillers and adhesives for automotive, aerospace and industrial applications at JEC World 2020 during March 3-5 in Paris. The goal is to highlight the innovative solutions, processes and services that can help bring the products of tomorrow to life.

With more than 60 years of experience developing composite resin technologies, Huntsman scientists collaborate with automotive experts to enable increased performance and accelerated development times. At the event, Huntsman will showcase pressure vessels based on Araldite composite solutions with high thermo-mechanical performance, alongside leaf springs using its Araldite epoxy resin system and Vitrox RTM polyurethane resin system.

Huntsman will also feature the versatile Rimline HC+ polyurethane resin system, enabling ultra-lightweight automotive interior components from fibreglass reinforced material, and the new Rimline FC rigid foam technology for composite cores. For e-mobility, Huntsman will display several applications of potting and encapsulating resins, which provide improved thermal capabilities.

For the wind energy, marine and outdoor assembly industries, Huntsman will show applications of its latest acrylic adhesives. These will feature a wind-blade repair application using Araldite 2050 epoxy resin, a product which can be applied in extreme low temperatures, enabling a downtime reduction of up to 50 per cent, and a mock-up sandwich panel structure for boat-building utilising the non-sagging, high gap-filling Araldite 2023 epoxy resin.

Huntsman’s new Epibond epoxy adhesive will also be featured. These solutions were developed to meet changing engineering, regulatory and economic requirements within the aerospace industry. Epibond 215 A/B structural adhesive can replace up to five competitive adhesives. For vertical and overhead applications, Epibond 200 A/B epoxy adhesive, also on display, delivers leading thermo-mechanical performance.

Additionally, economy-class airline seats will be on show, illustrating Araldite FST 40002/40006 composite, a ready-to-use solution for cost-effective manufacturing via direct processes of aerospace interior composite parts.

Huntsman will unveil a new electrically conductive adhesive modified with Miralon carbon nanotube materials and demonstrate its CNT-based Miralon sheets that can be embedded in composite structures, such as heat-generators, and require very low voltage.
