Innovative ARALDITE® resin system offers a new dimension to composite rail vehicle designs

8th June 2016

 

ARALDITE® FST 40004 / 40005 takes user-friendly processing technologies into a new dimension enabling fast RTM curing capabilities at around 5 minutes / 150˚C and a pultrusion speed of circa 12 metres an hour.

This system also exhibits a high modulus which enables ease of installation through the production of rigid parts that can also withstand the physical stresses and strains experienced in a vehicle application. 

Commenting on the launch of this unique solution, Laurent Pourcheron, marketing manager for Huntsman Advanced Materials, said: “With ARALDITE® FST 40004 / 40005, you can build shape while building enhanced functionality into the part itself. Ensuring form meets function is an essential part of our material development strategy.

Interior components such as luggage shelves, tables ceiling panels and even window trims can not only deliver the aesthetic design required but also serve as complete structures, providing a more cost effective solution without the need or added expense of any additional elements.”
