RIMLINE® FC polyurethane system is a moldable and tunable foam core for lightweight, durable composite electric vehicle applications.
Developed for under floor structures, door frames, inserts for (semi-) structural parts, acoustically enhanced components, and battery enclosures, RIMLINE® FC system delivers very good process performance with low resin penetration and excellent adhesion.
RIMLINE® FC polyurethane system is a two-component rigid foam system that has been specifically developed for use as core material in the manufacture of sandwich panels.
Molded in final shape, RIMLINE® FC system can be used jointly with glass or carbon reinforcements to build a preform. Following the impregnation with composite resins, such as VITROX® composite resins, either by Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) or Wet Compression Molding (WCM) processes, the final semi-structural sandwich composites can be constructed.
RIMLINE® FC polyurethane system is fully formulated and includes the mix of a polyol blend and catalyst package, used in combination with RIMLINE® FC diisocyanate.
Key features include:
RIMLINE® FC polyurethane system can be tailored to meet versatile manufacturing processes and complex design requirements.
Key benefits include:
In combination with our RIMLINE® WCM system, our RIMLINE® FC polyurethane system can be used to create under body battery protection components – helping to drive forward the adoption of electric vehicles.
