Loopwheels - re-inventing the wheel
17 April, 2015
Loopwheels is a shock-absorbing wheel with an integral suspension system. It was created with the help of an Araldite composite bonder and has been nominated for the prestigious ′Designs of the Year 2015’ sponsored by the Design Museum in the UK.
Low flammability structural composites and adhesives for aerospace interiors
24 October, 2014
The use of composite materials on aircraft interiors is emerging from the shadow of composite airframe applications. With fuel prices currently accounting for over a third of operating costs, it is now widely recognised that interior composites can deliver significant cost savings in this area. Composites currently account for just 20 to 25% of the total interior weight of an aircraft and there is huge potential for this to increase to as much as 30-40% within the next ten years.
Epoxy adhesive demonstrates advantages of ductility on composite single lap joints
10 August, 2014
An Araldite epoxy adhesive system from Huntsman Advanced Materials has been used in an experiment conducted by a research group, under the direction of Dr Trevor Young of the Irish Centre for Composites Research at the University of Limerick, in which the bondline stress concentrations and the influence of adhesive ductility on composite single lap joints were investigated.
Adhesives spread innovation across Europe’s railways
29 May, 2014
Laurent Pourcheron, Marketing Manager for Adhesives at Huntsman Advanced Materials, reviews the adhesive technologies which are enabling the production of sustainable developments, helping manufacturers in the sector achieve competitive edge and secure long-term growth.
Valuable advice for designing with adhesive bonding
15 April, 2014
Huntsman Advanced Materials is offering free advice to designers and design engineers looking to achieve the best performance from adhesive bonding, focused on the importance of designing components for bonding as a recommended alternative to designing with mechanical fastening.
Ultra-thin prepreg system exploited in luxury watch project
23 March, 2014
Huntsman Advanced Materials has been supporting Swiss pre-impregnated materials specialist North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) to produce ultra-thin prepreg components on a Richard Mille luxury watch case, an unusual application for this materials class.
Reflecting titanium dioxide pigment could transform greenhouse film performance
14 October, 2013
New research indicates that Huntsman's Altiris infra-red reflecting pigment can improve the performance of polyethylene (PE) greenhouse film to provide improved growing conditions.
Infrared reflecting pigment increases solar reflectance in coloured polymers
27 August, 2013
Huntsman’s Altiris infrared reflecting pigment is a titanium dioxide based pigment that preferentially reflects infrared radiation (heat) from the sun. When mixed with coloured pigments the result is higher solar reflectance in an unprecedented range of colourful polymers including dark and vibrant shades.
Bio-sourced composites used in prototype eco-vehicle
28 May, 2013
Huntsman Advanced Materials has developed bio-sourced composite materials which have been used in the latest version of the BioMobile; a prototype vehicle designed to achieve minimal reliance on the use of fossil fuel resources in its design and construction, while offering very low energy consumption in use.
