Ashland Specialty Chemical Company : 06 October, 2004  (New Product)
Ashland Composite Polymers, a business group within Ashland Specialty Chemical, has developed a resin for composites that virtually eliminates paint popping in OEM paint ovens.
Ashland Composite Polymers, a business group within Ashland Specialty Chemical, has developed a resin for composites that virtually eliminates paint popping in OEM paint ovens.

Arotran HMR resin also can be used in low-density formulations that can reduce weight by up to 20%. The resin was developed by the company to create a low-density capable, high modulus resilient resin that maintains structural integrity and durability and meets the existing specifications of car and truck manufacturers.

'Parts moulded with sheet moulding compound containing Arotran HMR resin resist paint popping in OEM paint ovens. The parts also are more resistant to cracking and crazing,' said Scott Hoertz, Global Marketing Director, Ashland Composite Polymers. 'These desirable features make this resin perfect for automobile and truck composite applications.'

To illustrate the benefits of its Arotran HMR resin, Ashland will have a demonstration part on display at its booth (718) at the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) trade show, which is being held on 6-8 October 2004 in Tampa, Florida, USA.
