• Low mass • Excellent strength-to-weight ratio • Corrosion resistance • Design flexibility
Arotran™ resins and resin systems have proven effective in the automotive and heavy-truck markets for both Class A and structural-part applications. An outcome of our collaborative approach to problem solving, these resins can be utilized in a wide range of processes such as sheet molding compound (SMC), high-pressure resin-transfer molding, open-mold laminating, bulk-molding compounding (BMC) and infusion.
In addition, Arotran™ resin technology provides excellent mechanical properties, toughness and surface appearance. Arotran™ resins can also provide a molded-in black color with excellent UV stability that eliminates the need for paint.
Arotran™ Class A SMC and structural resins utilize nano-composite materials to provide original equipment manufacturers and molders with lower-mass SMCs, which results in lighter parts. Please note, parts made from Arotran™ Class A resins offer superior surface finish, reduction in paint pops, excellent bond and paint adhesion properties. While parts made from Arotran™ structural resins provide a lower-mass structure with excellent mechanical and heat-resistance properties.
