Now, APC plus is available for molding free-flowing thermosets
such as granular phenolic, melamine, urea, unsaturated polyester and epoxy molding compounds, as well as polyester BMC/SMC and liquid or solid silicones.
Chad Nunnery, president and owner of Composite Access Products (CAP), will discuss manhole covers as a new application for composite thermoset
material in North America.
She most recently served as business director, Thermosets
Campbell held the position of sales manager of the Thermoset
Plastics business unit.
It also produces CIC, a thermoset
compound made by a continuous impregnation process.
molding compounds, with resins such as polyester, vinyl ester, phenolic, or epoxy at their core, are crosslinked during the molding process.
An injected thermoplastic outer panel is bonded to a rigid thermoset
inner in this design that can accommodate complex shapes.
* While thermoset
resins require an irreversible chemical reaction, thermoplastic TowFlex produces no toxic chemicals and can be fabricated at machine speeds, recycling any scrap.
The better than average growth registered by polyurethanes, epoxies and silicones offset the slowdown in thermoset
resin growth in the early 1990s.
They exhibit characteristics of both thermoplastics and thermoset
Global molding compounds market by thermoset
resin type to grow from USD 8.04 billion in 2015 to USD 10.96 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.40% between 2015 and 2020, as the thermoset
molding compounds are being increasingly used in electrical and automotive applications.
Chromaflo Technologies, one of the leading independent global suppliers of colorant systems, chemical and pigment dispersions, is very pleased to announce two new positions to support the Thermoset
Composites market at its Ashtabula, Ohio facility.
