New thermoset developments for mass production of automotive parts
The latest thermoset development for light-weight automotive composite applications in mass production are presented. A systematic approach is used to improve the mechanical properties of epoxy/carbon fiber SMC to achieve the highest performance in the industrial scale process. A new phenolic SMC is introduced that was molded into a battery box cover from a production electrical vehicle. The part has excellent fire retardant characteristics and passes the ECE R100 and GB/T 31467.3 tests. Furthermore, the PuriCoat platform for producing Class A surface quality, visible lightweight components within a very short cycle time is launched. The platform’s negligible emission levels address the growing regulatory demand for VOC-free solutions.
