Resin developments speed up the automotive production process
New generation toughened high-end Araldite NanoTech composite RTM composite material is based on a patented new nanotechnology concept which significantly improves fracture resistance without affecting vital physical properties such as flexural modulus, temperature resistance and viscosity to outperform standard resins.
The technology relies on the use of specific, dispersed organic nano-particles which exhibit outstanding toughening effects when incorporated in Araldite resins. The result is a tough, stiff material which is able to withstand shock without developing micro cracks making it ideal for high stress and impact exposed parts.
