BASF: Thermoset Composites Website

September 27, 2010

BASF has launched a new website for its Acrodur® acrylic resin, a zero-emission acrylic thermoset resin for fibers and particles. The site provides information for manufacturers in the automotive industry that want to make high-performance composites for demanding applications.

The Acrodur acrylic resin can be used to produce high-performance nonwovens, compression-molded high-fiber composites, durable cork flooring and other construction products. The resin matrix is an acrylic polymer that is initially thermoplastic, allowing for production of prepreg/semi-finished rollstock or blanks. It then crosslinks at temperatures above 120°C to produce a durable thermoset.
