DOW POLYURETHANES: Composite Material
To help create the strongest and lightest composite infrastructure materials, this company has introduced VORAFORCE™ TP 1200 series to the North America market. The novel polyurethanes solution reportedly enables fast, energy-efficient pultrusion composite fabrication with low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
The product reportedly supports the fabrication of strong composites for a number of applications, including building profiles such as pilings and panels, window manufacturing, electrical infrastructure such as utility poles, and civil engineering. VORAFORCE can also be used to create heavy-duty polyurethane pallets for logistics and transportation applications and ladder rails for consumer use.
“This technology is another example of how advancements in material science and innovation are continually improving manufacturing around the world,” said Avery Watkins, new business development manager. “As an alternative to traditional materials like aluminum, polyester or epoxy, we’ve created a more cost-effective solution to help fabricators deliver superior strength and durability to structural profiles.”
