Huntsman offers a range of resin systems optimized for the production of specific components by HP-RTM.
For body-in-white parts, choose ARALDITE® LY 3585 resin / ARADUR® 3475 hardener, a fast-cure solution that offers enhanced processing, reduced curing cycle and improved toughness. It is a high-clarity system, suitable for production of cosmetic parts.
For leaf springs, we recommend ARALDITE® LY 3585 resin / ARADUR® 3831 hardener, a first-generation system that’s proven to withstand real-world fatigue loading under severe hot/wet conditions; or ARALDITE® LY 3585 resin / ARADUR® 3834 hardener, a second-generation solution for parts that must endure the harshest hot/wet conditions, such as those located near engines.
For wheels, choose ARALDITE® LY 8615 resin / ARADUR® 8615 hardener, a first-generation system that’s OEM-qualified, and has proven performance and reliability from several years of on-road service; or ARALDITE® LY 1560 resin / ARADUR® 917-1 hardener, a second-generation system with increased strength and toughness, plus high aesthetic properties. Adjustable accelerator technology allows cure time to be tailored to a given wheel design.
For pressure vessels, select ARALDITE® LY 3508 resin / ARADUR® 3478 hardener, a highly toughened system designed to withstand the extreme pressure-cycling requirements of hydrogen vessels.
ARALDITE® resin solutions for battery housings are based on a unique halogen-free thermosetting chemistry that meets the fire resistance requirements of electrified vehicles. High thermomechanical properties ensure battery cells are fully protected, and provide design freedom, light weight and corrosion resistance. ARALDITE® FST 40004 resin / ARALDITE® FST 40005 resin is a first-generation system that combines fire resistance and easy processing. ARALDITE® FST 40004 resin / ARALDITE® FST 40007 resin is a second-generation solution that features improved fire resistance and structural properties, without sacrificing the process and productivity attributes of the first-generation product.
