Your production processes need to combine superior efficiency with exceptional end-product performance. Huntsman’s laboratories can duplicate your processes, and offer on-site support, to help you find the best parameters (vacuum, temperature, pressure) for the most appropriate resin systems. With our processing help, you’ll need fewer trials to optimize quality and performance for each part.

Optimize the Cost and Efficiency of your Processes

Huntsman’s team of experts has broad and deep experience with most processes used to produce automotive components, and can provide advice on equipment choices (machines, molds, ancillaries) and on selecting the most suitable resin systems from our extensive portfolio. Support can also be provided on-site to assist with the launch of production for new products, or to address problems.

Reduce Time to Market

Reduce Time to Market

Testing on real production equipment, combined with our simulation services, lets you establish the most efficient processing parameters and the best performance with fewer trials. This not only reduces costs, but shortens the time required to bring new products to market.

Reduce Downtime

Reduce Downtime

It may be desirable to fine-tune processes after volume production has begun. Or, despite the most comprehensive planning, problems may appear. Huntsman’s application engineers are available to quickly provide on-site support, and can offer practical recommendations on how to optimize your manufacturing process or fix issues with a minimum of downtime.
