Composite Materials for Aerospace Structures

Our technologically advanced, consistently high-performing thermoset solutions challenge the industry status quo.

  • Supply is secured through backward integration into a complete range of multifunctional building blocks such as epoxidized glycidylamines and novolac resins.
  • Formulated systems make various end-use applications easier.
  • Our next generation infusion resins offer room temperature, out of autoclave (OOA) cure.

We have the products you need for closed molding. Our responsive service teams can supply the technical expertise to help you make the most of them.
