Pultrusion is one of the most technically challenging composite processes, where ATH design plays a key role in performance. With the trend toward halogen-free and lower smoke, the formulator is faced with the significant challenge of incorporating higher loading levels of ATH into their recipes. This trend is further developed in Europe, but is also beginning take effect in the US.
OPTILOAD & ALUPREM LV – low viscosity ATH products for pultrusion are engineered to meet critical customer performance requirements:
* Low pull force / higher line speeds
* Low filtration through high fiberglass content (>50%)
* Excellent fiberglass wet-out properties
* Loading levels over 200 phr possible for low smoke requirements
