Huntsman Advanced Materials will be showcasing their pioneering lightweight solutions for Automotive and Aerospace industries at JEC World 2018.
Building on its theme ‘Chemistry for Lightweighting’, Huntsman Advanced Materials will bring its automotive capabilities to life through a series of finished parts from leading global OEMs.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see the range of high-performance solutions for structural automotive applications from individual components such as a carbon hybrid composite wheel to a complete full-functional composite motorcycle frame, BMW HP4 Race.
The booth itself has parts manufactured using its state-of-the-art Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) process for the mass production of lightweight composite components. These can be seen on the booth as proofs of concept and include a Roding Automotive door shell and a new SUV Electric Vehicle engine hood that increases the driving range of electric cars.
For the Aerospace industry, the company will be focusing on lightweight interior aircraft components and demonstrating how its Araldite® chemistries have been used to create a commercially-available lightweight seat-back with inherent fire performance properties that can achieve a 20% weight saving.
In addition to composites and adhesives, visitors to the booth can learn more about the company’s range of syntactics for robust sandwich structures with reduced weight.
Huntsman Advanced Materials will also be co-sponsoring the Aerospace Planet, where they will be hosting a conference on Innovation and Trends in Aerospace. The conference will take place on Wednesday 7th March between 9.30am and 12.30pm.
