Formulation Additives for Thermoset Composites
Formulation additives impart the optimization of thermoset composites properties by enhancing adhesion, rheology and wetting abilities. BTC’s formulation additives for the thermoset composites comprise of air release agents, wetting and dispersing agents, flow and levelling agents and slip agents.
Performance Additives for Thermoset Composites
Performance additives assist organic substrates such as composites which are exposed to a variety of environmental and artificial factors like radiation, humidity, temperature change, microbiological attack, air pollution and more.
Chemical Intermediates for the Composites Industry
Styrene reduction is an important topic in the composites industry; vinyl monomers can replace a part of it by up to 20 %. Formulators need to balance between the different vinyl monomers of the range by mixing them to obtain the properties expected. Vinyl monomers are used in unsaturated polyester glass fiber reinforced, besides others.
Colourants for Composites
From solar heat management to eco-friendly lead replacement technologies, our organic and inorganic pigments and dyes help you meet your functional and environmental aims without compromising technical performance.
Resins for Thermoset Composites
Thermoset composites consist of a matrix, the thermoset resin and reinforcements. Thermosets are reactive systems like unsaturated polyester, epoxy, polyurethane, acrylics and UV systems. For all types of thermoset composites BTC provides the appropriate solution.
