Henkel opened Composite Test Center in Asia

New Composite Test Center was opened to meet demand of automotive OEMs which express a lively interest in applying composite materials in their products.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) require cost-effective processes suitable for production of more than 10,000 parts per year. In practical terms, this means they often want custom-formulated, fast-curing resins for use in short production cycles.

In the new Asia located Composite Test Center, Henkel’s customers can work with experts to develop and test composite parts, and also to optimize series production process conditions. They carry out trials on Henkel’s own High Pressure Resin Transfer Molding (HP-RTM) equipment, which models close to real conditions.

Henkel’s diverse composites portfolio includes composite matrix resins and adhesives. The Loctite MAX series of matrix resins is suitable for use with glass and carbon fiber preforms designed for the RTM process. Henkel’s range also includes binders and release agents for fiber-reinforced components.
