Elium, a composite resin for pultrusion

Elium® is the first liquid thermoplastic resin designed for manufacturing composite parts with mechanical properties similar to thermosetting.

The major advantage of Elium® is it acts like a thermoplastic, which means it is uniquely designed for thermoforming, recycling and welding. Elium is the ideal thermoplastic resin to manufacture materials and parts through a pultrusion process. This video shows it.

Elium® resins properties

  • 30 to 50% lighter than the same parts made from steel with the same resistance
  • Perfect for complex design forms
  • Seamlessly blends with glass or carbon fibers
  • Compatible with conventionial thermosetting resin transformation technologies (Resin Transfer Moulding, Infusion, Flex-molding)
  • Exceptional post-thermoforming (welding and gluing)
  • Styrene free compared to unsatured polyesters
  • Parts easily thermoformed and recycled with comparable mechanical performance for epoxy parts
  • Cost less to manufacture compared to other thermoplastic technologies:
    • Conventional thermoset resin processes
    • Transformation at room temperature
    • No organo-sheets.
