Composite matrix Loctite MAX 2
Curing Time Reduced to a Minute
With Loctite MAX 2, Henkel KgaA, Düsseldorf, Germany, has developed a polyurethane-based composite matrix resin that cures much faster than the epoxy resins normally used for resin transfer molding (RTM). This reduction in curing time is another breakthrough in the development of composite matrix resins for the production of lightweight components in the automotive industry. In addition, due to its low viscosity, Loctite MAX 2 penetrates and impregnates the fiber material much more easily and gently so that very short injection times can be achieved.
Cooperation with KraussMaffei Technology GmbH, Munich, Germany, on the high-pressure RTM process aims in future to achieve a further reduction in cycle time for the widest possible range of components.
