HIGH PERFORMANCE RESIN TECHNOLOGY FOR STRUCTURAL AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS

In 1978 ICI Americas introduced a family of high performance resins and a unique urethane thickening process for the production of structural grade SMC. A review of the benefits and advantages of this technology in relation to structural automotive applications is given. The suitability and desirability of utilizing these materials as light-weight replacement materials for structural automotive uses is explored. Actual field experience is used to summarize the usefulness of these materials in structural automotive applications.
