For the resin transfer molding process, Henkel has developed a new composite matrix resin based on polyurethane that enables improved economics and throughput in processing. Compared to standard epoxy matrix resins, the new Loctite MAX2 cures signifi cantly faster.

During injection, it also enables more effi cient impregnation without stressing the fi bres, due to the lower viscosity of the resin. The composite properties of Loctite MAX2 have been developed to provide more fl exibility as well as much higher impact resistance than traditional epoxy resins.
