Composites

Composites are thermoset resins filled with fibers or other fillers.  Composite materials have been in use for a long time.  One big early success of composites, which was in the aircraft industry, was based on the value proposition of reducing the weight of metal while retaining the strength.

Today the composites industry enjoys tremendous growth rates in markets such as aeronautics, transportation, energy, construction, civil engineering, oil and gas, and medical markets.  Value propositions include the original lightweighting, but today also includes chemical resistance, and improved properties.

Silsurf C208

[TOP]

 

This silicone polyether copolymer is very soluble in water and most solvents. Gives hair conditioning, foam stabilization and formulation stabilization in PC formula. In inks and coatings moderate slip and mar resistance, good flow and leveling and a low potential for defects. It can be used in nearly any application where surface tension reduction, surface modification or wetting are desired.
