“While exceptional thermo-mechanical properties and excellent compatibility with carbon fiber characterise our new VORAFORCE epoxy-based solutions, excellent toughness and fast curing are among the key strengths for the polyurethane-based VORAFORCE Composite Systems,” reports Kenneth Chan, Commercial Director for the Pacific Area at the Alternative Energy and Composites business of Dow Formulated Systems.

“The absence of styrene emissions during fabrication and low VOC are among the common advantages for our entire VORAFORCE Composite Systems range,” he adds.

VORAFORCE Composite Systems are designed for use with many fabrication technologies, including filament winding, pultrusion, resin transfer moulding (RTM), long fibre injection, hand lay-up and spray up.

Dow Formulated Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, develops and formulates polyurethane and epoxy systems for use in various markets.
