Speeding up pultrusion

Alice Blanco

Specifically designed for pultrusion, RTM, and SMC/BMC compounding applications, MoldX A3 flame retardant features a unique modified particle shape for reduced pulling forces, higher loadings, and faster line speeds in pultrusion, says the manufacturer, Huber Engineered Materials. Described as a product of the company’s controlled function technology process, which couples customer need with specialty engineering practices, MoldX A3’s morphology is said to allow for good viscosity control and wet-out at high loadings in all thermoset compounds.
