Frimo and Huntsman to cooperate for automotive PU composites

Both companies aim to exploit synergies and develop cost effective solutions for high volume composite manufacturing. Frimo offers tooling and equipment for PU processing and has experience in Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) processing technology. Huntsman is a leading developer and manufacturer of PU systems. Both companies have made investments into new technology, and have set up composite development centres at their respective sites in Germany and Belgium. Huntsman has purchased a Frimo pilot production unit for its technical centre in Everberg. This equipment, specifically designed for PU systems, allows Huntsman to expand its tailor-made testing and validation capabilities for a new range of matrix resins for automotive fibre composites, under the tradename Vitrox.
