The ATSP team will be exhibiting our full line of ultra-high temperature resins (Aromatic ThermoSetting coPolyester – ATSP) for coatings, composites and stock shapes, as well as its new line of molding compound materials at the 2019 Composites and Advanced Materials Expo. ATSP’s EsthermTM molding compound products set a new standard for high temperature performance. Available molding compounds reinforcements include carbon fiber, glass fiber, graphene nanoplatelets, carbon nanotubes, and molybdenum disulfide. ATSP Innovations also provides wear solutions for extreme environments based on our molding materials. Our NOWE™ product line uses blends of ATSP polymer with discontinuous carbon fibers and solid lubricants. NOWETM bearings and stock shape materials offer outstanding wear properties, low coefficients of friction, working temperatures ranging from cryogenic to 300℃, excellent oxidative stability, low moisture pickup, non-flammability, easy machinability with low dust production, and compatibility with Self-BondTM.
All ATSP resins offer high thermal stability (>300℃) and glass transitions (up to 310℃ unfilled), extremely low moisture pickup, flame resistance, and compatibility with ATSP’s Self-BondTM adhesive process. ATSP’s Self-BondTM technology enables rapid (bonding times <5 minutes), low mess, non-tacky high temperature adhesion (60 MPa pulloff strength at 25℃, 4.6 MPa at 380℃) in your manufacturing process. Self-BondTM resins can be deployed via electrostatic powder deposition – allowing adhesive deposition rapidly over broad areas. Self-BondTM enables metallic, ceramic, and high temperature composite materials coated with ATSP to bond to covalently bond to each other as solids throughout the entire process via bond exchange reactions. Advantages of Self-BondTM include wide-area application as powder coating, rapid bonding time, infinite and touch-safe/non-tacky open time, and an entirely solid-state process meaning it is odor-free with no VOCs and is highly automatable, along with high strength over broad temperature range.
Check out our preview in CompositesWorld and come see us in Anaheim, CA on September 23-26 at CAMX 2019 in Booth T72.
