DIC to showcase epoxy resins and polyphenylene sulphide at JEC World 2016

08 March 2016

During JEC World 2016, manufacturers of high-performance composites will be introduced to DIC Corporation’s (Sun Chemical’s parent company) proprietary EPICLON® epoxy resins and hardeners as well as Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) for extremely durable and lightweight composites.

Co-exhibiting with Spolchemie, DIC’s joint venture partner for epoxy production in Europe since 2004, visitors of stand #5A L 65, will learn how EPICLON epoxy resins and hardeners provide composites with heat and water resistance, high glass transition temperature (Tg) and flame retardant properties.

To adapt to the ever-evolving composites market, EPICLON epoxy resins and hardeners are formulated to meet the highly specialized needs of every composites manufacturer. In addition to these specific grades, EPICLON is available in popular varieties for a vast range of applications.

DIC’s PPS solutions provide composites with excellent chemical resistance, a significantly lighter weight than metal, and a high melting point of -280°C. As a leading brand of Polyphenylene Sulfide in Europe, DIC’s PPS is also a trusted solution for lightweight and highly durable composites.

By combining EPICLON and PPS from the DIC Corporation, manufacturers can ensure that they are producing the most durable and lightweight composites on the market. With over a century of R&D expertise, the DIC Corporation is committed to exceeding its customers’ expectations in broad markets, from green energy at home to interstellar satellites.

"Our customers want composites solutions that are optimized for their application, provide durability and come from a trusted global partner,” said Stefan Hellwig, Division Manager of Specialty Materials Department, Sun Chemical Advanced Materials-DIC Europe GmbH. "Unlike conventional epoxy resins, EPICLON grades are designed to exceed performance requirements in highly specific applications and meet DIC’s high quality standards. Using our global footprint, DIC also provides distribution and technical support in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.”
