Materia, Inc. to Introduce New Composite Resins

Thursday, Sep 07, 2017

Materia, Inc., a world-leading supplier of high performance catalysts and advanced polymers, will showcase its Proxima® high performance resin product lines including ballistic test panels, large single pour castings, high temperature oil & gas downhole tools and sections of composite pressure vessels at the Composites & Advanced Materials Expo in Orlando, Fla. September 11-14, 2017. Proxima resins provide reliable, practical and economical solutions for the oil & gas, corrosion and transportation industries. Proxima resins are easily processed into durable polymer products that are ideally suited for extreme environments.

Materia will soon launch an advanced composites resin, Proxima ACR 4350, featuring a Tg > 350° F for elevated service temperature parts that also require durability and toughness. "The new Proxima ACR 4350 composites resin is ultra-tough and resistant to high temperatures, but also has low viscosity suitable for vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM). This new material addresses an industry need that has not been met by epoxies or polyurethanes," said Cliff Post, Vice President, Commercial & Business Development at Materia. "Proxima ACR and HPR resins are new and exciting product lines to the world of mostly traditional thermoset materials."   

In addition to the exhibit, Materia's Dr. Brian Edgecombe will present "Leveraging High Toughness, Low Viscosity Resin in Composite Pressure Vessels" to introduce a new application for Materia's Proxima ACR 4100 product line. Please contact Materia to purchase Proxima HPR and ACR resins, or purchase them through a distribution partner - Composites One, LLC, Plastic Materials Inc., and Walsh & Associates.
