Schaffhausen, Switzerland - DSM Composite Resins has been awarded the Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award for its Aeronite Turane resin.
Turane brand resin is a "thermosetting polyurethane created via a radical polymerisation process," a company statement said. According to DSM, Turane will give end-users a product that can be processed much faster than conventional resin, while retaining the mechanical and chemical properties of polyurethanes. The resin can be used in a range of applications where fast-processing times and strong mechanical properties are essential, the company added.
DSM and LH Aviation demonstrated the Aeronite Turane resin system, used in the LH-10 Ellipse sports aircraft, at the JEC Composites show in March 2009. (RD)
