Epoxy Systems for Automotive Suspension Composites

Our award-winning systems for glass-reinforced suspension components are suitable for short cycle time RTM, prepreg, towpreg and filament winding processes. Benefits include:

  • Good dynamic mechanical properties and fatigue resistance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • High Tg
  • For leaf springs, coil springs or other dynamic components

These systems save energy twice—during manufacture, and by reducing vehicle weight.
