France's leading chemical company, Arkema recently announced a distribution agreement with Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), a recognized worldwide leader in nanomaterials applications, for nano-enhanced liquid epoxy resins in the European market. The products powered by ZPM will be sold under the Arkema's brand name Graphistrength®. This new line of liquid epoxy resins developed by ZPM and Arkema are high performance, multi-wall carbon nanotube strengthened epoxies suitable for numerous composites and adhesives applications. It processes as easily as unfilled epoxy resin and can be cured with a wide range of curing agents. It will come at first in bisphenol-A or bisphenol-F and a soon to be released tetrafunctional resin system. The company says Graphistrength® epoxy resins are recommended for use in composite manufacturing processes such as filament winding, pultrusion, hand lay-up, and prepreg. Graphistrength® epoxy resins can be used with most types of reinforcing fibers and fabrics such as carbon, glass, and aramid. It can also be used in adhesive and coatings applications with the proper choice of curing agent. Graphistrength® epoxy resins offer dramatic increases in mechanical properties when compared to standard epoxy resins while causing little or no change to current manufacturing processes.
