Arkema is launching at JEC Europe 2014 (March 11-13) its first range of liquid thermoplastic resins under the brand Elium, which is transformed using the same processes as composite thermosets.

Arkema (King of Prussia, Pa., USA) reported on March 3 that it is launching at JEC Europe 2014 (March 11-13) its first range of liquid thermoplastic resins under the brand Elium, which is transformed using the same processes as composite thermosets. Elium resins are said to polymerize quickly and can be used to design structural parts as well as aesthetic elements in the automotive, transportation, wind power, sports and building and construction applications.

Arkema says composite parts made from Elium are 30 percent to 50 percent lighter than the same parts made from steel, but offer the same resistance. When combined with Arkema Luperox peroxide initiators, Elium can be molded into complex design forms for composite parts and blends well with glass fibers or carbon fibers. It is also compatible with conventional thermosetting resin transformation technologies, including resin transfer molding (RTM) and infusion.

Because of its thermoplastic properties, Elium can be used to manufacture composite parts that are easily thermoformed and recyclable with comparable mechanical performance to epoxy parts. Parts made from Elium reportedly can be assembled by welding and/or gluing, especially with adhesives from Arkema's subsidiary, AEC Polymers.
