Optimal performance of composite materials requires elimination of air bubbles and voids as well as complete fiber wet-out during manufacture. In this webinar, BYK will present a range of additives that achieve this for various thermoset resins and discuss the underlying mechanism and selection of these additives. Furthermore, BYK will present a new class of additives called coupling agents that create a strong mechanical bond between resin and reinforcement, providing higher mechanical strength and more freedom in the design of composite parts.
