Momentive, Western University collaborate for automotive composites research

COLUMBUS, US: Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc and the Fraunhofer Project Centre for Composites Research at Western University have signed a new collaborative agreement to bring a total solutions approach to high-volume, lightweight composites for the North American automotive market. The research collaboration agreement combines the state-of-the-art technology and capabilities of both partners. Development will be oriented particularly toward total solutions for the mass production of lightweight composites solutions serving the automotive sector.

“This partnership makes new processes such as HP-RTM or D-SMC lines much more accessible to the North American automotive industry as both the state-of-the-art systems and equipment will be available. The Company will also use the Fraunhofer Project Centre’s facility and equipment for its own independent research and product development with customers,” said Rich Myers, Chief Technology Officer, Momentive Specialty Chemicals.
