Body & Closure Panels

Arotran™ resins and resin systems can be utilized in the automotive and heavy-truck markets for both Class A and structural-part applications. Arotran resin technology provides excellent mechanical properties, toughness and surface appearance. Arotran Class A SMC and structural resins utilize nano-composite materials to provide original equipment manufacturers and molders with lower-mass SMCs which result in lighter parts. Parts made from Arotran Class A resins offer superior surface finish, reduction in paint pops, excellent bond and paint adhesion properties. Parts made from Arotran structural resins provide lower-mass structural parts with excellent mechanical and heat-resistance properties.
