Elium® for wet compression

Discover the Product Range Elium® resins for thermoplastic composites.
Product overview

Elium® resins can be used in wet compression molding or cold press molding, at a temperature ranging from 20°C to 80°C to make recyclable composite parts in a very efficient way. The versatility of this process enables the use of several types of reinforcement, as well as certain functional fillers to bring extra properties to the composite part.
