Case Study: Styrene Free Resins in the Composites Industry - A Study of One Alternative
MPCA and the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) conducted a composites grant project from October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012. Activities for this composites project focused on evaluation of operational requirements and performance of a styrene free resin system for the Minnesota Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) manufacturing sector. Renewed outreach to the sector built on work done earlier by MnTAP and MPCA and served to develop contacts and provide participants for this project. A pilot trial was conducted, samples were analyzed for physical property performance, and a webinar was held to present the results broadly to the industry and to help establish reasonable next steps for implementation of non-styrene resin materials in the composites industry.
