MoldX® Optimized Alumina Trihydrate (ATH)

Non-halogen formulations of polyester composites which meet the most stringent flame retardance requirements are now possible with MoldX® optimized ATH.  Compared with traditional ATH products for composites, MoldX grades offer the outstanding mold flow needed for intricate or large components, while improving flame retardance efficiency.  Huber is excited to introduce MoldX® A400 and MoldX® S45 to its high performing line-up of MoldX optimized ATH product offerings.  Other high- performing grades are MoldX® A110, A105, P18 and P12.  Here's a snapshot of quick facts for you to consider with Huber's MoldX optimized ATH products:
