Loctite MAX2 from Henkel is a polyurethane-based composite matrix resin that offers faster curing than traditional epoxy resins and is suitable for various applications, including automotive and aerospace. Developed for the resin transfer molding process, Henkel's composite matrix resin is claimed to enable improved economics and throughput in processing. During injection, Loctite MAX2 also is said to offer more efficient impregnation without stressing the fibers due to the lower viscosity of the resin. The composite properties of the material were specially developed to provide more flexibility as well as much higher impact resistance than traditional epoxy resins.
