Success Story Roding Roof

We helped developing a composite roof for the Roding Roadster that has an immediately paintable high quality surface right after molding.

Our Challenge

Develop a new process for composite parts that can be taken straight out of the mold with a high-quality surface that is directly paintable.

Our Contribution

Henkel developed the next generation of polyurethane resin LOCTITE MAX 3 that is suitable for surface RTM (resin transfer molding).

The Benefits

  • High-quality surface finish for exterior applications
  • Cost reduction as no surface preparation is needed
  • Tailored internal release agent for easy mold removal
  • Fast injection speeds and short cycle times
  • Suitable for mass production
