Ashland offers ‘green’ closed-molding option

In alliance with JHM Technologies Inc., New Boston RTM and SR Composites, Ashland Distribution is introducing The Green Connection, which offers customers a program for closed-molding processes focused on improving productivity and environmental performance.

Through The Green Connection, Ashland customers interested in transitioning production to Resin Transfer Molding and Lite RTM have access to the capabilities of JHM Technologies and New Boston RTM. Additionally, the SR Composites' sprayable vacuum bag technology provides a production-proven solution to the Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding process.

"Our customers are looking for ways to increase their efficiency and improve upon their environmental stewardship," said Don Belock, composites sales director, Ashland Distribution, in a statement. "Our offering provides the most effective way for us to help our customers meet those goals. Our partners specialize in training, equipment, molds, tooling and production, so by creating this connection we provide a true strategic benefit for our customers."

Composites manufacturers can obtain the specialized skills, training and equipment for closed-molding processes from one source. Closed-molding processes have proven reliability and improved cost efficiency, and it is Ashland's intent to ease the customer transition process for closed molding by bringing this connection together, the company said in a statement.
