Bayer MaterialScience LLC and Composites One announced a distribution agreement in which Composites One will sell Bayer MaterialScience’s polyurethane resin systems directly to composite parts manufacturers throughout the United States.

The agreement covers the distribution and sale of all fully formulated Bayer MaterialScience polyurethane systems developed for use in manufacturing composite parts, particularly those manufactured through the pultrusion, resin transfer molding, vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding, resin infusion and filament winding processes.

The agreement does not include the sales of Bayer MaterialScience polyurethane raw materials.

“There are many opportunities in composites and the market is constantly looking for new materials that offer unique advantages. We are very involved with customers as they move from open-mold processing to closed-mold techniques and to use low-VOC chemistries,” Composites One vice president of marketing Greg Shymske said in a statement.

“Consistent with these trends, polyurethane products offer real performance and environmental benefits over some of the chemistries traditionally used in the manufacture of composites, and we want to offer those benefits to our customers,” he added. “Selling Bayer MaterialScience polyurethane systems will enable us to do so.”
