Epoxy hardener improves properties of molding compounds

Each year, International GREEN Auto Lightweight Technology Alliance (IALTA), recognizes technologically innovative companies that have made outstanding contributions to the development of innovative international automotive lightweight and green technology applications.


The 2019 Award was presented at the 13th International Automotive Lightweight Technology and Material Technology Innovation Application Summit, which was held in Hefei, China in December 2019.

Nine solutions were nominated in advance and these companies gave 15-minute presentations introducing their innovations to the jury and audience. Then winners were selected by OEM voting and jury evaluation.

Automotive Lightweight Green Technology Innovation Award from IALTA is to recognize those technologies that are significantly beneficial for vehicle energy-saving, emission-reduction and safety as well as the application of lightweight vehicle material.

Evonik Technical Manager, Kevin Li, introduced VESTALITE® S curing agents which are developed especially for the automotive industry to meet increasingly stringent requirements for both light weight design and vehicle indoor air quality.

“VESTALITE® S curing agents in combination with epoxy resins result in SMC materials that are quick and easy to process for structural lightweight applications with minimal emission values,” says Dr.-Ing. Leif Ickert, who is responsible for marketing of composites and adhesives in Evonik’s Crosslinkers business line.

The epoxy hardener VESTALITE® S improves the technical properties and workability of high-performance sheet molding compounds (SMCs). It allows greater design freedom and makes the composite materials fit for use in e-mobility and in automotive lightweight construction.
