DSM Hosts Marine Days Focusing on Improving Cosmetics

02 July 2006

In order to help boat builders find the best solutions in terms of products and processes, DSM Composite Resins is organizing a series of Marine Days.

The first of these was recently held at the Marine Customer Competence Centre in Zwolle, the Netherlands, to an invited group of boat builders, mostly from northern and eastern Europe. The theme of this two day event was ‘Improved Cosmetics’, which combined theory with practical work and highlighted best practice advice on how to achieve optimal results in both mould making and moulding.

There were practical vacuum infusion demonstrations to illustrate key factors for achieving the best cosmetic results with specific products, and factors covered in detail during the session included resin and reinforcement selection and improvements in the application process. “Judging by the positive reactions from customers, it was a great success”, says Marine Business Manager Ronny Ledent. “We are now planning further Marine Days in September and November.”
