Gurit will be presenting a series of products for the marine, automotive and wind energy markets at the JEC 2007 exhibition in Paris from 3rd – 5th April.
The latest addition to porfolio of marine technologies is ST70. This structural laminating product, part of the patented Sprint range, produces a reduction in cure temperature to 70°C. ST70 is said to provide excellent mechanical properties, long outlife and ultra-low void content laminates from vacuum-bag-only processing. ST70 is suitable for use in the high volume manufacture of hulls, decks and bulkheads.
Gurit’s development of a composite automotive package took a significant step in 2006 with a joint technology program between the company and one of the world’s most prestigious OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturer). Gurit will start the supply of parts from a dedicated new facility at its UK site during 2007
Gurit has developed an all-in-one, in-mould surfacing solution for wind turbine blade production. Sprint IPT (Integrated Primer Technology) combines Sprint triax with a high performance surfacing technology, replacing the need for individual triax and coating materials. IPT technology incorporates a compatible toughened, abradable, surfacing film which when cured provides a direct paintable surface. This eliminates the need for a process coat in turbine blade production, thus saving considerable production lay-up time and cost.

One of the most respected and successful names in motorsport is working with lightweighting and materials researchers at the AMRC to advance its processes for manufacturing recyclable composite components that extend useful lifetimes and reduce tooling costs.
Kordsa, operating in tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market with its mission ‘We Reinforce Life’, has launched a new campaign with the slogan ‘Inspired from life, we reinforce life’.
Chomarat is developing its Coatings & Films business at its French sites. The Group has just acquired an extruder and a graining line to increase its production capacities and develop new, more efficient solutions, particularly in the field of TPO (polyolefin thermoplastics).
