Innovative new products developed by Scott Bader are being showcased at The JEC Composites Show in Paris at the beginning of April. The five new products being shown cover a variety of markets and application areas.
Crystic Mouldguard, an easy to apply removable overcoating, specially designed to protect composite or steel moulds when they are not being used in production. Moulds can be back in production in 1/10th of the time it would take if they had not been protected. It can be removed in one piece and can be disposed of easily.
Crystic LS30PA, a new filled pre-accelerated ISO/NPG marine spray gelcoat for use above and below the waterline. It has demonstrated excellent weathering characteristics during extended exposure tests in Florida, with gloss retention, colour fastness and resistance to yellowing all proving to be highly superior to competitive products.
Crystic Crestacoat 5000PA, a new barriercoat for the ultimate mirror like gelcoat surface finish when used as a matched system behind a Crystic gelcoat and with Crystic VE679 skincoat for the ultimate in aesthetics with proven blistering resistance. It is extremely lightweight and can be sprayed or brush applied.
Crystic 344A, a filled fire retardant ISO resin system, which has passed IMO, Building BS 476 and BS 6853/ Epiradiateur M1, F0 for over and underground train approvals. It is easy to apply, making it a suitable fiberglass composite product for interior and exterior applications, where a phenolic resin may have been specified in the past.
Crystic Crestapol 1210 / 1220 / 1230 - a new range of hybrid high performance resins offering designers alternative products to more traditional acrylic and epoxy thermoset materials which can be manufactured by closed mould, hand-lay and pultrusion, for a variety of applications in building & construction, transportation and marine. Scott Bader will be at JEC stand no. E42.
Toho Tenax is introducing a high-tensile, highly shock-resistant prepreg that incorporates carbon fibre developed for aerospace applications and carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
NTPT is collaborating with the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne - Swiss Centre of Technology (EPFL) and other partners to research discontinuous fibre composite tubes for high performance applications.
Hexcel is promoting its range of composite materials for skis, snowboards and other high performance winter sports equipment at ISPO Munich 2018 on 28-31 January.
