Feiplar was the venue chosen by Reichhold to announce new products launched this year, bringing innovation, services and technology to the South America region.
Gelcoat Norpol SVG: in line with good practices of sustainable development, Reichhold developed this new line of gelcoats Norpol SVG characterized by significant VOC reduction into the environment and the ease application under different conditions of temperature..
Norpol VBC Barriercoat: this technology developed by Reichhold helps to reduce fibre print-through and obtain a smoother surface on the finished laminate with resistance to blistering (osmotic blisters). Its application is made through conventional equipment used for gelcoats.
Polylite 33220-00: this new resin Reichhold developed for the vacuum infusion process mostly used for marine and automotive markets. This resin provides low contraction, reducing the effect of print-through and its low viscosity allows excellent wet out of glass fibres. Aligned to what was presented at the booth, Reichhold had six technical lectures at the congress also performed three technical live demonstrations on RTM Light, Vacuum Infusion, and Filament Winding processes.
A team of engineers at the University of Delaware (UD) is developing next-generation smart textiles by creating flexible carbon nanotube composite coatings on a wide range of fibres, including cotton, nylon and wool.
SABIC is launching its STADECK heavy-duty panel for the building and construction industry. Made from glass fibre reinforced thermoplastic resin, the lightweight panel is said to offer significant advantages across a range of applications where weight saving is important.
Haydale has supplied graphene enhanced prepreg for Juno, a 3 m wide composite-skinned unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which was revealed during Futures Day at the 2018 Farnborough Air Show.
