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.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
After the collapse of a drinking water pipeline in downtown Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Insituform was contracted to reline a close to 100 year old pipe underneath one of the canals. Water was restored successfully within five days, with minimal impact on traffic and the environment.
Innovators and industry pioneers will gather to discuss the latest applications of graphene nanotubes at the Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit (NAUM) 2018 in Shanghai, China, on 31 October. Visitors will also be able to see an on-site demonstration of the production of nanoaugmented products with real industrial equipment.
