Further RINA Certification for Crystic Crestomer Structural Adhesive

15 February 2010

Crystic Crestomer has recently received additional composite application approvals by RINA.

Originally, RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) certified Crystic Crestomer 1196PA in May 2009, for its use as a structural adhesive to bond cores and skin laminates in marine sandwich structures.

These latest RINA approvals have been awarded to two bulk grades: Crestomer 1152PA (MEKP- cured ) and 1151A (BPO-cured) both supplied in 200kg drums and 25kg kegs, as well as the two 380ml cartridge versions: Crestomer Advantage 10 and 30, which offer a choice of either a 10 or 30 minute working time.

The RINA certification is for the use of these products for the structural bonding of glassfibre reinforced plastic composites.

Scott Bader has continually sought to gain RINA approval for their Crestomer products in order to meet customer demands.

RINA is one of the founding members of IACS (International Association of Classification Societies) and actively participates in technical, research and rule-making groups in different institutional contexts at national and international level.
