Chem-Trend will present its portfolio of Chemlease branded release agents for the processing of composite materials at booth P83 at JEC Europe next week.
According to Chem-Trend, focus will be on the presentation of the recently introduced Chemlease One FS EZ branded semi permanent release agents. They say the new EZ variant provides the same trusted performance as the well-proven One FS, but with many new improvements. In addition, the product is free of hazardous air pollutants, which contributes to a more environmentally sound working environment.
Chem-Trend explains that the main advantage of the innovative Chemlease EZ series is its user-friendliness and efficiency. The new products have been developed to deliver improved mould surface wetting properties, making them much easier to apply. Minimal additional mould surface preparation is required in order to deliver a streak-free or smear-free finished surface, resulting in significantly less time spent in mould preparation while producing a high quality product devoid of imperfections. Once applied, Chem-Trend explains that operators merely allow the coating to dry and cure before beginning production.
“Chem-Trend’s new Chemlease EZ products have been successfully introduced for the manufacture of flawless, high quality components”, says Tomasz Krause, European Sales Manager Composites at Chem-Trend. “Additionally, they are ideally suited for applications where high gloss finishes are required, such as marine, automotive, tub and shower, artificial marble, or general fibreglass applications”.
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
The Brazilian composite sector expects to close 2018 with a turnover of US$ 685 million, a high of 3.8% compared to the previous year.
