SICOMIN will be participating at Composites Europe, Stuttgart from the 17 -19 September where it will showcase a new range of fire retardant systems and liquid expanding epoxy foams.
The two-component epoxy foaming systems are perfectly suited for Aerospace, Rail, Marine and Sports applications. With excellent bonding properties on composites, metal, and plastic, they are also compatible with fresh polyester gel coat surfaces. Formulated and available in 4 standard densities (from 170kg/m3) the specialist epoxies feature very low expansion pressure, no shrinkage during and after hardening and a closed cell characteristic. This inhibits water uptake and allows the finished parts to be used underwater without adverse effect. Customised solutions such as fire retardant, higher Tg, sprayable versions are also available.
Its new range of fire-retardant epoxy systems were recently accredited with the ASTM E-84 Class-A standard for the Civil Engineering industryand the FAR25-853 Standard and Heat Release Rate for the Aerospace industry. The products are suitable for laminating, infusion, prepregging, epoxy foaming and coating production methods.
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.
CRP USA will display solutions for the space industry manufactured in the Windform family of materials at Satellite Innovation 2018 at the Silicon Valley Computer History Museum, Mountain View, California, US, on 9-11 October.
Chem-Trend has been certified by the DQS (German Certification Company for Management Systems) in accordance with EN 9100:2016, fulfilling the strict quality requirements for aerospace suppliers.
