Scott Bader-ATC is exhibiting at the new Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) taking place from 13-16 October in Orlando, Florida, US.
Scott Bader-ATC state it will be showcasing new products and applications using its advanced composite materials.
The company explains it will be displaying its range of specialty fire retardant (FR) unsaturated polyester Crystic resins and Fireguard gelcoats for FRP laminates, developed for applications needing parts with very low surface spread of flame, low smoke and low toxic fumes (FST).
According to Scott Bader-ATC, its range of Crestapol high performance urethane acrylate based acrylic resins provide exceptional FST performance, with grade options for pultrusion and closed mould processing to produce finished parts. All Crestapol grades available can be heavily ATH filled, offering designers a combination of mechanical strength, toughness, outstanding FST and high temperature performance
Scott Bader-ATC says it will be featuring automotive applications which now use Crestapol 1250LV resin to cost effectively vacuum infuse extremely tough, very lightweight body panels parts reinforced with woven fabrics made from glass, carbon and Aramid fibers. Crestapol 1250LV is now specified by several leading specialist fabricators of custom made carbon fiber motorsport body parts.
On the Scott Bader-ATC stand will also be the new ‘rapid bond’ Crestabond M1-04 grade, launched earlier in 2014 and developed to increase production efficiencies for high volume parts assembly. With no requirement for a substrate primer and a working time of only 3-4 minutes, Scott Bader-ATC state assembled parts bonded with Crestabond M1-04 can be moved on to the next stage of production in as little as eight minutes.
The other structural adhesives being promoted during CAMX by Scott Bader-ATC is the urethane acrylate based Crystic Crestomer range, which it claims has Lloyds Acceptance, DNV and RINA approvals, and a proven track record in hull and deck marine applications, as well as in building and infrastructure structural bonding applications; Crestomers can be used to bond marine ply, aluminum and stainless steel parts to fibreglass.
Also featured will be its range of POLY-BOND repair, gap filling and general purpose bonding compounds, with grade options suitable for bonding both polyester and vinyl ester fibreglass parts.
Scott Bader ATC will be exhibiting on stand 2160 at the show.
Chomarat has invested in a new pilot production line to develop its next generation of scrim reinforcements for the construction market. Conceived for the development of cement board and roof-waterproofing reinforcements, the machine can also develop materials for new markets.
PUGreen, a vegetable-based polyurethane resin for composites applications, is being launched by CPA and Purcom during Feiplar Composites, 6-8 November, in São Paulo, Brazil.
A Composite Advantage fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) FiberSPAN deck has been installed on a 143-year-old wrought iron bridge in Ontario.
