Scott Bader will exhibit advanced composite materials at Composites Europe 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany from 7-9 October.
Scott Bader states it will also display ‘super car’ automotive applications, using carbon fibre reinforced Crestapol 1250LV high performance acrylic resin and Crestabond primer-less methacrylate structural adhesive during the show.
The company explains the Spanish designed and manufactured Tauro V8 Spyder super car will be featured in the exhibition showcase area for show visitors to see close up.
According to Scott Bader, the Tauro V8 car has carbon and glass fibre reinforced body panels and bumpers, vacuum infused using Crestapol 1250LV by Spain’s leading rally car custom body parts fabricator, Karbonius Composites. Crestapol 1250LV is the specified laminate resin due to its toughness, rapid flow and low temperature cure for fast infusion cycle times, plus its compatibility with both carbon and Aramid fibres, as well as glass fibres.
Pigmented Crystic gelcoats are also used on the super car’s composite body panels. Scott Bader states Crestabond M1 structural adhesive grade is used to bond a variety of metal and composite parts on the car, including the carbon fibre Crestapol body panels. A technical paper on Crestapol 1250LV resin covering the features, benefits and success stories in Advanced Composites applications, with a focus on carbon fibre automotive body parts, is being given in an open forum presentation on the 9th October at 12:30pm.
The company explains that there will be particular focus this year on the new Crestabond M1-04 ‘rapid bond’ grade with its shorter fixture time of only 8-10 minutes. This recently developed ‘rapid bond’ grade is expected to be of particular interest to automotive OEMs and specialist tier 1 and 2 fabricators.
The company will be exhibiting at on stand 8b/C26 at the show.
