Polynt Composites (EMEA) has launched Gravicol 2015 in its range of Gravicol Bonding Pastes.
According to Polynt, Gravicol 2015 is an economically priced, pre-accelerated bonding paste, based upon Unsaturated Polyester Resin which has been developed for static bonds and bonding of thin joints in composite parts.
Main benefits are described as its economic formula offering a balanced price/performance bond, good flexural strength and high compressive strength. It is a semi-rigid bonding paste without fibres and Polynt explains that it has a very smooth consistency and is easy to apply using a spatula or comb applicator. Gravicol 2015 demonstrates low shrinkage after curing and is suitable for most bonding applications. It cures at room temperature (15-25˚C) using MEKP peroxide.
Polynt claims that additional Typical Characteristics of Gravicol 2015 are that it is a viscous material curing to a dark grey final colour, maintaining many of the well-known and valued properties of our popular standard range of bonding pastes.
The X-Treme 32, the new all-round racer from G-Force Yachts, was built using Diab’s Divinycell HM core materials and the engineering expertise of Composites Consulting Group (CCG).
With its new ‘Process Live’ format, processing and manufacturing processes will become a visible focus of this year's Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November. Mechanical and plant engineering companies will get together in group exhibits to showcase their technologies in live interactions, enabling visitors to experience sub-processes in a larger context.
The new facilities of IRG CosiMo (Industry Research Group: Composites for Sustainable Mobility) were unveiled in Augsburg, Germany, by State Minister Franz Josef Pschierer from the Bavarian Ministry of Economics, Energy and Technology, during an opening ceremony on 28 September 2018.
