At CAMX 2015, Scott Bader is promoting its latest advanced composite materials and applications, including the carbon fibre compatible high performance Crestapol 1250LV urethane acrylate resin, plus highlighting the benefits to composite fabricators of using bonding products from the ranges of Crestabond and Crestomer structural adhesives, Crystic bonding pastes and Poly-Bond compounds, all developed to provide cost effective joining solutions for the most demanding applications in marine, motorsports, automotive, transportation and building markets.
During CAMX, representatives from Scott Bader and Scott Bader–ATC are making presentations as part of the conference program. A technical paper is being given by Al Horsmon, Independent Marine Consultant, on October 27 at 3:30pm titled: ’Urethane Acrylate Resin Systems – Not Your Normal Sticky Stuff’. An educational paper titled: ‘Replacing Epoxy and Vinyl Ester in Vacuum Infusion and Pultrusion parts made of Carbon fibre and E-glass’ is being presented on October 29 at 8:00am by Jeff Starcher, Technical Sales Manager, Scott Bader.
A recent US marine application case study will be also be showcased, which demonstrates the use of both Crestapol 1250LV infusion resin and Crystic Crestomer structural adhesive to custom build a ‘super strong’, very lightweight, shallow water fishing skiff. Scott Bader claims that Hell’s Bay Boatworks was able to design and build the skiff around 20% lighter due to the combination of having a much thinner hull and deck laminate, made possible by using Crestapol 1250LV infusion resin, along with weight savings from bonding in the bulk-heads and the deck to the hull with Crestomer structural adhesive.
Technical and commercial representatives from Scott Bader and Scott Bader-ATC will be available throughout the show for meetings to discuss any application needs and to answer questions at booth M110.

Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
