The Sicomin team will present GreenPoxy, its developed line of bio-based epoxy resins at JEC World, Paris, France.
Sicomin says that,with a bio-based carbon content ranging from 28% to 51%, the highest on the market tested in accordance with ASTM D6866, it offers the largest choice of bio-systems that can be used for hand-laminating, Infusion, Pultrusion / filament winding and HP-RTM.
GreenPoxy is highly appreciated in the sport and leisure industry for its clarity and uncompromising mechanical performances. At JEC World, Sicomin will display a state of the art bio-Surfboard, Snowboard and Wakeboard all produced in collaboration with a number of leading OEM’s, as well as the 2014 JEC Innovations Award winning Skateboard, all made using GreenPoxy resins.
Sicomin adds that another key launch at JEC World, will be SR 1125. This advanced self-extinguishing fire retardant epoxy is unique to composites as it can be used for infusion processes at room temperature unlike many other fire retardant resins that must be applied through hand lamination. SR 1125 features a low viscosity that ensures a steady, predictable and consistent resin flow. Thanks to this unique formulation, SR 1125 can pass through reinforcement fabrics without any filtering of the fire retardant components.
SR 1125 has been developed by Sicomin predominantly for the production of large parts for the civil, construction and rail markets where high quality components, fire resistance and excellent mechanical properties are essential.
Sicomin will be showcasing this new range of systems in Hall 6, Stand F47.
