Scott Bader will be exhibiting its latest technology advanced materials and services for manufacturing high performance composite parts, including its Crystic Ecogel ‘ultra-low’ styrene content spray gelcoats range with four grade options for a variety of end applications including marine, transportation, buildings, general industrial and wind turbine blades.
According to Scott Bader, its Crestapol range of high performance acrylic resins are used for the production of fire retardant and lightweight FRP composite high performance components by open moulding, closed moulding and pultrusion. At Advanced Engineering this year, Scott Bader’s particular focus will be on fire performance, highlighting gelcoated laminate systems available using Crestapol resin grade options, aluminium trihydrate (ATH) filled combined with fire retardant (FR) Crystic gelcoat grades, and the various fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) specifications passed by individual systems specified for building, rail and transportation applications.
Scott Bader explains that its new GelTint colour mixing service offers a very fast response time, with typical lead times of two working days. Its GelTint volumetric gelcoat RAL colour tinting service, launched earlier this year and being gradually rolled out across Europe, combines rapid gelcoat order fulfilment in small batch colours with guaranteed quality, performance and colour accuracy, based on its Crystic resin technology.
Scott Bader will also exhibits its Crestabond primerless methacrylate structural adhesives range which it says now includes two new adhesive products; Crestabond M1-02, with a sub-three minute curing time, aimed at higher volume assembly of metal, plastic and composite components and Crestabond PP-04, a 1:1 mix ratio grade specifically developed for rapidly bonding low surface energy thermoplastics. All grades can structurally bond a wide range of substrates, with virtually no need for pre-application surface preparation or a primer.
In the Composites Engineering product feature area, Scott Bader will also showcase a Laser single-handed Olympic class dinghy, manufactured in the UK by LaserPerformance and using Scott Baders marine approved resins, gelcoats and core bonding materials for FRP composites.
