Scott Bader Introduces New Brands at JEC World 2018

Scott Bader will launch two new brands at JEC World – Crestafire and Crestafix – and give two technical presentations, including one about the Crestafire high performance resin and gel-coat systems available.

Crestafire covers all products that offer fire, smoke and toxic fume (FST) performance for manufacturing fire retardant (FR) composite parts to stringent fire standards required in many building and construction, passenger rail and land transport applications. The Crestafire range includes: FR gel-coats and intumescent topcoats, FR structural adhesives, and a variety of FR-rated open and closed mould, pultrusion and filament winding resins compatible with glass, carbon and aramid fibre reinforcements.

Crestafix rapid cure bonding pastes are strong, light and tough, developed for a variety of key markets including marine, automotive and land transportation.

Scott Bader will be giving open forum technical presentations about both the Crestafire FST performance products and the Crestafix bonding paste product ranges. The first technical presentation, Developments in Polyester and Vinyl Ester Bonding Paste Technology for High Performance Composite Applications, is being given during day two of the show by Yingying Qin, Senior Materials Engineer for Scott Bader, with the second presentation, Scott Bader's Crestafire High Performance Resin & Gel-coat Systems For Demanding Building & Construction and Rail Applications, being made on the last day by Neil Gray, Global Market Manager, Fire, Smoke & Toxic fume (FST) Performance Products.

Other key products and services being promoted by Scott Bader during JEC World this year include:

  • Crystic Ecogel ultra low styrene iso and iso-NPG spray gel-coats, including the ‘zero’ styrene Ecogel S0 PA grade;
  • Crestomer urethane acrylate and Crestabond MMA primer-less structural adhesives for bonding wood, metal, plastic and FRP composite substrates;
  • Crestapol 1260 urethane acrylate resin for producing lightweight CFRP components with high strength and toughness; and
  • the GelTint service, which can mix and rapidly deliver single or multiple 20 kg keg orders in a wide range of RAL, BS, NCS and custom colours to a very high level of colour accuracy.

Visitors to the Scott Bader stand will also have the opportunity to see a Caterham Seven CSR-260 sports car with a custom made lightweight CFRP roof, infused using Crestapol 1260 resin.
