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:
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.

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
