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 American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
