Sicomin Launches Engineering Services at JEC World 2018

At JEC World Sicomin will highlight its new engineering services and showcase a variety of key product ranges including bio, clear, fire retardant and foaming epoxy systems.

Sicomin's new engineering service means customers can receive a finely tuned package that is optimised to their specific requirements. This enhanced offering will ensure Sicomin is able to offer a complete portfolio of superior epoxy systems coupled with bespoke engineering guidance.

Key products on show include:

  • GreenPoxy bio-based epoxy systems: These are widely used in a variety of markets such as marine structures, leisure and winter board sports and electric vehicles. The range was recently awarded the DNV-GL, USDA BioPreferred Label and Sustainable Surf Gold Level. GreenPoxy represents a significant transition in production methods and provides manufacturers with a transparent and sustainable business model based on renewable resources.
  • Top Clear: A next generation, coating formulation for clear carbon and other varnished components now used and certified by the automotive industry.
  • Foaming systems: Sicomin has developed the largest range of multiple density foaming systems that when combined with one of Sicomin’s extensive choice of hardeners, create versatile core material and a high strength bond between two laminate skins made of epoxy, polyester or vinyl ester resins.

In conjunction with Decision, Sicomin will also await the results of the JEC Innovation Awards 2018, having been selected as a finalist for their joint entry in the Smart Cities category. The Sicomin and Decision entry details the application of InfuGreen 810 bio-resin in the production of the SeaBubbles water taxis prototypes. Sicomin has been recognised for its ongoing investment in developing a full range of sustainable bio-based systems and hardeners. This commitment will allow manufacturers the opportunity to introduce sustainable materials into their products, contributing to lower environmental impact throughout the supply chain. As an eco-friendly mode of transport, the SeaBubbles specification called for a bio-based infusion resin that demonstrated the equivalent performance to a conventional resin and which also enabled a high-volume manufacturing technique. Sicomin overcame the challenges associated in formulating a product that combined these two factors and created InfuGreen 810 – the first bio-epoxy, infusion-specific resin that is a cost effective, low viscosity system available in industrial volumes.
