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:
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.

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.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with Magnum Venus Products and IACMI–The Composites Institute, are organising Advances in Wind Energy, a two-day workshop exploring advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.
