Scott Bader has renewed its DNV GL approval for the Crestafix 621CC 65, 621CC 30, 621CC 45, 621CC 20 White and 621CC 85 urethane acrylate/isophthalic polyester bonding pastes.
The Crestafix 621CC range has been granted Grade 2 sandwich approval, meaning they can be used in all marine vessels classed by DNV GL.
The approval is valid until 2022 and is applicable for Crestafix 621CC products produced at Scott Bader’s French plant in Amiens. In addition, for the first time, the products have been DNV GL approved when manufactured in Scott Bader’s UK plant.
The Crestafix 621CC products are non-sagging, filled compounds designed for the assembly and bonding of GRP mouldings.
This is the latest DNV GL approval for Scott Bader’s adhesive range, after Crestabond M1-30 and M1-60 gained ‘Duromeric’ DNV GL approval during 2015.
