Ecogel Cronos to Showcase Innovative Environmentally Friendly Gel Coat Process at JEC World

Ecogel Cronos to Showcase Innovative Environmentally Friendly Gel Coat Process at JEC World

  • Tuesday, 1st March 2016
  • Reading time: about 2 minutes

Ecogel Cronos will be showcasing its environmentally friendly advanced powder gel coat formulation and process, demonstrating how powder gel coats can directly replace liquid gel coats.

It will provide tools to implement this novel material into a real production of composite parts. The coating and process offers significant reductions in VOC emissions in the RTM production plant.

This innovative product and process will be exhibited through the following:

  • An example of the powder coating.
  • Flat panels created using the powder.
  • An RTM machine used in the process.
  • A 1m2 heated skin.

Raquel Giner Borrull, Project Manager and Coordinator from AIMPLAS, said, “Replacement of liquid gel coats with powder gel coats, in the RTM industry, provides significant benefits related to economics, safety, the environment and process flexibility. Curing time of powder gel coat is reduced up to 80% when compared to conventional liquid gel coat which will contribute to increase RTM process production ratios.”  

The project is led by AIMPLAS, Spain, and involves 12 other project partners: AIMPLAS, Spain, SBS, Italy, Composite Integration, UK, Clerium, Netherlands, Indupol, Belgium, Axon, United Kingdom, NetComposites, United Kingdom, FACHHOCHSCHULE BIELEFELD, Germany, e-Xstream, Luxemburg, Ecoinnova, Spain, KETEK, Finland, IK4-Cidetec, Spain, Megara Resins, Greece.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 under grant agreement n° 609203.

Ecogel Chronos will be displayed in Hall 6, Stand R52.
