Gurit Introduces their Balsaflex UVOTEC to the American Market

Gurit will showcase their next generation balsa core materials on stand 3436 at the Wind Power 2013 show.

Gurit claim it has developed the next-generation of balsa core materials for the manufacture of ever lighter and lower-cost sandwich panels. It says a unique chemistry modifies the Balsaflex surface topography in such a way that it significantly reduces the quantity of resin absorbed during the infusion process, without negatively compromising the skin adhesive properties. The company say this allows users of Balsaflex to reduce the net weight of infused structures without having to change the infusion processing methods they are familiar with. Gurit goes on to state that the lower resin uptake is also a considerable saving in terms of material cost for their customers. 

Gurit will be displaying its extended structural core offering for the wind energy market, which includes Corecell T-Foam, G-PET, PVCell G-Foam and Balsaflex.

According to Gurit staff from its new sales and technical organisation led by Lance Hill, Sales Director America’s as well as members of Gurit Tooling, including Matthew Muhlenkamp, Tooling Sales and Service Manager, Europe and North America and Bing Chen, General Manager Gurit Tooling will be available at the show to discuss Gurit’s product portfolio and composite tooling service offering.
