Scott Bader to Promote Innovative New Products at JEC

  • Friday, 20th March 2009
  • Reading time: about 2 minutes

Scott Bader will have on its stand D45 innovative new high performance resins and epoxy bonding gelcoat products at the JEC show this year.

Components made from Crestapol 1210 and 1212 high performance resins will be shown on the Scott Bader stand. They are tough, low viscosity, high reactivity resins based on innovative urethane acrylate chemistry, developed in-house. According to Scott Bader, the main advantages of Crestapol urethane acrylate resins over unsaturated polyester or vinyl ester resins are: very fast cure – needs no post cure ; higher productivity – faster pultrusion haul off rates and rapid closed mould cycle times under 7 mins; significantly higher mechanical properties – particularly fracture toughness and load fatigue.

Scott Bader say that Crestapol 1210 and 1212 resins produce tough, dimensionally stable parts with excellent surface finish. Crestapol 1210 is recommended for manufacturers looking for a cost effective, high productivity closed mould resin, which handles easily, even highly filled. Crestapol 1212 is recommended for pultrusion, offering rapid haul off rates. Crestapol resins are intended for rail, metro, truck, bus, and building applications. Manufacturers in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Germany, Turkey and China are currently already using Crestapol resins.

A new Crystic Rapid Tooling Resin will also be on show. Crystic RTR 4000PA, is a new rapid tooling resin which cures using an MEKP catalyst. It is a replacement for the current rapid tooling resin, developed in response to customer’s feedback, which asked better handling properties, improved shrinkage control and most important of all, a resin which can be used with a standard MEKP catalyst. Available from March ’09, Scott Bader say that Crystic RTR 4000PA, which is hand applied, provides all of these improvements and is also fully compatible with the brush tooling gelcoat Crystic 14PA and Crystic VE 679PA, a vinyl ester / DCPD skincoat, to provide a high performance Matched Rapid Tooling System to make high quality FRP mouldings

Another Scott Bader innovation ,Epoxy Bonding Crystic Isophthalic Gelcoat is also on show, developed specifically to offer a polyester gelcoat for use with epoxy resins. The system is intended to provide a reliable, permanent bond with wet lay or pre-preg epoxy resin systems.
