Sicomin has joined forces with snowboard manufacturer Nidecker to produce Nidecker’s first bio-based snowboard.

The prototype board will be displayed on both the Nidecker booth and at the Sicomin showcase on the GreenroomVoice Booth (B6/526) at ISPO Munich 2016 which runs from the 24th – 27th January 2016.

According to Sicomin, the Nidecker prototype uses it’s GreenPoxy 56, a new generation bio based epoxy produced with over 50% of carbon content derived from plant and vegetable origin. Tested in accordance with ASTM D6866, Sicomin claims that GreenPoxy 56 has the highest green carbon epoxy resin content on the market and provides excellent laminate properties as well as achieving a tough, strong and durable bond on all surfaces.

Produced by Meditec, Tunisia, for Nidecker, the board is constructed using a conventional compression moulding hot press thanks to the easy processing attributes of this epoxy system and Sicomin says it will showcase the board on the GreenroomVoice booth (GRV).
