SICOMIN exhibited new product ranges at Composites Europe, Stuttgart, Germany.

In addition to an existing portfolio of high-performance products, a range of fire retardant systems and liquid expanding epoxy foams are a key focus at the show demonstrating how SIMOCIN’s innovations are enhancing many applications.

The company states these two component epoxy foaming systems are perfectly suited for Aerospace, Rail, Marine and Sports applications. With excellent bonding properties on composites, metal, and plastic, they are also compatible with fresh polyester gel coat surfaces. Formulated and available in 4 standard densities (from 170kg/m3) the specialist epoxies feature very low expansion pressure, no shrinkage during and after hardening and a closed cell characteristic. This inhibits water uptake and allows the finished parts to be used underwater without adverse effect. Customised solutions such as fire retardant, higher Tg, sprayable versions are also available.

 

This range of epoxy systems were recently accredited with the ASTM E-84 Class A standard for the Civil Engineering industryand the FAR25-853 Standard and Heat Release Rate for the Aerospace industry. The products are suitable for laminating, infusion, prepregging, epoxy foaming and coating production methods.
