  • Reading time: less than a minute

Interplastic Corporation’s Thermoset Resins Division’s Cast Polymer Development Laboratory have introduced the latest Silmar® brand resin, SIL94BA-2000 Volume-Enhanced Resin.

This new marble/onyx resin was designed for dual-purpose applications. It is claimed to have the unique ability to uniformly encapsulate microscopic air within the matrix, enabling parts to be lighter. As a corollary, matrix volume will increase while resin consumption will decrease. A typical marble manufacturing operation should see a parts increase of 5 to 7 percent. In addition, parts appear brighter.
