Spolchemie reports that EnviPOXY, a drop-in bioplastic material, is an epoxy resin whose input is waste glycerine from biodiesel production, containing 28% of biocarbon (ASTM D6866).

For industries such as construction, transportation and wind energy, by using EnviPOXY with conventional or bio-based reinforcement fibres companies can dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of their products.

EnviPOXY is also interesting for consumers who are sensitive to their own carbon footprint. Due to the low water absorption of epoxies, EnviPOXY is an ideal material for water, winter and outdoor sports equipment such as boats, kayaks, skis, snowboards, bikes and golf clubs, Spolchemie reports. Combined with wood and natural fibres, the resin offers a long service life and aesthetic appearance.

The EnviPOXY line (previously named CHS-EPOXY G) now includes three types of epoxies suitable not only for composite systems but for all applications where reducing the carbon footprint is important, such as vehicle coatings, surface treatment of bridges and constructions, flooring, etc. The Spolchemie research team offers product development in cooperation with customers, tailored to their needs. Environmentally friendly hardeners and reactive solvents are further options.

Spolchemie will exhibit on Stand K40 at Advanced Engineering 2017 on 1-2 November in Birmingham, UK.
