Published on 2012-02-02. Author : SpecialChem

Resintex Technology S.r.l. is this year exhibiting new product ranges at Seatec 2012 in Carrara, Italy, which runs from 8th - 10th February. On their stand (Hall E, stand 1095) they will be promoting an extended range of specialty raw materials, reinforcements and ancillary composite products which they supply across Italy, as well as their closed mould technology expertise. Resintex Technology is the official distribution partner for leading manufacturers such as: Scott Bader, SP High-Modulus, METYX Composites®, Camelyaf, 3A Composites, Alan Harper Composites, ACC Silicones, Richmond Aerovac, Fibertex, Westech, RST-5, Total Seal, Eurovacuum, Brianza Plastica, Safas Corporation, and FRP Accessories.

Of particular interest to FRP boat builders on the stand this year will be Scott Bader's new marine approved advanced D-Iso/NPG gelcoat Crystic® Permabright; the comparative technical results obtained clearly shows that Scott Bader has developed a step change technology gelcoat which significantly outperforms established Iso/NPG and Iso gelcoat technologies. Other high performance Crystic products which will be on display on the Resintex Technology stand includes the range of Crestabond MMA primerless structural adhesives alongside the established RINA certified Crestomer adhesives, marine approved Crystic infusion resins and the new Crestapol® 1250LV high performance resin. They will also be showing the Crystic matched tooling system and Crystic Fireguard 75PA Excel top coat for critical fire protection areas on a vessel, such as in engine compartments.

Resintex Technology will also be promoting the techniques and benefits of using closed mould production technologies, such as reusable membrane infusion moulding (RMIM). During Seatec 2012, there will be regular live demonstrations on their stand by Alan Harper Composites of the reusable silicone membrane fiRST® Technology system, suitable for infusion and prepreg moulding. Resintex Technology continues to be very active in helping boatbuilders apply closed mould technology to improve their production and help the environment.

The Activ-e 'zero emissions' all electric 10 metre open top passenger boat, constructed in fibreglass, is a successful new 'green' project in Italy. Resintex Technology supplies all the materials, technical support and the silicone membrane system for the Activ-e vessel which is now in production; vacuum infusion is used to fabricate the composite hull and interior sections. During the development stages, Resintex Technology worked in close collaboration with the Activ-e project team: Anselmo Mauri Costruzioni Nautiche (shipyard), h3o and Paolo Portinari (project and naval architecture), AM Project Management (project management), Navyonica (electronic and electrical assistance).

For the first time at Seatec 2012, Resintex Technology will also be promoting new glass and carbon reinforcement materials. They have now secured distribution agreements with METYX Composites for their glass and carbon fabrics, as well as METYCORE and METYCORE MAX ranges. They have also secured a distribution agreement with Camelyaf for their glass chopped strand mats and woven rovings.
