Sicomin at Composites Europe: to Showcase its New Range of Epoxy Resins

Published on 2013-09-05. Author : SpecialChem

Marseille, France -- SICOMIN (4B41), a leading global formulator and manufacturer of high performance epoxy resins, will be participating at Composites Europe, Stuttgart from the 17th -19th September. In addition to an existing portfolio of high performance products, a range of fire retardant systems and liquid expanding epoxy foams will be a key focus at the show demonstrating how Sicomin's innovations are enhancing many applications.

Epoxy Foaming Systems: These 2 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. Customized solutions such as fire retardant, higher Tg, sprayable versions are also available.

Fire Retardant Systems This market leading range of epoxy systems were recently accredited with the ASTM E-84 Class A standard for the Civil Engineering industry and 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.

For more information on the products due to feature at Composites Europe 2013, please visit the SICOMIN Stand 4B41. Philippe Marcovich, President of SICOMIN, will also be available for interviews throughout the show.
