Material solutions being promoted on the Scott Bader stand this year include: high performance polyester, vinyl ester and acrylic thermoset resins with compatible glass, carbon and aramid fibre reinforcements; Bonding Pastes, Crestomer® and Crestabond® structural adhesives for bonding metals, plastic and composite substrates. A new ‘zero styrene’ gelcoat will officially be launched at JEC. This latest gelcoat technology innovation, developed by Scott Bader’s R & D team, is already specified by a leading global wind turbine blade producer. It offers FRP molders interested in the very lowest shop floor emissions possible, an even better alternative to Scott Bader’s existing Crystic Ecogel® ‘ultra-low styrene’ gelcoat range, which was launched at JEC, Paris back in 2013.

Forum Presentations


Scott Bader is also giving open forum presentations during the first two days of the show.

As the impact of the European harmonized FST standards for Rail (EN45545) and Building & Construction (EN13501) increases on the whole Composites value chain, this presentation will provide a summary overview of European FST specifications in rail and building & construction, technically highlighting the Scott Bader resin and gelcoat systems developed to achieve these specifications, and include case study examples of successful global applications

  • On Wednesday 15 March at 13.30hrs, Malcolm Forsyth - Director, Global Strategy will speak about: Sustainable Development in the Composites industry - how a resin supplier like Scott Bader can make a major contribution. The presentation will examine the contribution of resin suppliers to making the use of composite materials more sustainable across the whole value chain from raw materials to “end of life” and the areas where a wider industry co-operation is needed, as well as highlighting a number of product and process initiatives that Scott Bader is already making towards improving sustainability within composites

Other products and services being promoted on the Scott Bader stand during JEC World 2017 includes: the full range of FST (Fire, Smoke, and Toxicity) filled resin and gelcoat FRP laminate systems options for hand lay-up, infused and pultruded parts, with all the fire standards passed and independent test certifications gained for a variety of rail, land transportation, marine and building applications; an expanded ‘GelTint’ volumetric gelcoat color tinting service with more locally approved suppliers for European customers; a wider network of national and regional distributors which import and locally supply Scott Bader products around the world.
