Dragonkraft’s epoxy resin system boasts 100% renewable carbon content whilst its hardener/booster package contains 20% renewable matter.

Dragonkraft also offers a 97% renewable UV cure system which sets within 15-30 minutes in natural daylight.

The Dragonkraft package is BPA (Bisphenol A) free.

Dragonkraft reports that the formulation can be used for many applications and the curing speed can be adjusted to suit user requirements. The system is said to produce a high strength flexible cured resin with a non-brittle finish. It is also reported to have excellent wet out and self-leveling properties, with low shrinkage and high temperature resistance. It adheres to many surfaces including wood, plastics, metals and fibreglass, making it a good alternative to two-pack epoxy adhesives. When compared to traditional resins it shows equivalent resistance to a number of common chemicals.

“From the beginning, our goal has been to employ bio-derived technologies that can replace existing oil-based resins and surpass performance in areas such as health, safety and environment," says Jim Pickett, Commercial Director at Dragonkraft.

"Dragonkraft has seen a growing interest for bio-resins and now they are competitive in not only price but performance too.”
