Sicomin, a supplier of epoxy solutions, has joined forces with snowboard manufacturer Nidecker to produce Nidecker’s first bio-based snowboard.

The Nidecker prototype uses Sicomin’s GreenPoxy 56 bio based epoxy, which has over 50% of carbon content derived from plant and vegetable origin. Tested in accordance with ASTM D6866, GreenPoxy 56 has the highest green carbon epoxy resin content on the market, Sicomin says.

The board is constructed using a conventional compression moulding hot press.
