VELOX GmbH, a European distributor of speciality materials for the plastics, composites, additives and paints and coatings industries, is working with AEC Polymers to develop new solutions for the marine sector. VELOX distributes industrial adhesives in Europe, including the SAF range of structural adhesives.

Recently, VELOX and AEC Polymers enabled the construction of FeliX, a recently-launched catamaran. This new ship is designed to conduct oceanographic and hydrographic missions. The total construction process took only 11 months as a result of the internal knowledge and resources of all parties.

‘We are proud to offer the SAF range as the solutions demonstrate excellent resistance and durability in harsh conditions whilst being safe for users and the environment,’ said Pascal Dubois, advanced composites business development manager at VELOX. ‘Through its very high mechanical properties and high elongation at break, the use of SAF30 LOT (Long Open Time), can significantly improve productivity in workshops by reducing labour costs and avoiding local laminating processes.’
