Epoxy specialist Sicomin has developed a bio foaming epoxy with 37% bio-based carbon content.

PB 360 GS, the fifth product in the GreenPoxy range, reportedly allows 'in situ' production of a shaped low-density epoxy foam core and offers good adhesion to a variety of materials and low water absorption. It is suitable for foam cored components with lightweight glass, carbon or natural fiber laminates, such as sporting goods, paddles and surfboards.

Sicomin’s GreenPoxy bio-based epoxy systems are used in a variety of markets such as marine structures, water and winter board sports, construction and electric vehicles.
