Sicomin plans to showcase a range of its industrial materials for the automotive, wind energy, civil engineering and marine industries at JEC World 2020, taking place from 3–5 March 2020, in Paris, France.

This includes a new bio fire retardant epoxy gelcoat for wind energy and infrastructure. SGi 128 is an epoxy gelcoat that suitable for fire retardant coating applications in the wind energy and civil engineering markets, the company said. It is produced with 38% of carbon content from non-oil sources and is a halogen free gelcoat that provides improved fire protection for epoxy laminates and low smoke toxicity. It is available with both fast and slow hardeners in industrial volumes with short lead times and has been successfully tested to EN 13501 (EUROCLASS B-S1-d0) and ASTM E84 (Class A).

Sicomin has also developed a bio resin for high pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) processing. SR GreenPoxy 28 is a fast cycle, low toxicity, bio-based formulation suitable for automotive structural parts and carbon fiber components. The new formulation has been improved for faster production cycle times and better mechanical performance and is a suitable alternative to traditional resins, the company said.
