As the Automotive industry focuses on more sustainable manufacturing, Sicomin has announced a replacement for petroleum based materials with the launch of its new bio-based epoxy resin aimed specifically for HP-RTM processing techniques.
Certified by Veritas, SR GreenPoxy 28 is a fast cycle, low toxicity, third generation bio-based formulation aimed specifically at the HP-RTM moulding processes used for both high performance structural parts and aesthetic carbon fibre components. The new formulation has been optimised for fast production cycle times and superior mechanical performance.
SR GreenPoxy 28 can be fully cured using a 2-minute cure cycle at 140˚C, producing an onset Tg of 147˚C, as well as exceptional mechanical properties under both dry and hot/wet test conditions.
Philippe Marcovich, President, Sicomin comments, “More and more manufacturers and suppliers are betting on bio-based alternatives derived from renewable raw materials. The latest addition to our GreenPoxy range, SR GreenPoxy 28, is an exciting alternative to traditional resins providing exceptional performance and quality for high volume programmes.”
