As the automotive industry focuses on more sustainable manufacturing, Sicomin, the leading supplier of eco-resins, 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.
SR GreenPoxy 28 is the sixth product to be added to Sicomin’s renowned GreenPoxy range and is available with immediate effect in the industrial quantities typically required by Automotive OEM’s.
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 optimized for fast production cycle times and superior mechanical performance.
SR GreenPoxy 28 can be fully cured using a 2-minute cure cycle at 140oC, producing an onset Tg of 147oC, as well as exceptional mechanical properties under both dry and hot/wet test conditions.
As Philippe Marcovich, President, Sicomin commented, 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.”
