In line with its commitment to work towards a more sustainable future, GRP Solutions, a highly experienced team of composite and adhesive experts, in collaboration with INEOS Composites, will be showcasing a new plastic waste reducing resin at this year’s Advanced Engineering Show.

The exhibition takes place from 30-31 October at the NEC, Birmingham, and is the UK's largest annual advanced manufacturing trade show that provides the opportunity to meet and network with OEMs and supply chain partners.

“We are delighted to be joining GRP Solutions to promote our new greener resin solution. You will also have the opportunity to hear our experts on 31 October present on composites and sustainability in the Composites Forum area,” said Philippe Agustin, Key Account Manager of INEOS Composites.

One of the key components of this innovative unsaturated polyester resin is recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate). For every 220kg drum produced, around 1,800 plastic bottles are diverted from landfills and our oceans. INEOS Composites PET resin is also said to offer to glass reinforced plastics manufacturers better overall performance than standard unsaturated polyester resins, at comparable cost levels.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for customers to meet leading professionals from our principle supplier, INEOS Composites, and find out about the plastic circular economy and making manufacturing processes greener. We are also excited to be showing our new sustainable solutions video at the exhibition,” commented Brian Harpur, Managing Director of GRP Solutions.

INEOS Composites manufactures and sells a broad range of general-purpose and high-performance grades of unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins, gelcoats and low-profile additives for the plastics industry. The products of INEOS Composites provide fabricated composite products with a range of functional properties including corrosion resistance, fire retardance, ultraviolet resistance, water and chemical resistance, high mechanical properties, thermal and electrical insulation, impact and scratch resistance and high strength-to-weight ratios.
