Sicomin reveals new bio foaming epoxy

ENATA Foiler. © SicominSicomin, a leading manufacturer of advanced epoxy systems, will exhibit at a number of composites and marine trade shows this autumn, introducing new epoxy systems and marine collaborations. The company presented its latest developments at Advnaced Engineering last week and will exhibit at the upcoming Composites Europe in Stuttgart this week and at Mets in Amsterdam, later this month.

Sicomin will launch its new bio foaming epoxy, PB 360 GS, the fifth product in the GreenPoxy offering, making Sicomin’s one of the largest ranges of bio-based epoxies on the market.

New bio foaming epoxy

Allowing the ‘in situ’ production of a shaped low-density epoxy foam core, the two-part system with 37% bio-based carbon content is designed to offer good adhesion to a variety of materials and low water absorption. It is particularly suited to foam cored components with lightweight glass, carbon or natural fibre laminates, for example for sporting goods, paddles and surfboards with complex shaped cores, the company reports.

Sicomin’s GreenPoxy bio-based epoxy systems have created a wide following and are used in a variety of markets such as marine structures, water and winter board sports, construction and electric vehicles. Earlier this year, the brand was awarded industry accreditation, including the USDA Certified Bio-based Product Label and Sustainable Surf’s Ecoboard Gold Label.

Showcasing collaborations

In addition to new product launches, Sicomin will showcase collaborations with several shipyards, including France-based H2X and UAE-based ENATA. ENATA (UAE) has developed the Foiler, a carbon/epoxy motor yacht that delivers the comfort of a superyacht along with the performance and handling of a supercar. With a unique hydro-foiling system the Foiler can fly 1.5m above the water.

H2X (La Ciotat, France) a long-standing customer of Sicomin, has developed the DriX. A new, internationally patented eight-metre autonomous surface vessel. Made entirely out of composites, DriX has proven offshore navigation capabilities and a top-speed that is unique in its category, taking the AUSV role several steps further.

Sicomin will also showcase its growing portfolio of best-selling epoxy systems and advanced composites materials including: top clear; fire retardant systems; foaming systems; high performance multiaxial reinforcements and non-crimp fabrics; and structural cores.
