Sicomin secures bio resin contract with Cobra International

Sicomin has secured a significant bio resin supply arrangement with Cobra International. Both companies have worked in partnership very successfully for over 25 years and Cobra is the principal OEM for windsurf, surfboard and stand up paddle boards for leading brands including; Starboard, Fanatic, JP Australia, Surftech and NSP.

According to the manufacturer, Sicomin’s substantial investment at its south of France facility to support the industrial supply of bio resins has allowed Cobra to make an easy transition from traditional petrochemical based epoxies to GreenPoxy for the production of many water sports products.

“We are proud of our decision to move towards bio based products. The composites industry must promote sustainability to support a greener future for everyone. Sicomin has been integral in our shift to bio products and there have been no compromises in mechanical performance and minimal difference in cost,” commented Danu Chotikapanich, Cobra’s CEO.

New product launch

Following the launch of Sicomin’s bio resin range, the company has established itself as a leading formulator and supplier of bio epoxy systems in industrial quantities. Sicomin’s GreenPoxy products are widely used in a variety of markets such as marine structures, leisure and winter board sports and electric vehicles.

The latest addition to the range, the InfuGreen 810 infusion system, has recently been awarded DNV GL certification and will be officially launched at JEC World, which takes place from 14-16 March in Paris.
