JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2013 - AkzoNobel will launch its second-generation Nouryact accelerators, thereby extending its portfolio of cobalt-free curing solutions.
Driven by the recent reclassification of cobalt-2-ethylhexanoate as reprotoxic CMR cat. 2, and anticipating further pressure on cobalt substances, the company has further extended its range of cobalt alternatives. The new eco-premium accelerators are based on BluCure TM technology, and 100% cobalt-free.Primarily based on iron, the new Nouryact TM accelerators work in all temperature ranges and have a lower colour impact on the end products. They are a smooth and easy-to-use replacement for existing cobalt-based accelerators and in some cases even outperform cobalt, enabling a curing behaviour that cannot be achieved with conventional systems.End users can now select from six different Nouryact TM accelerators that can be combined with a full range of peroxide curing agents, offering a cobalt-free curing system for virtually every application. For resin producers and formulators, AkzoNobel offers innovative raw materials, such as Borchi® OXY Cure, and access to the BluCure TM technology. This enables them to formulate cobalt-free resins for the composite industry.More information on the new developments will be presented during AkzoNobel’s lecture at the JEC on Wednesday March 13 at 2:30 pm in the Agora room.Photo: The Pastoe Low Chair 03 (designed by Maarten Van Severen and Fabian Schwaerzler for Pastoe) is manufactured by NPSP Composieten BV using AkzoNobel’s Nouryact cobalt-free accelerators More information:www.nouryact.comBooth F17
