JEC Europe 2015 - Sicomin will present a range of foaming and clear systems for automotive secondary structures and a selection of accredited fire-retardant products for the rail and aerospace markets.

Foaming epoxies – developed for the manufacture of challenging geometric laminates – are suitable for the production of strong, high-quality structural parts that are too expensive or complex to create using a rigid foam or honeycomb core.

TOP Clear – a lightweight clear resin system designed for the manufacture of laminates with a translucent finish – is ideal for the production of clear carbon parts. TOP Clear provides high mechanical performance with superior UV stability.

Accredited fire-retardant products for rail and aerospace are already used extensively by many aerospace OEMs. Sicomin’s position as a leading supplier to the German rail market now gathers pace with SR1124 receiving a DB certification.

The SR1124 fire-retardant epoxy resin offers exceptional fire resistance as required for automotive, rail, aerospace and construction applications. Designed for hand laminating and filament winding, it is optimised to ensure halogen-free and flame-retardant properties with low smoke opacity and toxicity levels.

The SR1526 fire-retardant resin for prepregs is a two-component epoxy system suited to in-house prepregging due to its ideal viscosity and range of combination hardeners. SR1526 has numerous accreditations for aerospace interiors and is suitable for rail applications.
