JEC Europe 2015 - Umicore introduces ECOS ND15, an innovative cobalt-based technology developed at the company’s R&D facilities that offers easy drop-in replacement for traditional accelerators based on cobalt carboxylates.
ECOS ND15 is a sustainable alternative curing technology for unsaturated polyester resins and gelcoats. ECOS ND15 is a cobalt-containing polymer. Though polymers are not subject to REACH registration, a full toxicological study has been carried out by an independent institute that has shown that ECOS ND15 is a non-hazardous substance for all endpoints tested. Produced at Umicore’s factory in Bruges, Belgium, ECOS ND15 allows polyester and gelcoat producers to substitute their toxic accelerators by a harmless substance, on a one-to-one basis, without the need to adapt anything else in their formulations. ECOS ND25 is a newer cobalt-based polymer developed by Umicore for special transparent resins.More information: www.usmb.beBooth: F8
