Independent laboratory tests have proven that Crystic Ecogel S1PA can cut total styrene emissions by over 55%, compared to using a standard technology polyester spray gelcoat when sprayed using extraction equipment with an air flow rate of 5000m3/hr. This new low-styrene gelcoat technology will be explained in a JEC open forum technical presentation at 3pm on March 13th. 

Key features: Very low VOC emissions in both dynamic (airless spray) and static (gelation) phases; spray application using the same techniques and equipment as standard gelcoats; cures with a standard MEKP catalyst; excellent adhesion to UP and VE resins; good UV resistance, suitable for external applications; and, high long-term gloss finish.

Key customers have trialled Ecogel, including LM Wind Power, who now uses Scott Bader’s ultra-low styrene gelcoat product in its plants globally after it met their demanding in-house HSE standards. LM saw major reductions of more than 50% in styrene emissions during spray gelcoat application, without any loss of performance. According to LM Wind Power, the ultra-low styrene Ecogel gelcoat has enabled them to greatly improve the environment for their workers.
