New bio resin for RTM processing

Sicomin has launched a new bio-based epoxy resin designed for high pressure resin transfer molding (RTM) processing.

The company says that SR GreenPoxy 28, the sixth product to be added to the GreenPoxy range, can be used as a replacement for petroleum based material.

The resin is a fast cycle, low toxicity, third generation bio based formulation and is suitable for making structural parts and carbon fiber components.  It can be cured using a two-minute cure cycle at 140°C, producing an onset Tg of 147°C, as well as improvwed mechanical properties under both dry and hot/wet test conditions.
