Additive that reduces the thermosetting plastics gelling and polymerisation time, such as gel coats and polyester resins. Also called promoter or activator.
In the production of GRP parts, this solvent is mainly used to remove unhardened resin stains from equipment and personnel clothing. HIGHLY FLAMMABLE LIQUID
aromatic polyamide fibres, the most widely used of which are Dupont Kevlar fibres.
Diagram showing the warp and weft yarns interlacing in a woven reinforcement. Several types of reinforcement are distinguished: unidirectional, taffeta weave, satin, twill, etc.
In this document you will find the most suitable polyester or vinylester resin for a multitude of applications where chemical resistance is one of the key factors for the application.
We have an extensive range of resins available for applications with resistance to most acids, alkalis, alcohols, hydrocarbons, etc.
This document explains step by step how to make a composite mould with glass fibre reinforcement and low shrinkage polyester and vinylester resins.
This kind of moulds will be used to manufacture composite parts for a multitude of applications. In particular, this is the technique used to manufacture most of the moulds for the construction of sports boats, automotive parts, GRP furniture, etc.
An excellent handbook on composite materials, which serves as an excellent introduction to the composites industry. With this manual, written in English, you will learn the basics of the most commonly used thermosetting resins in the industry, reinforcing materials, as well as part and mould construction techniques.
It is a great tool for acquiring the knowledge that any professional or amateur must have in order to be able to carry out a multitude of works with these materials.
In this document you will find a composite parts manufacturing guide by infusion/vacuum technique using polyester resin and multi-axial glass fibres.
This document includes all Scott Bader products, that we distribute in Spain.
In this technical guide you will understand how to achieve a durable and effective bonding of bulkheads using high performance urethane-acrylate adhesive, Crestomer 1152PA.
This adhesive stands out for its excellent adhesion to all types of substrates: metals, composites, wood, etc., as well as for its excellent elongation in wide temperature ranges.
The main properties of RTV-2 silicone rubbers are described in this document. Its consistency, reactivity, its properties after vulcanisation and its cross-linking system are analyzed in general.
You will find safety and hygiene neccesary requirements for these products use and storage advice. The kind of equipment recommended for working with these silicones, preparation of the components, dosing and mixing, deaeration of the mass, application, processing and vulcanisation times, etc. are discussed.
In this document you will find the latest Scott Bader products success stories in applications for some of our customers.
The success stories of our Crestabond and Crestomer adhesives and Crestapol urethane-acrylic flame retardant resins are particularly noteworthy.
These materials find application in a multitude of sectors, including the automotive, nautical, wind blade manufacture and repair, and capital goods industries.
