Sicomin, a leading formulator and producer of advanced epoxy systems, has launched a new PIN flame retardant epoxy formulation, SR 1125, for infusion technologies for composite production.
The non-halogenated system offers low smoke opacity and low smoke toxicity and meets fire protection standards for construction, automotive and railway applications, including ASTM E84 Class A when used with epoxy gel-coat SGi 128. Very low viscosity ensures a steady and consistent resin flow, enabling to pass through reinforcement fabrics or other obstacles in composites. This facilitates the production of composite parts with high quality, fire resistance and performance mechanical properties. Sicomin has also launched SR 1124 which offers similar properties but with excellent wet-out, adapted also for hand-laminating and filament winding applications.
