Scott Bader North America promoting adhesives and advanced composites at CAMX 2018

Scott Bader North America are exhibiting at CAMX 2018 in Dallas from October 16 – 18.  The Scott Bader team is looking forward to welcoming visitors to Booth Q47 to discuss innovations in adhesives, resins, gelcoats and matched tooling systems.  Scott Bader has decades of experience helping a variety of organisations; from land transportation and marine through to construction and wind energy with all aspects of their composite part fabrication.

A particular focus at CAMX 2018 will be on showcasing Scott Bader’s Polyester, Vinyl Ester and Hybrid bonding pastes under the new Crestafix® brand name. Scott Bader bonding pastes are used in a wide range of applications and markets offering customers a choice of densities, gel times, color change, low shrinkage and ease of application. Conscious that customers want the right solution for their needs, a new Crestafix sampling kit has been developed to offer customers the opportunity to sample and compare their chosen Crestafix options.

The Crestapol® range of high performance urethane acrylate resins will also be a key product focus at CAMX 2018 with particular emphasis on the fire retardant (FR) properties of filled Crestapol resins and Crystic® FR gelcoats and intumescent topcoats. Crestapol resins can be processed by open molding, infusion, RTM and pultrusion, even when heavily ATH filled (up to 200phr).  With this in mind, a technical paper will be given as part of the conference by JP Schroeder, North American FST Market Development Manager, on October 18th at 8am during ‘Clear Fork’ titled: “A review of closed mold processing of highly filled ATH systems for FST applications namely vacuum infusion and RTM.’  The presentation will review key aspects of filler and resin selection as well as best practices in the lab and on the production floor to ensure successful application. Particular focus will highlight infusion and looking at solutions to offer more flexibility to the moulder with a higher degree of confidence that the required FST specifications are met. Customer case studies will illustrate the different types of parts and processes that have used this approach across a range of end use requirements.

 Representatives from the Scott Bader technical and commercial team will be available at Booth Q47 to answer questions about our high performance products available for advanced composite applications.
