Scott Bader showcases structural materials expertise at JEC World 2024

Global chemistry business, Scott Bader, is putting a spotlight on how its innovative polymer solutions for structural materials are aiding advancements in construction and land transport at JEC Composites World this March.

The company will be featuring parts of a roofing structure and commuter train on its stand to highlight the benefits of its existing portfolio. Exciting new developments are also in the pipeline for these and other key sectors including renewables and mobility.

“Construction and land transport are two important areas for us as we leverage our composites expertise to support industry goals of reducing environmental impact,” says Scott Bader’s Group Business Director, Kim Gingras. “We’re working with our customers and partners to devise formulations that can help achieve the lightweighting of components, in addition to exploring bio-derived compositions to reduce the reliance on fossil fuel stocks.”

The roofing structure puts a spotlight on Scott Bader’s scope in both renewables and construction with a range of solar panels installed using the company’s flagship Crestabond® structural adhesive. Crestabond harnesses a superior bond and much simplified installation process for fitting traditional and flexible solar panels. The resulting technology significantly reduces the installation time, can survive a category five hurricane and is suitable for a much wider range of surfaces and roofing materials.

For rail, Scott Bader is showcasing its Crestafire® HL3 system. Encompassing resins, gelcoats and structural adhesives to enable the world’s rolling stock to meet the highest standards of fire safety, Scott Bader’s range offers a complete solution for manufacturers and operators. Proven to help limit the spread of fire, smoke and toxic fumes, these intelligent technologies are certified to EN45545-2 HL2/HL3 and NFPA130 standards and are used widely to deliver durable interior and exterior components.
