Gurit is launching the newly developed Balsaflex Lite product with a coating system that is capable of reducing the resin uptake in infusion processes by up to 50% for rigid panels and by up to 40% for flexible balsa wood sheets. Thereby, customers are able to save cost through reduced resin absorption and achieve overall weight saving in the blade.
Combined with Gurit`s Kerdyn Green PET foam, manufactured from 100% recycled (post-consumer) PET materials, Gurit Balsaflex Lite can be used for products in the wind energy industry. Gurit Balsaflex Lite samples are available as of now for Europe and North America. The coating system will be launched to the Asian-Pacific market in the second half of 2018.
Gurit is also launching Ampreg 30, a new low toxicity epoxy laminating system for the manufacture of large composite structures in the marine, wind and construction industries. The new laminating system has been reformulated to prioritise user health and safety of hand lay-up and vacuum bagging production techniques through the careful selection of chemicals and the development of Light Reflective Technology (LRT) as a risk monitoring feature for the user. Gurit Ampreg 30 is available as of now globally.
