Sicomin Launch New FireGreen 37 Fire Retardant Bio-Epoxy Laminating Resin System
Sicomin, the leading formulator and supplier of bio-based epoxy resin systems and fire retardant (FR) epoxy solutions is proud to announce the launch of its new SR FireGreen 37 FR hand laminating resin. This latest addition to the market leading GreenPoxy™ range of bio-epoxies combines exceptional fire performance with a more sustainable formulation, featuring 25% plant-based carbon content.
SR FireGreen 37 is an intumescent epoxy resin system optimized for hand laminating processes and is available with a range of hardeners to adjust cure times in manufacturing. FireGreen 37 features a halogen free chemistry resulting in very low smoke opacity and toxicity in a fire scenario.
Sicomin’s new resin system is suitable for small to very large components, with target applications in the transport, architecture and civil engineering sectors. ASTM E84 Class A classifications have already been achieved with additional fire testing, including EN 13-501 and EN 45-545, currently underway.
“We are thrilled to bring our new FireGreen 37 to the market, combining our strengths in fire performance and bio-based epoxies in a single more sustainable product,” comments Philippe Marcovich, President, Sicomin. “There are now nine products in the GreenPoxy range of bio-based epoxies providing solutions for Infusion, RTM, Casting, Laminating, Gelcoating and Foaming epoxy processes. We really do have all the bases covered.”
