Our range of filler, powders and additives are ideal for modifying the properties of many different types of resin including polyurethane casting resin, polyester resin and gel coat and epoxy resin.

During composite lamination, a catalyst or hardener is required to activate the resin used in creating your finished part. In this case, a resin additive is a necessary element in the lamination process. For that reason, fabricators use resin additives for the unique characteristics they bring to the lamination process.

We include in this section a good range of solvents, solvent replacement systems, pigments...

    Surfasolve ®

    In this section we highlight this acetone substitute called Surfasolve Tool Cleaner, which is a specially formulated non-hazardous, non-flammable solvent replacement system made from organic sources that is worker safe, and easy to use. Surfasolve Tool cleaner is used with our non-mechanical, non-heated workstation to quickly clean rollers and tools during lamination or as a gun flush for resin equipment. Cleaning is simple and efficient, there is no need to dry or blow off tools after using Surfasolve Tool cleaner. Surfasolve Tool Cleaner has been fully evaluated on its effect in resin curing with little to no degradation in quantities as high as 10% of the resin. Residue from rollers will not cause resin to stop curing like most solvent replacements. Surfasolve Tool Cleaner will continue to work even with a high level of resin load. Resin will continue to cure in the workstation and later on fall to the bottom as a floc. This material can be easily recovered through a simple drum filter as a solid non hazardous waste separated from the liquid Tool Cleaner. This process creates no hazardous waste and will greatly reduce costs associated with solvents such as acetone.

  • Peroxide catalysts

    In the field of thermosetting resins with monomer (unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester and urethane-acrylate resins) the peroxide is a substance added to resins or gel coats in controlled quantities to cause gelation and crosslinking. The catalyst reacts with the accelerator, thereby creating free radicals that, in turn, initiate polymerization. 

    The most comon of all is the MEKP (methyl ethyl ketone peroxide), although there are many others:dibenzoyl peroxide, cumyl,acetyl acetone, cyclohexanone, etc. 

  • Mineral & Plastic...

    Relatively inert solids, (organic or inorganic) compounds, which are added to the resin or gel coat for specific flow characteristics or to increase the volume and reduce the product cost.

  • Pigments / Dyes

    Wide range of pigment pastes specially designed for the pigmentation of polyester, vinyl ester, uretane-acrylic and epoxy laminating and casting resins and  gel / topcoats. They can be used perfectly for the pigmentation of epoxy systems, although trials should always been carried out to check perfomance.
