16th September 2015, Marseille, France (Hall 3, Stand F08) – Sicomin, is introducing an exceptional new fire retardant epoxy system formulated specifically for infusion technologies, SR 1125.

This advanced self-extinguishing product is unique to the composites market as it can be processed by an infusion method unlike many fire retardant epoxies that must be applied through hand lamination.

SR 1125 features a very low viscosity which ensures a steady, predictable and consistent resin flow. Thanks to this unique formulation, SR 1125 can pass through reinforcement fabrics without filtering the active fire retardant materials nor obstructing the infusion process.

SR 1125 has been developed by Sicomin predominately for large part production in the civil construction and rail markets where very high quality components, fire resistance and excellent mechanical properties are essential.

As infusion processing methods are not suitable for every customer’s requirements, Sicomin is also launching SR 1124 - a fire retardant hand laminating epoxy that also offers very low viscosity and excellent wet out properties.

Both SR 1125 infusion and SR 1124 hand laminating systems have achieved the ASTM E84 Class A fire safety accreditation when used in combination with Sicomin’ s SC FW16 paint or SGi 128 epoxy gel-coat.

Sicomin will be showcasing these fire retardant epoxy systems at Composites Europe 2015 from the 22nd – 24th September in Stuttgart. Please visit the team to discover how these products can dramatically improve component quality and provide supreme fire resistance.
