Infusing More Sustainable Vessels with GreenPoxy InfuGreen 810

As manufacturers drive to improve the sustainability of their processes and reduce the environmental impact of their end products, Sicomin has ramped up its supply of large volumes of GreenPoxy bio-based epoxies for the marine sector.

With 38% of its carbon content from plant based sources, Sicomin's GreenPoxy InfuGreen 810, has been formulated to provide a more sustainable vacuum infusion resin with uncompromising performance.

InfuGreen 810 was recently used for the infusion of the new Couach Fly 86/2600 Motor Yacht, one of the largest structures to be infused with bio-resins to date, and by far the largest yacht hull.

The DNV GL approved resin system was used to vacuum infuse the 26-metre, 52 tonne superyacht's hull, deck and superstructure producing a lighter, faster, more durable yacht, and reducing overall fuel consumption significantly.

Additional InfuGreen 810 projects include:

  • the hull, deck and internal structure of the Flax 27, an 8.2m classically styled daysailer designed by Judel/Vrolijk & Co
  • the new Floki 6.5m Racing Yacht built for the Mini Transat race
  • a novel carbon fibre A frame crane built for an oceanographic research vessel at the H2X Shipyard.
