Resins for Shrinkage control in Bulk and Sheet Mould Compound

During the manufacture of components made from BMC and SMC, a key challenge is controlling shrinkage of the moulded part to ensure a high quality smooth surface is a achieved, whilst maintaining high dimensional stability.  Allnex’ CRYLCOAT® 9209-0 can be formulated into Low Shrink Additives to significantly reduce the shrinkage of BMC and SMC.  Bulk Mould Compound and Sheet Mould Compound are materials which find their way into a wide range of end uses, from small household appliances requiring thermal stability such as irons to light weight automotive and truck parts.

High Performance Gelcoats and Flowcoats

Gelcoats and flowcoats play an important part in composite manufacturing. They act as the protective barrier between the laminate and the environment. Gelcoats provide the cosmetic finish in moulded applications while flowcoats are the last layer in non-mould applications. At allnex we offer a vast array of neutral and pigmented AQUAGUARD, NUTECH, VIAPAL™, FIBRETECH™ gelcoats and flowcoats suitable for a wide range of technical and general purpose applications. 

  • UV Resistance
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Weather Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance

General Purpose Laminating Resins

Our general purpose laminating resin range of POLYPLEX and VIAPAL products is designed for universal hand lay-up and spray up applications. These resins have very good mechanical properties and show excellent glass fibre wet out and cure performance. The products are pre-promoted, medium reactivity, thixotropic resins available in un-waxed and low styrene forms. 

  • Low viscosity
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Good cure performance
