Gurit Expands Award-Winning Line of Ampreg™ Wet Laminating Products

Zurich, Switzerland, November 13, 2018–Advanced composites specialistGurit today announced market launch of Ampreg™ 31 and Ampreg™ 36 resins and ancillaries. The new products complement Ampreg™ 30 which has been recognized with the 2018 Composites UK Innovation in Materials Award.

Just as Ampreg™ 30, the new Ampreg™ resins & ancillaries prioritize user health and safety. Featuring a robust resin matrix, they enable excellent mechanical and thermal properties of laminates for the manufacture of large composite structures in the marine, wind and construction industries.

Ampreg™ 31 and Ampreg™ 36 come with LRT Light Reflective Technology as standard addition to the resin matrix for easy inspection of workwear, equipment and workspace for potential resin contamination by means of standard UV lamps.

The new Ampreg™ resins use the same Ampreg™ 30 hardeners, all applying the same simple mix ratio and the ability to blend hardeners to achieve a range of intermediate working times.

The new products will be featured alongside Gurit`s range of well-known and trusted materials for the marine industry at METSTRADE 2018, November 13 to 15 at the RAI in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Construction Material Pavilion, at the Gurit stand CMP.42.EL.
