Bitrez, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of specialist polymers and chemicals is launching a family of flame retardant Benzoxazine thermoset resins called Curabox at Advanced Engineering 2018.

With high service temperatures and excellent mechanical and electrical properties, Curabox performs well over prolonged periods in difficult working environments. Its high-performance characteristics and endurance to mechanical and chemical attack, make it extremely suitable for the manufacture of long service composite components. Applications include primary and secondary structures for aerospace, or frames, body panels and structural reinforcements on trains, buses, trucks and cars.

Bitrez’s Curabox is the result of a Pan-European project - in partnership with a leading European materials research and development centre - to push the boundaries of Benzoxazine chemistry.

Dominic Hopwood, Bitrez’s composites resin sales manager, said: “We’re very excited to launch our new family of flame retardant Benzoxazine thermoset reins which will go under the trade name of Curabox. This is just the start of our Curabox story. We hope to be in a position, in the next 12 months, to add further grades to the Curabox family which will bring even more novel chemistry to composite applications! So, if you’re in the market for a high-performance resin system, come along to our stand at Advanced Engineering and have a chat about how we can help you.”

Visit Bitrez at stand T110 at the NEC Birmingham from the 31st October until the 1st November.
