Chem-Trend focuses on sustainable release agents at JEC

Chem-Trend, will present the latest generation of its release agents for the composite industry at JEC World in Paris from March 5-7 this year. The company will focus on ecologically sustainable solutions at the global composites trade fair.

Many release agents of its Chemlease and Zyvax brands are characterised by qualities such as water-based and PFAS-free. The solutions are free of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) and the latest generation, underscores Chem-Trend's commitment to ecologically sustainable technologies.

Chem-Trend has also been awarded the EcoVadis Gold rating in 2023, which is a testament to the company’s dedication to sustainability and corporate responsibility.

The technological shift away from solvent-based to water-based release agents in the shaping of composite materials is an important contribution for the industry to reduce its own ecological CO2 footprint. The water-based release agent solutions of the Chem-Trend brands Zyvax and Chemlease support the user on this path and offer uncompromising performance for efficient and smooth production processes.

“Given the urgent need to develop ecologically sustainable solutions for the composite materials industry, we are very excited to present our commitment to this area at JEC World 2024", says Daniel Brambeer, field sales manager composite DACH and Italy at Chem-Trend. “Our PFAS-free release agents underscore our innovative strength as well as our efforts to minimise negative impacts on the environment without compromising on performance.”

Chem-Trend sees enormous potential in terms of sustainability in wind energy as the production process, especially of rotor blades for wind turbines, is associated with ecological challenges.

Expensive raw materials and complex, differentiated shaping processes are used in the production of large components. How Chem-Trend specifically supports the optimisation of these processes, both in terms of efficiency and sustainability, will be one of the significant topics at the Paris event.

Visitors can obtain all the information about Chem-Trend’s portfolio of innovative release agent solutions in Hall 5, stand M03 at the show.
