(PresseBox) ( Wattwil, )
27th March 2013, Gurit, a global innovator and developer of composite materials, engineering, tooling, parts and systems (SIX Swiss Exchange: GUR), will introduce its latest composite product and technology innovations to the Indian market at the International Conference and Exhibition for Reinforced Plastics (ICERP), Mumbai, from 4th-6th April 2013. Stand F4B.

Gurit established its Indian office in 2007, and Gurit (India) has since grown into a major supplier of composite solutions to the wind energy, defence and aerospace sectors across the country.

At ICERP 2013, Gurit will present itself to the wider composite market, and introduce its comprehensive range of products and technology to all market sectors, such as transportation, boatbuilding, sports goods and general industrial. Gurit products and services include glass, aramid and carbon fibre prepregs, a range of structural cores including CoreCell™, PVCell, G-PET™ and Balsaflex™, epoxy laminating resins and adhesives, tooling systems, as well as engineering and prototyping services.

The Gurit (India) team is led by Mr Prashant Kshirsagar, a veteran of the composites arena, with experience across a wide range of applications. This experience combined with Gurit’s complete composite solution provides composite manufacturers in India with the local supply and technical support they need to make their projects a success.

Mr Kshirsagar and his technical team will be available at the show to discuss your projects and composite requirements. Gurit will present a paper at the ICERP Conference, entitled "The use of composites in fire resistant-critical applications". Please refer to the ICERP website for more details about the date and time.

The latest products from Gurit include:

Long Shelf-Life Resin Technology which no longer requires chilled storage
Gurit’s latest break-through in prepreg resin technology extends the shelf-life of unchilled prepregs to over two months at temperatures of up to 35⁰C / 95⁰F, which are ideal to reduce transportation, storage and ambient temperature-control costs.

ILATECH™ Tooling Coat
ILATECH™ is a new surface coating for Gurit moulds, developed in conjunction with ILAG Industrielack AG, which creates a smooth, strong and durable surface, enhancing the life span of the mould, providing safe de-mould, and reducing manufacturing costs for Gurit’s customers.

CBS 200 Press Technology for finished carbon car body parts
CBS 200 is a new press process from Gurit, reducing the labour and time needed to manufacture high-performance Class A composite car body panels. With a curing time of under 10 minutes, the refined process allows for the manufacture up to 40,000 parts per year from a single tool set. The new product is thermally stable to over 200⁰C / 390⁰F, making the composite parts fully compatible with existing mass production painting and assembly methods.

G-PET™ is a highly adaptable, recyclable, thermoplastic foam with a good balance of mechanical properties, temperature resistance, density and cost. G-PET™LITE has an optimal surface finish for low resin uptake, with no degradation of adhesive properties; and G-PET™ FR has excellent fire, smoke and toxicity performance (DIN 5510-2, ASTM E1354, ASTM E662 and BSS7239).
