DSM launches new Beyone™ Cobalt-free resin series at JEC
The new Beyone 170, 177 and 185 resin series are based on Ortho, DCPD and Vinyl ester chemistries respectively. Resins are available for a broad range of applications with different levels of reactivity, and can be optimized for specific customer processes and requirements. The resins may also have LSE functionality for reducing the emission of styrene during resin processing.
Composite components manufactured with new Beyone 170, 177 and 185 resin series are strong and can be used in many structural applications in Marine, Building, Construction, and Industrial end-use markets.
“Because of their Cobalt-free nature, these new pre-accelerated Beyone™ resins are highly sustainable materials”, comments Ad de Koning, R&D Director of DSM Composite Resins. “Using these resins for your composite parts now, ensures that your manufacturing operation is future-proof for an eventual Cobalt Carboxylate reclassification, and avoids a costly and time-consuming product requalification down the road.”
“Since the introduction of the BluCure Technology, DSM has been at the forefront of the developing Cobalt-free resin systems”, adds Fons Harbers, Sales & Marketing Director of DSM Composite Resins. “Our continued commitment to sustainable innovation is a clear illustration of our leadership role in the Composites industry.”
