Gurit will demonstrate its commitment to sustainability at METSTRADE with the launch of AMPRO, a new multi-purpose epoxy system.

AMPRO BIO is an all-purpose epoxy which can be used for gluing, coating, laminating and filling and is built on SP 106 which has been the primary epoxy system for the manufacture and repair of wooden boats for more than 20 years.

Gurit will also be highlighting its partnership with Bcomp with the ampliTex and powerRibs ranges of technical flax fibre reinforcements. powerRibs is a lightweight, high performance natural fibre composite reinforcement grid which provides maximum stiffness at minimum weight by creating a 3D structure on one side of a thin-walled shell element.

Carbon footprint

Combined with ampliTex technical fabrics, the fibre layup can match the performance of carbon fibres in semi-structural parts, whilst reducing the carbon footprint.

The company will also be illustrating its Corecell M foam and members of its composite engineering team will be present to discuss their capabilities for developing structural composites concepts.

Gurit will be exhibiting on Stand CMP.40.EL and hosting live demonstrations on the Construction in Process Stage daily from 2pm.
