Sicomin’s bio resin GreenPoxy33 is being used for the manufacture of French ski manufacturer ZAG's extra light touring ski range. ZAG had previously selected SR8500 advanced, multi-purpose epoxy (Germanischer Lloyds and Lloyds Registry approved) to produce the touring range with good results. However, to increase their sustainable production practices, ZAG switched to GreenPoxy33.

Part of Sicomin’s range of bio based chemistries, the GreenPoxy 33 is a clear system formulated especially for compression molding techniques. All the GreenPoxy products are certified by the American BETA laboratory and French CNRS and tested in accordance with Carbon 14 measurements (ASTM D6866 or XP CEN/TS 16640).

The ZAG team has enjoyed trialing the new touring GreenPoxy skis in a variety of glacier, powder, hard pack and melting snow conditions. All reports have indicated the skis responded extremely well delivering the same performance and strength as previous SR8500 versions.

“Our motivating factors have always been and indeed remain the same - to produce powerful and exceptional products that are as light, strong and robust as possible. Many of our customers are seeking the most eco-friendly products available and Sicomin’s GreenPoxy technology delivers supreme mechanical performance whilst enabling sustainable manufacturing practices,” says Bastien Saillard, R&D Director at ZAG.
