AkzoNobel (Amersfoort, The Netherlands, and Chicago, Ill.) reported at JEC Europe 2013 that it has extended its portfolio of cobalt-free curing solutions with the launch of its second-generation Nouryact accelerators. Based primarily on iron, the new “eco-premium” accelerators are said to work in a wide range of temperatures and have a low impact on the color of end-use products. They also boast easy replacement for existing cobalt-based accelerators and, in some cases, have been shown to outperform cobalt, enabling curing behavior that is not achievable by conventional systems. All Nouryact accelerators are 100 percent cobalt-free. The BlueCure umbrella brand is an initiative of AkzoNobel and DSM Composite Resins (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) that covers innovative cobalt-free curing technologies and products. The products are available to all resin and component manufacturers in the composites industry.
