Gurit (Isle of Wight) has launched a new range of G-PET structural foam targeted toward the global wind turbine blade manufacturing and marine markets. The new range offers class-leading shear elongation, finer cell size, good chemical resistance, good adhesion and high process temperature resistance. The new G-PET range is available in four new densities: 80, 90, 110 and 135 kg/m3, with other densities available upon request. It comes with varying finishing styles, including plain, pin hole, contour scrim, double cut and vacuum infusion core. Knife cuts are available to minimize resin uptake during infusion. The product is available in standard sheets and tailored kits.
