Crestapol 1212 is a new thermoset pultrusion resin from Scott Bader Co. Ltd. (Northamptonshire, U.K.) for the manufacture of profiles for building, land transportation and other industrial applications. The low viscosity of the resin makes it possible to achieve filler loadings of up to 200 phr of aluminium trihydrate (ATH) fire retardant, to make profiles that must pass stringent fire, smoke and toxic fume test standards. It is a tough, low-viscosity resin, suitable for wet bath and injection applications. It allows enables high filler loadings (up to 2:1 filler:resin loading) and rapid wet out of reinforcement fibers. For demanding fire retardant applications, pultruded profiles can be made that achieve the highest fire, smoke and toxic fume ( FST) Epiradiateur test standards (NFF16-101; NFP92-501-M1,F0).
