Sicomin (Châteauneuf les Martigues, France) announced Dec. 4 it has been awarded the Bureau Veritas Footprint Progress Certification for its GreenPoxy products range.

The certification applies to the following GreenProxy products:

  • GreenPoxy 56, a clear and waterproof epoxy system containing over 52% plant and vegetable content. It is reportedly suitable for laminating, injection molding, filament winding, press processes and casting.
  • GreenPoxy 33, a clear laminate with high mechanical properties, and containing over 35% plant content. It reportedly has good wetting out properties, resulting in low resin consumption.
  • GreenPoxy 28, a clear laminate containing 28% plant content. It is developed for tools and parts requiring resistance to temperatures.

The Footprint Progress is a result driven certification based on a three-year audit program – in accordance with international standards such as ISO 14062, ISO 14006 and EN ISO 14040/44 – that states that Sicomin’s bio-based epoxy systems are eco-designed and have limited environmental impact compared to standard epoxy formulation.
