Scott Bader (Wollaston, UK) will feature several applications of its resin systems and adhesives. New applications on display will include the Spanish Ariane 3 Moto3 World Championship racing motorcycle with its Crystic gel-coated and vacuum infused carbon fibre Crestapol 1250LV resin composite body panel parts bonded with Crestabond structural  adhesive. Also featured will be a new carbon fiber racing canoe for the Estonian Olympic squad, also Crystic gel-coated and vacuum molded using the carbon compatible, rapid cure Crestapol 1250LV infusion resin.

New for 2015, is GelTint, a new, fully automated, high-speed gelcoat volumetric tinting and color matching service developed by Scott Bader’s R&D group. This new gelcoat service is able to rapidly fulfill orders in 20-kg batches for a pigmented gelcoat from the full RAL colour range, with the new tinting system also able to color match to order from a suitable sample provided. The new volumetric tinting system reportedly can pigment any gelcoat base resin to a high level of batch-to-batch consistency; brush and spray grades are offered across the Crystic gelcoat range. Currently, the GelTint service is only available to UK customers, but plans are in place to extend the service more locally across Europe and beyond later in the year.
