Elaztobond - A resourceful alternative to resorcinol
This family of resins virtually eliminates free resorcinol emissions, thereby decreasing flammability and minimizing coating on manufacturing equipment. Often used in rubber manufacturing where resorcinol resins are used, it reduces emissions and maintenance while simplifying disposal, improving overall working conditions.
Reducing emissions through intelligent R&D
SI Group developed a resin that allows reductions in monomer levels which allows manufacturers of composite articles to meet and exceed workplace health and safety standards. This approach to the reduction in volatile monomer emissions is not only beneficial to their workers and the environment, but enables them to avoid purchasing costly emission control equipment.
Partnering to improve processes and decrease consumption
SI Group partnered with a leading manufacturer of automotive brake shoes and truck blocks to improve their products and optimize their overall production process. This partnership led to a significant reduction in "bake" cycle time and energy consumption.
