Zürich/Switzerland -- Gurit, one of the leading global suppliers of composite materials, engineering, tooling, parts and systems will be showcasing its latest product innovations at JEC Europe 2013 (stand K44), from Tuesday 12th to Thursday 14th March 2013. The exhibition to be held in Pavilion 1, Porte de Versailles, Paris, is the biggest composite exhibition in the world.

Gurit will be promoting its new sealing technology for PET to reduce resin uptake whilst retaining peel strength and bulk core properties. In the prepreg product segment, Gurit will be presenting Airstream™ coating technology, a specialized prepreg developed to enable the economic manufacture of very high quality unidirectional carbon spar caps without the requirement of a temperature controlled factory environment.

Gurit will also be showcasing its next generation of Automotive materials for high volume body panel production, using rapid press molding to produce a Class-A finish capable of high temperature paint-line processing. In the structural core range, Gurit will be promoting its new fire retardant PET foam; G-PET FR with superior Fire, Smoke, Toxicity (FST) performance and its new core sealing technology for Balsa, the first commercially available Balsa sealing Technology, UVOTECH, to significantly reduce resin uptake whilst retaining core-laminate adhesion and durability.

Gurit will be launching a new fire retardant epoxy wet laminating system capable of BS4276 Class 1 flame spread resistance and a new prepreg technology that eliminates the requirement for chilled storage, and when used in conjunction with Gurit's Airstream™ technology provides a truly unique prepreg solution tolerant to almost any factory environment.
