ELFOAM products are available in 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-lb/ft 3 densities supplied as blocks, sheets and custom shapes. With a temperature range from -297°F to +300°F and compatibility with polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins, the foam can be used for a variety of applications. It is compatible with an array of processes including hand layup, sprayup, vacuum infusion, resin transfer molding, lami- nation, pultrusion and filament winding. In terms of physical characteristics, it is said to offer high strength-to-weight ratios, chemical resistance, thermal insulation, and Class 1 fire performance, as well as low water permeability. It also can be easily machined, perforated and sliced. Booth U51.

A particular focus at CAMX is on Scott Bader's polyester, vinyl ester and hybrid bonding pastes under the new Crestafix brand name. Scott Bader bonding pastes are used in a range of applications and markets offering customers a choice of densities, gel times, color change, low shrinkage and ease of application. A new Crestafix sampling kit has been developed to offer customers the opportunity to sample and compare their chosen Crestafix options. The Crestapol range of high-performance urethane acrylate resins is also a key product focus, with particular emphasis on the fire-retardant (FR) properties of filled Crestapol resins and Crystic FR gelcoats and intumescent topcoats.
