Bitrez launches Curabox – a new family of thermoset Benzoxazine resins

Bitrez Ltd, the UK's leading manufacturer of specialist polymers and chemicals is launching a family of flame retardant Benzoxazine thermoset resins called Curabox at Advanced Engineering 2018.

With high service temperatures and excellent mechanical and electrical properties, Curabox performs well over prolonged periods in difficult working environments. Its high performance characteristics and endurance to mechanical and chemical attack, make it extremely suitable for the manufacture of long service composite components. Applications include primary and secondary structures for aerospace, or frames, body panels and structural reinforcements on trains, buses, trucks and cars.

Bitrez's Curabox is the result of a Pan-European project - in partnership with a leading European materials research and development centre - to push the boundaries of Benzoxazine chemistry.

Based in Wigan, Bitrez manufactures high performance synthetic resin, catalysts and curing agents for world-class companies across aerospace, automotive, defence, energy, oil and gas and general industrial.

Dominic Hopwood, Bitrez's Composites Resin Sales Manager, said: "We're very excited to launch our new family of flame retardant Benzoxazine thermoset reins which will go under the trade name of Curabox. This is just the start of our Curabox story. We hope to be in a position, in the next 12 months, to add further grades to the Curabox family which will bring even more novel chemistry to composite applications! So if you're in the market for a high performance resin system, come along to our stand at Advanced Engineering and have a chat about how we can help you!"

Bitrez also offers toll conversion as well as technical support. Its team of highly qualified and experienced chemists can produce materials from laboratory scale through a transient pilot stage to enable scale up and allow for small scale qualification work before moving to commercial manufacture.

Bitrez's manufacturing plant, which is COMAH [Seveso] and ISO 9001/14001/18001 compliant, comprises numerous reaction units from 3000 – 30,000 litre capacity, along with exceptional cooling facilities to accommodate high reactivity resins.
