Interplastic Corporation and Structural Composites Incorporated (SC) have formed a partnership to market Advanced Marine Coatings™. This product line uses Structural Composites Inc’s CoCure™ technology bringing the functionality of urethane chemistry to gel coats, allowing a higher performing product with regard to flexibility, weatherability and durability, all critical to the Marine industry.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Structural Composites on this venture,” says Harry Certain, Business Manager for Interplastic Corporation. “SC is a leader in the development of composites for the marine industry. The discovery of the CoCure concept provides the marine market the tools to greatly improve boat design, improving performance and lowering overall cost.”
“Interplastic has taken our CoCure concept and made it a reality for gel coats in the marine market.” Says Scott Lewit, President of SCI. “Their expertise in gel coat technology and fundamental understanding of urethane chemistry has allowed a refinement of the product optimizing performance allowing the maximum benefits from the blend. Gel Coat is no longer a constraint to superior boat design.”
Both Companies will be displaying the technology at IBEX in Tampa, FL October 1-4, 2018. Interplastic Booth #753 and Structural Composites Booth #1242 & R14. Interplastic will also be at booth #N65 and Structural Composites at Booth #G62 during CAMX in Dallas, TX October 16-18, 2018. Technical educational sessions will be held at both events.
