Gurit introduces its latest composite innovations at ICERP 2013, Mumbai, India
27th March 2013, Gurit, a global innovator and developer of composite
materials, engineering, tooling, parts and systems (SIX Swiss Exchange: GUR),
will introduce its latest composite product and technology innovations to the
Indian market at the International Conference and Exhibition for Reinforced
Plastics (ICERP), Mumbai, from 4th-6th April 2013. Stand F4B.

Gurit established its Indian office in 2007, and Gurit (India) has since grown
into a major supplier of composite solutions to the wind energy, defence and
aerospace sectors across the country.

At ICERP 2013, Gurit will present itself to the wider composite market, and
introduce its comprehensive range of products and technology to all market
sectors, such as transportation, boatbuilding, sports goods and general
industrial. Gurit products and services include glass, aramid and carbon fibre
prepregs, a range of structural cores including CoreCell(TM), PVCell,
G-PET(TM) and Balsaflex(TM), epoxy laminating resins and adhesives, tooling
systems, as well as engineering and prototyping services.

The Gurit (India) team is led by Mr Prashant Kshirsagar, a veteran of the
composites arena, with experience across a wide range of applications. This
experience combined with Gurit's complete composite solution provides
composite manufacturers in India with the local supply and technical support
they need to make their projects a success.

Mr Kshirsagar and his technical team will be available at the show to discuss
your projects and composite requirements. Gurit will present a paper at the
ICERP Conference, entitled "The use of composites in fire resistant-critical
applications". Please refer to the ICERP website for more details about the
date and time.

The latest products from Gurit include:

Long Shelf-Life Resin Technology which no longer requires chilled storage
Gurit's latest break-through in prepreg resin technology extends the
shelf-life of unchilled prepregs to over two months at temperatures of up to
35â°C / 95â°F, which are ideal to reduce transportation, storage and ambient
temperature-control costs.

ILATECH(TM) Tooling Coat
ILATECH(TM) is a new surface coating for Gurit moulds, developed in
conjunction with ILAG Industrielack AG, which creates a smooth, strong and
durable surface, enhancing the life span of the mould, providing safe
de-mould, and reducing manufacturing costs for Gurit's customers.

CBS 200 Press Technology for finished carbon car body parts

CBS 200 is a new press process from Gurit, reducing the labour and time needed
to manufacture high-performance Class A composite car body panels. With a
curing time of under 10 minutes, the refined process allows for the
manufacture up to 40,000 parts per year from a single tool set. The new
product is thermally stable to over 200â°C / 390â°F, making the composite
parts fully compatible with existing mass production painting and assembly
methods.

G-PET(TM) FR and G-PET(TM)LITE
G-PET(TM) is a highly adaptable, recyclable, thermoplastic foam with a good
balance of mechanical properties, temperature resistance, density and cost.
G-PET(TM)LITE has an optimal surface finish for low resin uptake, with no
degradation of adhesive properties; and G-PET(TM) FR has excellent fire, smoke
and toxicity performance (DIN 5510-2, ASTM E1354, ASTM E662 and BSS7239).
