Breaking down barriers Water-insensitive curing systems for bio-fiber reinforced composites Our Nouryact curing systems have paved the way for the development of a novel water-insensitive curing system for bio-fiber reinforced composites. These bio-fibers offer a sustainable alternative to traditional materials used in everything from scooters to furniture. Among the advantages of bio-fibers are relatively light weight and end-of-life biodegradability. With the Nouryact curing system, the bio-fibers no longer require a drying process, making the production process more robust and efficient, while reducing the carbon footprint of a manufacturer’s end products. The novel curing system was recognized with a 2015 JEC Innovation award.
