BluCure: AVK Innovation Award 2012
At the AVK Composites Conference in Düsseldorf, Germany, the BluCure Cobalt-free Technology has received public recognition as a truly sustainable curing technology. In the category “Innovative Product” the BluCure Technology was awarded with a third position, being the only curing technology winning such prize.
The BluCure umbrella brand covers innovative Cobalt-free resin curing technologies and products. The BluCure quality seal guarantees that products are 100% Cobalt-free. BluCure is an initiative of AkzoNobel and DSM and is available to all resin and component manufacturers in the composites industry.
At the award ceremony AVK Jury spokesman Dr Gerd Esswein indicated “BluCure Technology is enabling the composite industry to move away from Cobalt. We believe this technology offers great performance of composite parts and sustainable end-user value at the same time.” He added “Staying ahead of legislation will remain essential for the industry and we are convinced in this respect the BluCure Technology will play an important role”.
