As a boat builder or operations manager, you know how important it is to consider quality and sustainability when selecting materials. Using sustainable materials can not only reduce environmental impact, but also bring long-term savings. One promising innovation in core materials is Kerdyn Green. It is a sustainable core material made from recycled PET foam. In this article you will learn more about Kerdyn Green and its benefits for boat building.
What is Kerdyn Green?
Gurit’s sustainable PET foam is an innovative core material made from recycled PET foam. It is a sustainable alternative to conventional core materials while providing excellent performance and strength. The foam core is lightweight, strong and has excellent sound and thermal insulation. It is ideal for use in various boatbuilding applications such as sandwich panels, ceilings, floors and walls.
How sustainable is Kerdyn Green?
Kerdyn Green is a sustainable choice because it is made from recycled PET foam. PET foam is a by-product of the production of PET bottles and other PET products. By recycling PET foam, the amount of waste is reduced and the material is reused. The product is also 100% recyclable and can be recycled again at the end of its life cycle.
What are the advantages of Kerdyn Green for boatbuilding?
Sustainable PET foam offers many benefits for boatbuilding, including:
- Sustainability: the product is a sustainable choice and helps to reduce the environmental impact.
- Weight: the rigid foam board is lighter than traditional core materials, which can reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency.
- Stability: the product is stable and has high strength, which can lead to a longer life of the boat.
- Sound and heat insulation: it has excellent sound and heat insulation properties, which can improve the comfort on board.
- Easy processing: Kerdyn Green can be cut and shaped easily and is easy to process.
In summary, Kerdyn Green is an innovative and sustainable alternative to conventional core materials. Made from renewable raw materials, the material not only offers high strength and stiffness, but also a lower environmental impact during production and disposal. Using Kerdyn Green in boatbuilding, industrial and craft applications can help reduce environmental impact while delivering high-quality results.
Thanks to its availability in various sizes and thicknesses, as well as its compatibility with different resin systems and processing technologies, Kerdyn Green offers a versatile solution for a wide range of applications.
