Scott Bader resins take to the seas 20 June 2024

Poland-based CS Kompozyty (CSK) has created a low emission solution for the production and operation of small recreational boats, using the Crestomer structural adhesive from Scott Bader, as well as the company’s range of marine grade Crystic resins and gelcoats.

Creating the world’s first hydrogen powered boat meant designing a hull up to 6m that met displacement, capacity, stability, strength and safety requirements. Scott Bader therefore used low emission technologies, including infused laminates manufactured from its renowned Crystic VE679-03PA resin and LS30PA gelcoat.

The project combined environmental, social and commercial aspects – reducing emissions during the construction of the boat, increasing the availability of hydrogen in marinas, as well as creating a simple construction that’s easy to manufacture and therefore produces less waste.

CSK is part of the CSV Group, which serves 400 customers in Poland across three main industries – composites, painting and propulsion systems for yachts and motorboats. The company has worked closely in partnership with Scott Bader since 2006.
