Huntsman helps achieve maximum efficiences Tooling and production materials from Huntsman Advanced Materials have been selected to construct a new One Design carbon racing yacht in a project which sees Huntsman supporting each stage of the project; from design through to the finishing techniques in production.


T


he CODE8 is a light displacement, high performance racing yacht which was designed by America’s Cup yacht designer Andrej Justin and professionally crafted by Carbon Innovation Ltd. Carbon Innovation decided to use Huntsman’s production


materials after consultations with Farix Ltd, Huntsman’s distributor in Hungary. The materials were chosen for their toughness, high quality surface finish and dimensional accuracy. Also, in the case of parts production, they were specifically selected for their heat and chemical resistance properties. CAD data was initially used to produce a plug of the yacht from a PSFoam substructure and (RenPaste® SV36/Ren®


HV 36) modelling


paste. The parts were then CNC machine milled to create a master model for fast extrusion, exhibiting both low shrinkage and a smooth surface finish. A high performance gel coat (Resin XD4615/Ren®


applied to the master model and a backing layer was built up (using Renlam®


CY219/XB5173 in combination with glass fibre) to form the


mould for the hull, deck and all other parts. For other components, including the mast and rudder, an Araldite® pre-preg system (Araldite® LY 1556/Aradur®


1573/Accelerator 1571/


Hardener XB 3403) was selected and used in combination with Carbon Innovation’s self-developed pre-preg machine. This system has an easy B-staging and GL certification and can also be used for wet lay-up; filament winding and resin transfer moulding. “Using Huntsman’s products and systems throughout the project has optimised our management time and provided a central expert source of technical know-how and product supply,” said Tamas Simon, managing director at Carbon Innovation.
