Sicomin’s InfuGreen 810 Used in New Couach Fly 86/2600 Motor Yacht - The Largest Bio-Epoxy Hull

October 11 2021

Sicomin’s InfuGreen 810 bio-based epoxy infusion resin has been used for the infusion of the new Couach Fly 86/2600 Motor Yacht – one of the largest structures to be infused with bio-resins to date, and by far the largest yacht hull.
Sicomin’s InfuGreen 810 was used to vacuum infuse the 26-metre, 52 ton superyacht’s hull, deck and superstructure producing a lighter, faster, more durable yacht, and reducing overall fuel consumption significantly.
With 38% of its carbon content from plant based sources, InfuGreen 810, is formulated to provide a more sustainable vacuum infusion resin with uncompromising performance. With the testing program complete, and the additional reassurance of the resin’s DNV GL type approval in hand, Couach prepared to infuse the 2600 Fly hull. Sicomin also supplied release agents compatible with its epoxies and vacuum consumables that had been well proven in Couach production before this first major epoxy resin application. Building on this initial success, InfuGreen 810 was then also used for deck and superstructure components with GreenPoxy 33 bio-based hand laminating resins used for secondary bonding in the yacht’s final assembly.
“Our InfuGreen 810 resin really does offer the optimum solution for infusion in a large structure such as the Fly 86/2600” comments Philippe Gruaud, Head of Technical Sales for Western France, Sicomin. “The significantly lower viscosity and increased fiber wetting enable rapid, controllable and void free infusion of the laminate, particularly when using heavyweight multiaxial and woven reinforcement plies. It’s not just a more sustainable option, it’s the best technical option for a project like this.”
