The SikaBiresin® RockCast product range offers the whole package for producing innovative and high aesthetic climbing holds.

 

Within the last years, the trend in climbing holds production goes from polyester to polyurethane material, due to many advantages of the polyurethane material:

 

  • Freedom in design and less brittleness of material
  • UV stability for outdoor applications
  • Reduced chipping and no breaks
  • Easy cleaning
  • Lightweight for easy carrying
  • Good pigmenting for freedom in creativity
     

RockCast-150 is a two component unfilled fastcast polyurethane resin for making series of climbing holds. A pot life of 2.5 minutes and a short curing time offers short cycles times in combination with high mechanical properties.

 

This unfilled material is the perfect system to fulfill the requirements of the climbing hold market in terms of mechanical properties and processing, as well as in competition with polyester, which is harmful for health. The main characters of the fastcast resin are a high abrasion resistance as well as a high temperature resistance. Furthermore the balance between pot life and demoulding time help to produce small and medium climbing holds <5 kg in an efficient way.
