Cobra International & Sicomin - Supply Agreement

Sicomin has secured a significant bio resin supply arrangement with Cobra International. Both companies have worked in partnership very successfully for over 25 years and Cobra is the principal OEM for windsurf, surfboard and stand up paddle boards for leading brands including; Starboard, Fanatic, JP Australia, Surftech and NSP.

Sicomin's substantial investment at their south of France facility to support the industrial supply of bio resins has allowed Cobra to make an easy transition from traditional petrochemical based epoxies to GreenPoxy™ for the production of many water sports products.

Danu Chotikapanich, Co­bra's CEO, commented:
"We are proud of our decision to move towards bio based products. The composites industry must promote sustainability to support a greener future for everyone. Sicomin has been integral in our shift to bio products and there have been no compromises in mechanical performance and mini­mal difference in cost."
