Campion adds new resin to its boats

Campion Marine Inc., Canada's largest fiberglass boatbuilder, will now manufacture its boats with Envirez, a renewably sourced bio-derived resin from Ashland Performance Materials.

Envirez resin uses a substantial amount of soybean oil and corn derived ethanol in its formulation.

"Ashland's bio-based resin delivers the performance characteristics we want for our boats and it reduces our reliance on petroleum-based counterparts," Campion general manager Brock Elliott said in a statement.

"We are putting Envirez resin in all our boats, not only because of its superior performance relating to strength and elongation, but because it's the right thing to do for our world," he added.

Research shows that the move to Envirez resin by Campion will eliminate more than 100,000 pounds of carbon monoxide from entering the atmosphere, the company said.

Campion Marine has been building high-performance sportboats and cruisers for 36 years. It manufactures more than 37 models and 48 variations of boats ranging from 16 to 30 feet in length, and markets and sells its boats in more than 30 countries.
