About Bitrez Limited

Bitrez is a Queen's Award winning, R&D focused resin-manufacturing organisation that offers an extensive range of highly innovative materials developed for an equally broad range of markets and applications within the Composites, Coatings, Adhesive and Insulation (casting / encapsulation) sectors.

Products include Amino and Amino-triazine, Epoxy, Phenolic, Vinyl Ester, Benzoxazine and Phenol-Aralkyl resins along with a range of complimentary curing agents and catalysts.

In the recent past, whilst our focus has always remained the development of high performance polymers, we have adapted many of our chemistries to be compliant with REACH, the European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals, which came into force on 1st June 2007.

However, during the past 12-18 months, a key focus has been the further development of our range of Green chemistry, focusing on bio-epoxy, bio-based curing agents and bio-phenolic (PFA), formulated for processing via numerous methods.

Rapid response and flexibility are combined with in-house R&D offering controlled design, development and implementation programmes, including pilot plant to assure new and existing customers of timely, effective solutions to their resin requirements.
