For the first time, a new mechanical densification method has been successfully developed to densify CNT fibres/films into highly dense structures.
To meet composite manufacturers’ need for more and more automation, Techni-Modul Engineering (TME) developed a robotized cell that can create a preform made out of dry fibre materials without operator intervention throughout the entire cycle.
Revology has reinvented the bistrot chair, 100% made of organic composite materials and bio-based resins.
Epoxy resins are preferred as matrix materials and adhesives for structural composite applications due to their outstanding process and performance properties, such as high mechanical strength/stiffness, fracture toughness and excellent bonding strength.
A joint programme was conducted by Mercedes-Benz and Multimatic to develop a lightweight structure from inception to production, spanning the entire composite value chain from engineering design to high-volume manufacturing feasibility
CSIR-NAL has taken up the development of a 14-seater civil aircraft named Saras.
The project, which focuses on an innovative flame-retardant composite material, was conducted under contract with Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as part of the Strategic Advance Technical Assistance Business 2011 programme.
Composite reinforcing bars (rebars) have gained attention in the building industry due to their higher corrosion resistance and durability than steel.
The market for fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcing bars is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4% between 2016 and 2021.
The aim of the project is to file a patent for a carbon fibre composite based armour for flexible pipes.
The material is made of a UD material reinforced with high-strength transverse carbon fibre combined with an epoxy resin (potentially thermoplastic).
Carbon fibre waste is precious, so there is high motivation to develop recycling. High-quality parts can now be produced from waste short-cut fibres.
Toho Tenax has been focusing on the Tenax® ThermoPlastics product range, which enables the user to combine fast processing times with high mechanical performance.
