JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Creative Pultrusions (CPI) and Ebert Composites Corporation (ECC) have entered into a manufacturing and marketing agreement, whereas CPI will house three Transonite production machines at their Alum Bank, Pennsylvania, manufacturing facility.
The Transonite panel will be marketed to an array of industries where lightweight, corrosion resistant, multidirectional Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) products are warranted.Transonite is the result of several years of R&D, first conceived from a grant through the National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST), Advanced Technology Program (ATP).SpecificationsAdvanced proprietary FRP pultruded sandwich panels utilizing 3-dimensional skin connecting fibers. It is a customized product designed for the end use. The core material may vary (foam, balsa, phenolic, etc.), and a wide range of fibers, fabrics, and resins can be utilized for the composite skin. The overall thickness can vary up to 4 inches. Individual skin thickness may vary, and the density of 3-D fibers is adjustable. This creates a sandwich panel that can meet all strength, weight, and cost demands - regardless of the application.BenefitsThe 3-D through-thickness fibers provide greater durability than conventional sandwich panels. Delamination, a common problem in traditional sandwich materials, is virtually eliminated with the 3-D reinforcements that tie the face sheets together. Additionally, it can be produced at any length, and width up to 8.5 feet. This provides large clean surfaces with no edges or seams.Transonite delivers:
Transonite Solid PlateTransonite Bar Stock is as strong as steel yet lighter. It can be pultruded up to 1 inch think, up to 8 feet wide, and at any length required.Bar Stock made with this process, contains structural fibers spanning three orthogonal directions. This solid composite is ideal for machining small components, as it is quasi-isotropic.
This Bar Stock suits for use in corrosive and marine industries, and can easily be fabricated with CNC equipment using diamond tools or water jet. Additionally, because it has 3-D fibers, machined components hold together.More information: www.ebertcomposites.com - www.creativepultrusions.com
