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.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
Porcher Industries will exhibit several innovations among which: D3sign yarns, Porcher Greenlite based on pure cellulose fibers, Pipregs made of thermoplastics laminates and prepregs.
Porcher D3sign yarns are bindered tows specifically targeted to new technologies such as AFP or tow winding in order to provide dry preforms. It provides unique advantages over thermoset prepreg tows in thermal and storage stabilities and potential applications for out-of-autoclave processing. These yarns are available in a range of flat yarns and thermoset resins. It is of particular interest for the aerospace and aeronautics markets.
Porcher Greenlite is a new generation of high performance renewable reinforcements for the composites industry. These materials are based on pure cellulose fibers. The biocomposites are made on an excellent weight / performance basis. They are biodegradable and highly compatible with bio-based resins, making them suitable for the production of 100% bio-based composites on a large scale. Porcher Greenlite fabrics can be processed using Boothard equipment with no modifications to the existing technology.
Pipregs are thermoplastics laminates and prepregs combining the advantages of continuous fibers and polymers.
The woven continuous fibers bear the mechanical loads of the composite and are combinated with polymers which distribute these strengths over the fibers and determine the thermal, chemical and part of the impact resistance of the composite. Pipregs give high flexibility to optimise materials. Pipregs with various polymer/reinforcement combination and/or polymer volume content can be developed on request.
As every year, recent innovations in Asia will be presented in JEC Asia. This edition will be held from October 18th to 20th at SUNTEC International Convention & Exhibition Centre in Singapore...
