The catch is that many of these materials can’t be welded. Now there’s an alternative joining method available – gradient adhesives provide a good way of ensuring joined parts stay joined for their entire service life and hold up well in the event of a crash.<br /></p></div><p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/versatile-bonding-lightweight-components" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Innovations Aeronautics & Aerospace Automotive Other sectors Carbon Fiber Ancillary Products Mon, 24 Nov 2014 11:53:37 +0000 editor 32454 at http://www.jeccomposites.com Gamesa signs new contracts with CGN and Everbright for the supply of 112 MW in China http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/gamesa-signs-new-contracts-cgn-and-everbright-supply-112-mw-china <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The company has further consolidated its Chinese presence with two new supply contracts.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-news-wide-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/news/composites-news/gamesa-signs-new-contracts-cgn-and-everbright-supply-112-mw-china" class="imagecache imagecache-news-wide-image-view-list imagecache-linked imagecache-news-wide-image-view-list_linked"><img src="http://www.jeccomposites.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/news-wide-image-view-list/content/images/wide_image/27294-gamesa.jpg" alt="Gamesa signs new contracts with CGN and Everbright for the supply of 112 MW in China" title="Gamesa signs new contracts with CGN and Everbright for the supply of 112 MW in China" class="imagecache imagecache-news-wide-image-view-list" width="420" height="84" /></a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-field-body"><div class="textoficha" style="text-align: justify;"><div class="modulo2"><p>The first is a new contract with CGN Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China's General Nuclear Power Group, for the supply of 64 MW;
