C2 Delivers for Concorde Refurbishment

13 July 2001


C2 completed on time delivery of the last batch of 800 carbon fibre magazine pockets for the refurbishment of BA's Concorde fleet. These magazine pockets are a carbon fibre foam-sandwich construction made of fire resistant materials. They were bladder moulded using a single cavity metal mould tool. Using a fast cure cycle these parts could be made at a rate of 10 parts a day. This was part of the weight saving exercise undertaken during the extensive refurbishment of Concorde. So successful has been this technology that Britax Contour have placed four further contracts with C2 composites for other aircraft interior parts.

C2 Composites is a specialist manufacturer of carbon fibre composite structures. They make precision items using compression moulding, bladder moulding, composite insert moulding, tape wrapping and winding technologies.
