3TEX has signed a strategic sales agreement with Composites Specialists, a distributor of specialty fiber and fabric materials to the reinforced plastics industry, to promote and distribute 3TEX’s 3carbonbillet products throughout the Western part of the United States.
3TEX designed the 3carbonbillet to be leveraged in a variety of applications including military uses, transportation, and industrial construction. 3TEX has already designed and created automotive and high performance bike parts using standard steel and aluminum machining equipment. The results are clean, sharp part lines and bolt/bearing strength ratings comparable to aluminum.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
After the collapse of a drinking water pipeline in downtown Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Insituform was contracted to reline a close to 100 year old pipe underneath one of the canals. Water was restored successfully within five days, with minimal impact on traffic and the environment.
