DIAB Demonstration at IBEX

20 January 2003

DIAB’s engineering will present at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference an outdoor demonstration titled ‘Ultra-Light Marine Construction Utilizing Pre-Preg and Thermoformed PVC Foam Core’.

The exhibition is at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center between the days of February 5 and 7, 2003. DIAB will construct a small boat hull using epoxy pre-preg and thermoformed Divinycell PVC foam. The pre-preg skins will be bonded to the preformed foam using a vacuum-bagging system in conjunction with a heating element. This demonstration will present a clean and efficient way to produce an extremely light and structurally sound part.

This process technology has been implemented in a number of successful high performance marine projects, including the construction of illbruck Challenge, the winner of the Volvo Ocean Race. For further information please visit the DIAB booth at IBEX.
