To meet the unique requirements of composite structures in modern boat and yacht building, MGS Kunstharzprodukte presented a series of new products to the public at this years JEC composites show in Paris.
Besides laminating and infusion resins especially optimized for boat building, MGS now offers a full portfolio of tooling and foaming resins, fillers and adhesives. Of particular interest are the newly developed tooling resins, allowing even very large molds to be produced by resin infusion – reliably and economically.
MGS Epoxy adhesive resins for structural bonding are supplied as ready-to-use systems and can be used for joints with gaps from Millimeters up to several Centimeters.
For 25 years, Germanys MGS Kunstharzprodukte GmbH is a leading supplier of high quality thermoset systems. Epoxy resin products of MGS gained outstanding reputation through excellent performance, tailored systems and customer focused service throughout Europe in the wind turbine, boat building and leisure aircraft industries.
Since the integration of MGS into Bakelite AG in 2001, synergy effects are being used intensively both in marketing and product development. Currently a number of Bakelite aerospace products are being adapted for marine applications.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
