Dunlop Aerospace income for UK carbon fibre reinforced ceramic material developer expected to fall.
Shares in Surface Transforms were out of favour after the maker of carbon fibre reinforced ceramic materials warned that second-half revenues are expected to decline because of the loss of income from the Dunlop partnership.
First-half sales increased but pretax losses widened to rise to 180,277 (GBP) on lower research and development tax credits and grants.
The company said it is developing new business revenue streams in the automotive and aircraft brake markets, and is maintaining its increased investment in operating and development activities.
The contract with Dunlop Aerospace was heralded as the most significant contract for Surface Transforms when news surfaced last May.

Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
Bindatex is celebrating 10 years of partnership and delivering 50 tonnes of multiaxial fabrics to a global composites reinforcement manufacturer. The specialist slitting service enables the manufacturer to supply its customers with material in a wide variety of widths.
