Top athletes in biathlon, cross country and Nordic combined won 10 gold, 15 silver and 10 bronze medals using the latest state-of-the-art skis from the Norwegian ski manufacturer Madshus.
For many years Madshus have used high performance Rohacell PMI foam cores as an integral part of their top ski design. The strength-to-weight ratio and fatigue behaviour of the PMI sandwich foam core makes the material particularly suitable for applications where high dynamic loads apply.
PMI foams are used in a wide variety of applications ranging from top sports products to aerospace.
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.
