Advanced Composites Group (ACG) recently completed a major overhaul of its Product Selector Guides (PSGs) and updated the presentation and delivery of its Product Data Catalogue (PDC).
ACG’s market-specific PSGs, previously only available in paper and PDF formats, are now available as a web-based suite on CD and via the Catalogue link on ACG’s web site. These new PSGs are designed to guide the user to the most suitable product for the intended end application, while still providing the opportunity for experienced composites professionals to browse at their leisure.
Designed to accommodate all of the market sectors that ACG serves, these PSGs are presented as a comprehensive suite, covering the Marine, Aerospace, Automotive, Motorsport, Tooling, Sport/Leisure and Construction markets. In addition, they can also be supplied in bespoke formats for individual markets. The full PSG suite also incorporates a fabric selector guide, a comprehensive catalogue of ACG’s products and a range of general supporting literature, including a selection of component images. To assist the newcomer, the PSG suite also contains a general document that details typical prepreg processing routes. The PDC includes product data sheets, technical data sheets, sales information and general material handling documents.
