Ito & Assoc, a Vancouver based distributor of building products to Japan, has placed Duxton fiberglass windows into the first Net Zero house project in Japan.
This home will be a feature project for the 2008 G8 Conference near Sapporo, Hokkaido. It is anticipated that the Canadian government will highlight the numerous Canadian technologies which will be incorporated in this cutting edge home.
Kimi Ito notes, ""We know that an energy efficient building envelope is extremely important to achieve ""net zero"" building performance. We also know that high performance windows are a critical part of the building envelope. We have followed and noted the progress of Duxton fiberglass windows and immediately selected their product for this important project.""
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
UK company Prodrive Composites has developed a process for manufacturing recyclable composite components that can satisfy future end-of-life requirements without any compromise in the performance of the original parts. The company says the P2T (Primary to Tertiary) process not only simplifies recycling, but endows a composite material with the potential to fulfil three or more useful lifetimes.
Designers at Elemental Motor have utilised tailored fibre placement (TPF) to extend the use of carbon composites in its RP1 sports car.
