Queen’s Award winner Hambleside Danelaw will launch at Ecobuild 2009 a number of innovative roofing products, including Insulator TIMax translucent GRP insulated wall panel.
Insulator TIMax features translucent glass fibre filaments, which provide a good level of thermal insulation with U values at 1 W/m2K, and the translucent properties of the fibre elements allow natural light into the building
Additionally, Hambleside’s has teamed up with a nursery to offer a green roof system for the company’s FiberTite and Dryseal single ply and GRP roofing membranes.
Robin Jeffery, Hambleside’s vice chairman, said: “These product launches at Ecobuild demonstrates Hambleside Danelaw’s unrelenting commitment to innovation and sustainability in spite of the recession. With the massive potential savings on energy bills, the new products are proof that sustainability makes as much sense economically for the client as it does for cutting carbon emissions.”
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.
