Gurit is to temporarily reduce staffing levels at its Canadian structural foam plant in Magog by 125 people.
The decision has been attributed to the fluctuating demand for Corecell structural foam products in the Marine and Wind Energy Market since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, which has caused a fluctuation within the workforce throughout this period.
As with all previous temporary lay-offs in the Canadian structural foam plant, Gurit believes that the newly announced measures are transitory in nature and expects to call the first people back within two months and the majority within six months.
These measures are not expected to cause any restructuring cost.
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.
Innovators and industry pioneers will gather to discuss the latest applications of graphene nanotubes at the Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit (NAUM) 2018 in Shanghai, China, on 31 October. Visitors will also be able to see an on-site demonstration of the production of nanoaugmented products with real industrial equipment.
