Formax will launch MultiCore, a multipurpose core fabric for the marine, automotive, industrial and construction markets at Composites Europe 2010, Stand B37, Hall 12.
MultiCore is a range of stitched core fabrics combining layers of reinforcement with infusable core materials, designed to offer optimised resin flow, high drapeability, consistent behaviour in the vacuum process and high quality surface finishes.
MultiCore can be adapted to maximise performance for any application with a wide choice of core materials, densities, and thicknesses. The reinforcements offered on either side of the core are also variable from standard chopped mats, to continuous filament mats. Formax’s range of multiaxial fabrics can also be integrated into the design to create the ultimate complex that offers precise directional reinforcement and optimum strength.
Also being showcased at Composites Europe will be the Formax portfolio of advanced reinforcement materials including lightweight carbon fabrics for automotive and industrial applications, specialised glass fabrics for the marine and industrial sectors and heavyweight glass fabrics for infusion processes.
Toho Tenax is introducing a high-tensile, highly shock-resistant prepreg that incorporates carbon fibre developed for aerospace applications and carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
At the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA)'s third annual Infrastructure Day on 6-7 February 2018 34 ACMA members joined together to meet with over 100 Members of Congress and their staffs to advance legislation to drive investment in innovative material solutions for transportation, water and energy infrastructure.
Shoppers visiting the newly redeveloped Halls Head Central Shopping Centre will be greeted by a 3.5 m x 2.5 m core composite spiral ribbon representing the logo of one of the centre's owners.
