The Composites Association of New Zealand (CANZ) is sponsoring a seminar to showcase the capabilities of New Zealand composite fabricators to assist the rebuilding and restoration of the heritage of Christchurch.
The seminar will be held on the 4th November in Christchurch and will include examples of how composites have been used to replace or work in conjunction with traditional construction materials. Case studies and examples of local design and manufacturing capability will also be shown.
CANZ say “The rebuilding of a stronger, more sustainable Christchurch will benefit from the use of lighter and stronger fibre composite materials, especially in retrofitting and strengthening existing buildings and in the heritage replication of facades and other historic items.”
CANZ say the seminar will be targeted at material specifiers such as architects, engineers, developers and builders, as well as local body and Government personnel. They are inviting companies to make a submission demonstrating their capabilities and experience.
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.
Cobra International is celebrating its 40th year and has commissioned a book that will look at 40 key projects and 40 key people that were integral to the company’s growth. ‘Klaus Simmer and The King Cobra: A breakthrough in surfboard design and production technology’ is an extract article from this book and a breakthrough composites product for Cobra, establishing its presence as a manufacturer of high performance windsurf boards and creating global visibility for the Cobra brand.
