ACG has developed a range of prepregs that meet the demands of the automotive industry including BPSMk2.
BPSMk2 body panel system is one of ACG’s most recent developments and they explain that it is targeted at the medium to high volume market and utilises their DForm Deformable Composite System (DCS) technology. ACG explains that BPSMk2 de-skills and reduces laminating time, and minimises surface preparation work.
ACG will be demonstrating their BPSMk2 at the Composites Europe show next week along with their phenolic and epoxy prepregs, which are used in a variety of defence applications as well as interior applications in the rail and aerospace sectors. ACG say these prepregs match the stringent requirements of aerospace standards FAR25.853 and ABD0031, and numerous British, French and German standards set by the rail sector.
ACG can be found in Hall 4, stand F30 at the show.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
Fibrelite reports that since the start of its partnership with Trenwa more than 100 precast trench systems integrating Fibrelite composite covers have been sold for use in electrical substations, wastewater treatment plants, chemical refineries and many other applications across North America.
