Hexcel is proud to partner Innegra Technologies in accepting a JEC Americas Innovation Award for Fibres.
The award will be presented on October 3rd at the JEC Americas show in Boston, US in recognition of the highly successful combination of Hexcel’s HexTow carbon fibre with Innegra fibre to maximise the high strength and toughness in composite laminates.
Innegra S Fibre is an ultra-lightweight (0.84g/cc) high modulus polypropylene fibre technology that provides a significant weight reduction in composites while increasing the ability to absorb energy for impact resistance when combined with other fibres.
Innegra Technologies primarily uses Hexcel’s high strength HexTow carbon fibre as a co-mingled product with Innegra fibre. Hexcel and Innegra worked in partnership to optimise the fibre mix, for which typical applications are sporting goods, safety helmets and automotive structures.
The sister ship of the renowned passenger ferry Vision of the Fjords takes sustainability one step further. A catamaran constructed from carbon fibre composite that runs entirely on batteries, Future of the Fjords will offer sightseeing with a minimum of environmental impact.
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.
