Far-UK has started the development of 4 new processes under the Composite Innovation Cluster project.
The company expects to bring at least 2 processes to market during the project. These processes have been given the code names Process 1, Process 2, Process 3 and Process 4. The most advanced of these is Process 4 and the company exhibited a composite manufactured wheelchair using this process at JEC Paris.
As a winner of the North West Automotive Alliance Annual Innovation Award, Process 4 is designed to enable niche vehicle manufacturers to produce complex shapes with carbon fibre, with the aim of being a cost comparable solution with Aluminium, and offering significant weight reduction through the use of composites.
Kordsa, operating in tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market with its mission ‘We Reinforce Life’, has launched a new campaign with the slogan ‘Inspired from life, we reinforce life’.
Dura Composites has expanded its Dura Deck range to include Dura Deck Resist, a co-extruded decking board with an innovative 360 degree outer angle which protects its core from the elements, as well as a new and improved Dura Deck Eco.
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
