CEM, Composite Essential Materials, has partnered with Saertex to deliver its SAERfoam material.
SAERTEX explains that its worldwide strategy is to offer, through its distributors, a local service with people specialised in Core Material. SAERTEX, dedicated to its wind blade direct accounts, has been working for the past 6 months, exclusively with CEM promoting its SAERfoam range, throughout the US market.
Nick Dan, CEO of CEM emphasises, “Composite Essential Materials is proud to be the chosen strategic partner for SAERTEX in the US. Equally, we chose SAERTEX for their cutting edge innovation, professional staff, and stellar performance. Together, we will breathe life into composites solutions.”
The SAERTEX core material, SAERfoam, is described as an innovation process result which combines through-thickness glass fibre reinforcements with an ultra-light foam to create an optimised core material for infusion, RTM and pultrusion processes.
According to SAERTEX, the main advantage of SAERfoam is its ratio stiffness/weight for all major parts, flooring and decks. It says that, herefore, SAERfoam is an ideal replacement of PVC, PET and balsa wood. It can be tailor-made and customised, is easy to cut, has excellent impact resistance and is compatible with all resins. It adds that, over the years, it has become a well-established solution in the marine and transportation industry based on Bureau Veritas and Germanisher Llyod’s Type Approvals.
