VELOX will be present at the Advanced Engineering Show taking place on the 2-3 November at NEC in Birmingham, UK.
As a one-stop-shop to its customers VELOX says it offers a wide range of composites specialities covering over 1000 products, from thermoset matrix (polyester, vinyl-ester, epoxy, phenolic), glass and carbon reinforcements, organic peroxides, core materials, specific fillers and additives, solvents, ancillaries and equipment.
This year VELOX will present its range of advanced composites for infusion, open-mould and heated-press. Kenny Shea, VELOX Composites Regional Business Manager in UK, states, “We are looking forward to show our advanced range including pre-pregs from JSI Krempel, paramount for light-weight and high-strength construction parts, as well as epoxy resins for infusion, RTM and wet lay in where high Tg low water absorption and mechanical strength are required. We will also introduce pre-pregs with combination of epoxy/glass, epoxy/carbon, polyester/glass and PU, filament winding and pultrusion, along with our range of reinforcements, natural fibres, as well as structural adhesives and our new non and low solvent resin and gelcoat systems.”
According to VELOX, those products are suitable for a broad industrial spectrum such as automotive, aerospace, wind energy and marine where high performance materials are the key to superior performance.
Composites professionals can also discover the VELOX product range online and order their products 'live' on www.velox-composites.co.uk. On the webshop customers can find a large product choice together with secure payment and fast delivery.

Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
