Attwater and Custom Composites will display advanced carbon fibre marine products and a range of their best-selling laminates, when they return to the Composites Engineering Show, part of the Advanced Engineering Show, for the seventh year.
According to Attwater, which has become a familiar face at the industry show, it has a bigger stand this year to showcase more exhibits. Attwater's centre-piece will be specialist carbon fibre tubes currently in high demand across the marine sector. The tubes make up handles and tillers, which are lightweight but boast enhanced stiffness, giving users a huge competitive advantage when sailing.
After investing in the expansion of its in-house testing facility, Attwater is now able to offer materials testing to customers - allowing them to test products against more than 30 measures and to internationally recognised standards.
Also on display will be items hand-picked from Attwater's selection of high-performance products, including an extensive range of standard laminate sheets, composite tubes and rods made from a selection of materials such as epoxy glass, polyimide glass, phenolic cotton and other products. Examples of machined components will also be exhibited to illustrate the wide variety of applications possible.
Custom Composites will be exhibiting its range of carbon fibre tubes that have many specialist uses in sectors including military, sport and industrial sectors.
Rachael Kennedy, Sales Director from Attwater, said, "It has been an exciting year of developments at Attwater and we're delighted to be returning to Composites Engineering with an even bigger presence than ever before.
"We have invested a lot in improving and expanding our range of products and we have added the ability to test for our customers, which we are very excited about. With our new, larger stand we hope to share that message and our services with our industry colleagues."
