Gazechim Composites Ibérica, Magnum Venus Products and AIMPLAS have established Composites360, a partnership designed to foster the use of composite materials.
The aim of the collaboration is to organise events to provide information on the use of composite materials and promote new applications. The first event was a workshop in April, which focused on the use of high-performance composite materials manufactured by closed mould processes for application in the automotive, transport and aeronautics sectors. Speakers discussed materials, product design, quality, process optimisation and manufacturing costs. A demonstration showcased the production of parts by RTM, including the use of polyester-type resins and epoxy with glass and carbon fibres.
