3A Composites will introduce its latest innovations in sustainable core materials at this year's JEC World.
“At 3A Composites we are focusing on delivering the next generation of ultra-performing and environmentally friendly core materials," says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials division, manufacturer of the AirexBaltekBanova products. "We are delighted to continue addressing our customers’ needs to reduce weight and thereby fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, while leveraging our complementary expertise to provide the next generation of sustainable core materials.”
3A Composites will present its new PET-based product AIREX T10.60, which is targeted at wind, automotive, construction and marine applications.
“We are excited to present the new AIREX T10.60 at the JEC World platform along with our extensive portfolio on sustainable composites," states Eric Gauthier, President of Global Key Accounts of 3A Composites Core Materials. "With T10.60 we bring new environmental and production improvements, while featuring all properties required by high-volume structural sandwich applications.”
AIREX T10.60 is a very low-density foam core with a homogeneous cell structure and highly-oriented properties. The cells are oriented to maximise the vertical compression properties that are important in sandwich application, and shear properties in the sheets’ length direction are claimed to exceed the values of all comparable products. AIREX T10.60 can be used in numerous sandwich applications where lightweight and cost efficiency are prerequisites for a successful product design.

Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
A skateboard, architectural panels and a rigid roof for boats, all built using Chomarat composite reinforcements, will be on display at CAMX 2018.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
