Composites Evolution is pleased to announce the launch of its new prepregging business from 1st March 2018 following a major investment in new prepreg manufacturing facility.
All of Composites Evolution’s prepregs, for both component moulding and tooling applications, will now be marketed under the brand name Evopreg. The range includes epoxy prepregs and bio-based phenolic-substitute prepregs based on fabrics of carbon, glass, flax, basalt and aramid. These materials will be supplied from Composites Evolution’s new factory in Chesterfield, UK.
Sitting alongside its existing bio-derived reinforcements business, the new range of prepregs will help the company continue to meet the ever-growing needs of its customers. By broadening its portfolio of materials, Composites Evolution aims to grow its customer base whilst building upon its heritage of innovation and hands-on, customer-focused support.
“We are passionate about working with designers and end-users to better exploit the benefits of composites in their products. The expansion of our team, our in-house manufacturing capability and our new range of prepreg products will help us to achieve our goal of becoming a leading and preferred supply partner for the composites sector,” stated Gareth Davies, Composites Evolution’s Commercial Manager.
To accompany the launch of the new prepregs, Composites Evolution will be undergoing a rebrand with an updated logo and website.
