Graphenano Composites will present pultruded profiles incorporating graphene during JEC World.
Graphene improves the mechanical characteristics of conventional profiles. Thanks to this carbon nanomaterial, polyester profiles can equal or exceed the mechanical strength of higher cost resins, increasing the ultimate tensile strength by more than 30% when compared with standard GRP profiles, the company reports. Graphene reduces weight but retains the same mechanical characteristics without influencing durability.
Graphenano Composites is attending JEC World with pultruder Polymec, which manufactures and markets the graphene profiles. The two companies offer a wide range of profiles under the trade name CompoSmart.
Graphenano Composites will also showcase the boat Graphenano One, which incorporates graphene in its structure, helping to reduce weight by more than 20%.

IMM CarraraFiere, creator and organiser of Seatec, the exhibition dedicated to technology, components, design and subcontracting for the yachting industry, has entered into a wide range of collaborations with the main associations and trade organisations of the respective sectors to increase the relationships between customers and suppliers, and cultural institutions and industry.
At the 2019 JEC Composites show, 12-14 March 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, CGTech will demonstrate how advanced programming strategies and simulation can lead to better composite parts.
The harsh environment protection benefits of GRP-based enclosures are now available for hundreds of new outdoor applications with the launch of new Type 4X certified enclosures and cabinets from Intertec.
