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%.

CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with Magnum Venus Products and IACMI–The Composites Institute, are organising Advances in Wind Energy, a two-day workshop exploring advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.
