JEC World 2018: Diab Showcases Core Material Applications

27 February 2018

Diab is highlighting its contribution to two projects that have been nominated for this year’s JEC Innovation Awards.

Uljanik JSC’s SIEM Cicero is a 7000-car car carrier vessel that features GRP composite structures for three of its cargo decks. The key benefits include reduced fuel consumption, increased payload and reduced production lead time.

The second nomination, LOOP 650, is a sustainable cradle-to-cradle composite sailing boat that demonstrates industrial composite manufacturing technology. It is industrial ready, has cradle-to-cradle recycling and zero-landfill manufacturing, as well as low embodied energy.

“We are always looking into ways to improve our products and services and value the input from our customers, and I think that our recent awards show that we are on the right track,” says Roger Jansson, Group Product & Marketing Manager.

Diab will also be showcasing its latest core material product innovations and engineering services for a number of applications, including marine, aerospace, transport and wind energy.

Visit Diab in Hall 5A, Stand N39 at JEC World 2018.
