Spheretex will launch its latest product development Sphere.core PSI, a core material for making light and stiff FRP laminates using closed mould processes.
It is a glass fibre-based core material with an internal high-quality flow medium which leads to a steady and fast resin impregnation. Overall part costs could be reduced due to savings in disposable flow media and working time. The core material is an alternative for making light laminates of excellent surface quality – even when applying high vacuum.
“We listen to our customers and take their requests seriously," says Managing Director Christoph Esser. "For this reason we developed Sphere.core PSI, a core material meeting the requirements that many FRP producers were asking for.”
Sphere.core PSI is available in 2-5 mm thickness and is suitable for infusion and injection processes such as VIP, LRTM and RTM. It is compatible with common unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins.

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.
