Stand No. T50 in Hall 1 at JEC 2009 will bring together the total product offering of Umeco Composites Structural and Process Materials, including Advanced Composites Group Ltd. (ACG), J.D. Lincoln, GRP Material Supplies and Aerovac Richmond.

ACG will exhibit a range of technologies and applications. The first will be ACG’s DForm Deformable Composite System (DCS) for tooling. Following market testing, new custom-built processing equipment has now been installed at ACG’s Heanor manufacturing facility to further enhance the product and to accelerate productivity rates to satisfy anticipated market demand. This equipment will also facilitate further development of the concept for structural applications.

ACG will also exhibit its Out-Of-Autoclave (OOA) aerospace prepreg technology, aproved by Airbus in late 2008. To demonstrate the application of this technology, ACG will display a wing box for the Dasualt Falcon, manufactured as part of the ALCAS multi-partner programme.

To demonstrate its expertise in the ballistics arena, ACG will also exhibit a spall liner manufactured at Permali Gloucester Limited using a hot press moulding technique with ACG’s MTM82 Phenolic resin/S2-Glass® prepreg. The moulded shape provides improved interior coverage, thus increasing the protected area while reducing overall component weight. The materials and process are now used in full-scale production, and parts have been supplied for fitment to an in-service fleet of vehicles.

The centre-piece of the stand will be the Banshee drone, manufactured by Meggitt Composites, featuring prepreg from ACG throughout its construction.
