Integran Technologies and Advanced Composites Group (ACG) have entered into a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) for advanced carbon fibre composite (CFC) tooling solutions based upon Integran’s Nanovar technology platform.

Nanovar is a low thermal expansion, very hard metal coating that increases surface hardness of carbon fibre composites by 15 times, adding durability and longevity to tools resulting in significantly reduced manufacturing costs. “ACG’s expertise in tool design and thermoset resin technology, and their market position as the leading supplier of pre-impregnated composite tooling materials will significantly shorten the time to market for this advanced tooling technology” said Frank Cotter, Chief Operating Officer of Integran.

ACG provides a range of advanced composite tooling solutions, from innovative tool design through to a variety of novel LTM and HTM material formats. Jon Mabbitt, Managing Director of ACG, said “ACG is very proud of its reputation for innovation and expanding the composite tooling market. Our collaboration with Integran on Nanovar is a natural progression and we see great potential once the technology is fully developed for production”
