Video: Manufacturing the Future With Composites
CAMX 2018 showcased a video giving attendees a glimpse of the future through the eyes of the composites industry and illustrating the way advanced materials are being used to improve our lives.
One of the highlights from CAMX 2018 was a video that gave attendees a glimpse of the future through the eyes of the composites industry. It gives a great overview of how composites have the potential to continue improving our lives in so many areas from improving aging infrastructure to advancing transportation to renewable energy to aerospace. The video features Dave Cooper, VP, Glass Reinforcements at Owens Corning (Toledo, OH, US) and Leon Garoufalis, president & COO at Composites One (Arlington Heights, IL, US) discussing composites applications, innovations, sustainability, growth and the future of the industry.
A double vacuum-bag system and tight process control enable repeatable fiber volumes of 60 to 70 percent and improves consistency of infused laminates.
High strength at low weight remain the winning combination that propels composite materials into new arenas, but other properties are equally important. This article outlines the case for composites and introduces SourceBook's overview of the materials and processes used to make them.
Today’s myriad chemistry options enable formulators to tailor adhesives to customers' exact application requirements.
