Sogel (Longueuil, QC, Canada) is launching two products, AQUAGUARD chlorine-resistant pool gelcoat, and SUNGUARD high-performance paint-like weather resistant coating for composites. AQUAGUARD resists weather, blush, blistering and chlorine. It also offers good crack resistance at demold, with strong abrasion resistance. It is available in whites and custom colors. SUNGUARD, for transportation and marine parts, provides blush and blister resistance similar to most standard ISO/NPG gelcoats, along with its good automotive paint-like weather resistance. AQUAGUARD and SUNGUARD are low-VOC coatings that meet MACT compliance and can be applied with standard equipment on composite tooling.

    ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.
