Advanced composites specialist Gurit (Isle of Wight, UK)) announced on Nov. 13 the launch of Ampreg 31 and Ampreg 36 epoxy resins and ancillaries. The new products complement Gurit’s Ampreg 30 epoxy, which was recognized with the 2018 Composites UK Innovation in Materials Award. Featuring a robust resin matrix, the Ampreg line reportedly enables good mechanical and thermal properties of laminates for the manufacture of large composite structures in the marine, wind and construction industries. The new resins use the same Ampreg 30 hardeners, all applying the same simple mix ratio, and the ability to blend hardeners to achieve a range of intermediate working times. According to Gurit, the new Ampreg resins and ancillaries prioritize user health and safety. Ampreg 31 and Ampreg 36 feature light-reflective technology (LRT) for easy inspection of workwear, equipment and workspace for potential resin contamination by means of standard UV lamps.

    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.

  • Fiber reinforcement forms

    Fibers used to reinforce composites are supplied directly by fiber manufacturers and indirectly by converters in a number of different forms, which vary depending on the application. Here's a guide to what's available.

  • The matrix

    The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here’s a guide to selection.
