As Seen In CompositesWorld

The markets: Corrosion-resistance (2014)
The annual cost of metallic corrosion worldwide is staggering. Composites continue to provide solutions

Wind blades: Pi preforms increase shear web failure load
Easily coinfused structural joint increases ultimate strength and fatigue life, offering solutions for designers as blades get longer and move offshore.

Underground storage tanks: Rehabilitation without excavation
An unusual “lost-core” composite adds double walls protection to noncompliant tanks without excavation.

High-Performance Fibers 2011 Conference Highlights
CompositesWorld’s annual specialty fibers forum focuses on refining performance.

3-D preforms: Fast, efficient blade-root manufacture
To expedite the blade root manufacturing process for wind turbine blade manufacturers, 3TEX Inc. (Cary, N.C.) has developed RapidRoot, a 3-D preform.

Heavy-duty infusion: Scaling up for scrubbers
Infused 3-D woven fabric preforms best steel in beams and unitized deck structures built for the caustic confines of massive flue gas desulfurization systems.

3-D woven reinforcements update
Suppliers make progress toward reinforcement preforms that exhibit comparable properties in the x, y and z axes.

Antiballistics: Better defense, less expense
Armor applications grow on the strength of new markets, new composite materials.

Wind Blade Manufacturing: Cost-efficient materials-based strategies
The wind blade’s four key elements — the root, the spar, the aerodynamic shell or fairing, and the surfacing system — have present unique manufacturing challenges that must be met with carefully selected composite material systems and molding strategies.

Engineering Insights: All-Composite Hovercraft Rises to Performance Challenge
An exclusive look at a lightweight pultruded and resin-infused design that sets a new standard for amphibious craft.

IBEX 2006 Boat Show Showcase
Composites and composite molding processes make strong statement in Miami.
