As Seen In CompositesWorld

Armor Update: Reinforced elastomeric composite blast barrier
A new, flexible, lightweight, portable debris shield holds promise for protecting building occupants in military zones.

DuPont to cease Kevlar production in South Carolina
The company will transition the Kevlar manufacturing operations in South Carolina to its Virginia site.

FRP charge-air cooler stands up underhood
Injection molded glass/PA streamlines turbocharger intake manifold build.

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2017)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs

Composites tackle concussions
The launch of the first commercial composite football helmet and new research thrusts show FRPs could play a critical role in mitigating head injuries.

Composites extend service of oil and gas pipelines
Corrosion-resistant aramid fiber/thermoplastic liner gives new life to deteriorating steel subsea pipelines.

Cobham Composites: San Diego, CA, US
An aerocomposites force since the dawn of the 1980s, this fabricator’s Big Idea is to move from quality control to in-situ process control on the strength of metrics powered by Big Data.

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2015)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs.

The fiber (2015)
The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.

SPE ACCE 2014 report
Automotive composites still on the horizon — are they getting closer?

Airframers vie for shares in growing short-haul market
OEMs of aircraft with 150 or fewer seats exploit composites’ appeal to fuel efficiency-conscious regional air carriers.

Hyperbaric chamber: Portable, pliable FRP handles pressure
Groupe Médical Gaumond Inc. (GMG, Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada) premieres HematoCare, its portable, collapsible composite hyperbaric chamber.

2014 JEC Europe Review
The composites world met again in Paris, vibrant, stronger, and more forward-looking than ever before.

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers
Manufacturers of carbon and other advanced fibers respond to sustained composites industry growth with new fiber production capacity.

DuPont details new Nomex XF flame barrier
DuPont's Nomex XF meets the latest FAA FAR 25.856 (a) and (b) regulations, with more stringent requirements aimed at improving protection against fire intrusion into aircraft interior cabins.

HPC's 20th Anniversary: Thanks to HPC’s charter advertisers
Every trade publication lives and dies by its advertisers, and those who had the gumption to ante up for HPC’s premier issue are listed here and those who are still with us (see page numbers below) are gratefully recognized with the HPC 20th Anniversary Medallion.

Cast polymer categories
The cast polymer industry is multifaceted. Its many products, however, can be grouped into three general categories, differentiated by the materials and manufacturing methods used to make them.

Industrial corrosion control: Huge opportunities
Fiber-reinforced plastic is the ideal but still widely ignored option in environments that eat away at most metal alloys. Opportunities abound, but the key is still education.

High-temp thermoplastics: Higher Expectations
As the drive to greater fuel efficiency under the hood catches fire, fiber-reinforced thermoplastics prove they can take the heat.

Nanocomp, DuPont form strategic partnership
Nanocomp Technologies, a manufacturer of products made from carbon nanotubes, has entered into a financial and strategic development relationship with DuPont, which will use the material in its ballistics protection business.
