Michelman announces partnerships with EFT and Mafic
This past week, Michelman announced that it will partner with Engineered Fibers Technology LLC (EFT, Shelton, CT, US) and with Mafic (Kells, County Meath, Ireland and Shelby, NC, US) to increase the performance and surface characteristics of its fibers and composites.

Plant Tour: FiberCore Europe, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
From debond-proof bridges to cost-saving infrastructure rehab, InfraCore technology is establishing composites as the fourth major construction material.

Durable composite pallet comes to market
Selective reinforcements paired with commodity materials, plus long-term partnerships, make this pallet concept a winner.

The fiber (2017)
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.

Can basalt fiber bridge the gap between glass and carbon?
When I started writing about composites in the way, way back, industry innovator Brandt Goldsworthy was still alive. His article on basalt fiber was one of the most-read columns in the old Composites Technology book, and there seems to be a lot of interest in this alternative performance fiber. Mafic SA is a new player in the basalt fiber market.

CAMX 2015 preview: Mafic
Mafic SA (Woodbridge, ON, Canada), founded in 2012, is a manufacturer of continuous and chopped basalt fiber and Hoplite long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) resins for composite fabrication.
