People in Composites – March 2019
CW’s monthly roundup of people news in the composites industry.
CAMX 2018 preview: Norplex-Micarta
Norplex-Micarta (Postville, IA, US) is featuring its recently introduced EnableX, a continuous fiber prepreg that can be co-cured in a multimaterial molding system to produce near net shapes.
Webinar: Prepreg in compression molding
CompositesWorld is presenting a free Norplex-Micarta-sponsored webinar on Tuesday, March 13 at 2:00 pm EST titled, “Utilization of Continuous Fiber Prepreg in Compression Molding.”
Printed circuit boards: A mobile market
Glass fiber/epoxy prepregs have dominated the mammoth PCB market for decades. Will that continue in a time of great change?
Structural armor or armored structures?
Either way, antiballistics engineers seek structural integrity and ballistic deterrence from a single design.
Antiballistics: Composites in the cross hairs
An increasing quantity and variety of fiber/polymer solutions are stopping bullets and blast debris in armored ground vehicles and stationary structures.
Standing Up to Natural Disasters
Composites are answering the call for residential and commercial structures that can weather future "perfect storms."
Focus on Design: Composite adaptor board supports medical treatment
Carbon fiber/epoxy the only material choice in this critical X-ray application.
Hybrid Glass/Aramid Prepreg Beats Heat in Heavy Industrial Pump
In demanding environments like cement plants, rotary compressor pumps are used to move heavy fluids that contain significant amounts of particulate. Pumps have a rotating core fitted with sliding blades or “vanes,” which fits within a static cylinder – as the rotor spins during operation, centrifugal force causes the
Reinforced Plastics Mold New Niches In Electronics
For manufacturers and consumers, composites are protecting delicate circuitry and making devices more durable.
New Material Reduces Wear And Tear At Skate Parks
Countless numbers of people visit skate parks each day to practice jumps and have some fun, but all the friction from skateboard and skate tires, not to mention impacts from rider spills, takes its toll on ramps and half pipes. At Father Marinaro Skateboarding Park in Butler, Pa., for example, which opened in 2003,
