Interview with Paul Walsh, Ascent Aerospace Tooling Group

Reinforced Plastics spoke with Paul Walsh from Ascent Aerospace about its composite tooling technology and its application in the aerospace industry.

High volume composites for the automotive challenge

Material manufacturers are finding new ways to combine the benefits of composites with the need for high volume production.

From the dawn of civilization, carbon black has been a component of humankind’s tool chest.

Delft University of Technology and the University of North Carolina are researching nanofillers like nanotubes and graphene in high performance polymers.

The application of ultrasonic guided waves (UGW) to the field of preventive maintenance of composite structures is in continuous increase.

Lightweight parts are of interest for many industries, first among them the automotive sector, but also transport and logistics.

A new report from Textile Media Services suggests this is the ‘make-or-break’ decade for carbon fiber composites in vehicles.

Composite body armor protects a wide range of civilians from security guards to police officers and from bailiffs to VIPs.

Liz Nickels looks back at the groundbreaking composite commercial spacecraft eleven years on.

Carbon fiber offers a great many performance and lightweighting benefits for composites.

Michael Tolinski provides an excerpt from the 2015 second edition of his book Additives for Polyolefins, available from Elsevier.

As a rule, predicting the future should only be done in the privacy of your own mind, or if need be: verbally.

Carbon fiber manufacturers are adding production capacity to meet an increasing number of high performance applications.

An innovative building technique using stackable, sand reinforced polyester bricks could speed up the construction process.

A growing environmental problem and the increasing scarcity of non-renewable resources are heavily modifying our habits.

Automotive manufacturers around the world are turning to proven suppliers to deliver new ideas as well as new materials.

Now is the time to make the change from metal to composites in naval shipbuilding
