Notus Composites, based in United Arab Emirates, says that it has made its final shipment of fire retardant (FR) epoxy prepreg to be used in Dubai’s Museum of the Future.

According to Notus, over 600,000 m2 of prepreg materials have been supplied for the building’s external façade panels. The museum, which will focus on design and innovation, also features 1024 cladding panels built using a combination of Notus’ multiaxial glass and carbon prepregs. The EPFR-609 prepregs and NE11FR surfacing films have been approved by the Dubai Civil Defence (DCD), the company said.
