MMA adhesives in the marine industry

Efficiency, cost-effectiveness and performance are always keymotivators for industry developments.

Reinforced Plastics sat down with a representative of Boston Materials to learn about their Carbon Supercomposite.

Components in medium to high volume require lean manufacturing technologies that allow for efficient material usage and precise, reproducible production.

Production machines do not utilize the full diversity of composite materials, To exploit this diversity, production machines have to be flexible as well.

While maximum theoretical carbon yield for the carbonisation of viscose fibres is 44%, in reality the carbon yield is just in the range of 20%.

A breakthrough technology from the Technical University of Munich makes it possible to produce carbon fiber without any fossil materials.

Bio-based polymers, plastics and biocomposites can offer more sustainable materials with a lower environmental footprint and reduced carbon footprint.

Jagan Mohan Raj – Innovation Director, RPC bpi recycled products outlines a different approach to the use of recycled polymers.

Reinforced Plastics spoke with Christoph Geyer from SAERTEX about their materials and their impact.

Bcomp, a Swiss company specialized in lightweighting, used natural fiber composites to make innovative skis.

This article reviews what Industry 4.0 is, what it means for composites, and how far technology has already come in the sector.

A new coupling agent has been especially developed to improve the fiber-matrix adhesion in carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP).

Long fiber thermoplastics expand into traditional composite market areas.

Advances in machine technology and improvements in materials are progressing the use of additive manufacturing in the composites market.

How professional 3D Printing and Windform® GT material helped in the construction of drone and medical devices.

Carbon fiber plastics reinforced no longer have to be incinerated or sent to landfill but can be recycled and reused.

An effective composite should be able to optimize the properties of the individual components as one.

Composite materials allow the replacement of traditional materials and provide more options allowing higher design freedom to designers.

New materials create higher-performing components. This can be seen with materials such as composites for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
