UK composites sector receives £10 million investment

The National Composites Centre (NCC) will receive a £10 million Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) investment announced by Universities and Science Minister Jo Johnson. The funding given to the Universities of Nottingham and Bristol to anchor composites manufacturing research in the UK is for the Future Composites Manufacturing Hub (FCM Hub). The aim is to develop the next generation of composites technologies and train the people required to deliver those innovations. The grant which comes to support the FCM Hub has the target of delivering research outputs to enable “Moore’s law for composites," a doubling in production capability every two years for high performance polymer composites. The FCM Hub will also train the next generation of composites manufacturing engineers.

Bamboo composites for construction

The market for fibre-reinforced polymer reinforcing bars (rebars) is expected to grow at 11.4% a year in the next five years, but for this market materials such as glass and carbon are expensive as an alternative to metals.

As a potentially new product, researchers at Singapore Republic Polytechnic, working with ETH Zürich in Switzerland, have been developing a new adhesive for maximizing the bonding between bamboo composites and concrete. The work was recognised with an Innovation Award at the recent JEC Asia exhibition held from November 15-17 in Singapore.

Ceramic matrix composites take flight in LEAP jet engine

Ceramic matrix composites take flight in LEAP jet engine | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

Ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials are made of coated ceramic fibers surrounded by a ceramic matrix. They are tough, lightweight and capable of withstanding temperatures 300–400 degrees F hotter than metal alloys can endure. If certain components were made with CMCs instead of metal alloys, the turbine engines of aircraft and power plants could operate more efficiently at higher temperatures, combusting fuel more completely and emitting fewer pollutants.

Aliancys Proposes Innovative Method to Recycling Fiberglass | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

In its newest brochure for customers, Aliancys provides insight into co-processing, a recycling option for glass fiber reinforced thermoset composite materials.

Co-processing is the simultaneous use of composite regrind as raw material and as a source of energy in cement manufacturing, replacing natural mineral resources (material recycling) and fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum and gas (energy recovery). In this process, the composite regrind used for co-processing is both an alternative fuel and a raw material.
