New Regulations for Composite Materials Worth ... - Composites UK27 Apr 2017 ... A new report published by the University of Southampton calls for industry and government to work closely together to put an end to the constraints that currently inhibit the growth and use of composite materials in marine, Rail, Oil & Gas, and Construction. According to the position paper 'Modernising composite materials regulations', the introduction of effective regulation in the use of composites in these, and other new sectors, could bring more than £4bn worth of ...

Marine | Composites UKRacing yachts use composites more extensively than any other marine structure. The materials used are not typical of marine construction because of special requirements. Minimal weight and maximum stiffness are crucially important in their design so that they can sail with maximal speed and resistance to the impact of waves and other elements in marine environments. Carbon fibre reinforced epoxy composites are usually used in boat hulls cored with honeycomb or foam, frames, ...

Marine Sector Showcase | Composites UKThe next composites uk sector showcase event takes place on 11th October 2017 in Southampton, looking at the use of composite materials in marine applications. Fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) have been used successfully in marine applications for several decades in areas such as radomes and mass structures, super yachts, work boats and leisure craft. More recently FRPs have been used in less well known applications such as bearings, propellers, commercial ...
