Composites Evolution Announces New Prepregging Business at JEC WORLD 2018

A new look Composites Evolution will be arriving in Paris (6th to the 8th of March 2018) to tell the world about several important changes to the business.

Since the inception of the company in 2009, people have known us best for our work advancing the use of bio-derived raw materials but we have also done a lot of work in the development of sector focussed applications utilising our materials. In the main, these projects have been largely in conjunction with materials such as carbon, basalt and glass fibres and to provide these materials in the format required we needed to make some changes.

So to meet the growing requirements of the fast-paced growth in the composites sector, we have been making significant investment in the business to create the platform, both in terms of our team and production infrastructure, that will allow us to continue to drive these industry-led developments forward, helping us move from niche supplier to a mainstream supply chain partner for these raw materials.

Supporting our clients and partners in the development of their applications is a key driver within our business but to do this we must continue to grow our know-how, guarantee the levels of support and provide the quality and scale of production capability required so that we become the preferred partner to deliver these solutions. So we have made some changes:

TEAM: We have been joined by Crispin Jones as our Prepreg Business Manager, Dr George Platt joins us from York University as Development Chemist and for the next few months, Alex Wells under the stewardship of the Royal Society of Chemistry. joins us on the development team.

PRODUCTS: We are launching the new Evopreg prepreg family which also includes a range of in-house formulated epoxy based prepregs for both component and tooling applications. Our old Ecopreg grades, prepregs with excellent FST performance, based on PFA (polyfurfuryl alcohol) will be renamed and incorporated under this new brand.

QUALITY: To ensure our clients can select us we have worked hard to formalise our systems in order gain our recent ISO9001:2015 accreditation which was granted just before we broke up for the Christmas break. We will be working with our customer over the next few months to update our supplier details on their systems.

LOCATION: We are currently in the process of moving into our new production facilities. Watch this space!

COMMUNICATION:  Our new look website has gone live for our Biotex, and Evopreg product ranges! Please ask us if you require further information.

We shall see you in Paris!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to stand S72 in Hall 6 at JEC World 2018 and talking about how we can help you.
