Ilium Composites, which has its headquarters in Bahrain, will showcase its ULTImat and FLEXmat reinforcements, Amplify surface veils and binder-free chopped strand mats (CSM) at the International Composites Summit (ICS) taking place at the ILEC Conference Centre in London from September 21-22.
The company’s composite reinforcements, are manufactured using novel technology without stitching or using chemical binders. The CSM product range can be used with multiple matrices, including polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy and polyurethane, enabling them to be used as initial protective layers in marine hulls, hard tops, and any applications requiring water and chemical protection.
Carded and thermally bounded PES Amplify veils can be used as standalone products or be mechanically bonded to ULTImat, FLEXmat and CSM reinforcements. The veils reduce the appearance of glass fibres on gelcoats and provide corrosion protection to pultruded composite parts.
The business development manager Colin Leatham-Locke, said“We are eager to support the efforts of the International Composites Summit in promoting composite innovation and development,” He further said, “Our range of products is sold globally, but the UK is an important market for the progression of our composite reinforcement technology.”
