As Seen In Plastics Technology

Quickstep's fast-cycle composite tooling

Composites: New Rapid Molding Technologies and Unusual Reinforcements at Paris JEC Show
New molding technologies seen at the JEC Composites Show in Paris in April promise dramatically faster cycles than are achievable with autoclaves or RTM. One novel technique rapidly heats and cools a thin tool by "floating" it on a flexible bladder—similar to a water bed—that is flooded with heat-transfer fluid.

Basalt fiber

Lava-Based Fibers Reinforce Composites
Reinforcing fibers spun from basalt lava rock were one of the more unusual developments exhibited at the JEC Composites Show in Paris in April.
