NEW PRESS RELEASE: SUCCESSFUL TRADE SHOW ATTENDANCE AT JEC WORLD 2017 – HIGH DEMAND FOR SAERTEX CARBON MATERIALS
SAERTEX® draws positive results from the company's attendance at JEC World, the leading international trade fair for composites, which took place in Paris from March 14 to 16, 2017. The exhibited lightweight carbon construction solutions were, in particular, received with keen interest by visitors from all over the world.
This year SAERTEX enthralled its visitors with innovative products and examples of their use, such as the Candela hydrofoil speed boat, the new Lamborghini Huracán, or rotor blades made with CFRP elements for the wind power sector. Compared to steel, carbon is 80 percent lighter and exhibits excellent mechanical properties. CFRP plays a key role in lightweight construction – carbon, the material of the future.
Here, SAERTEX has achieved major technological progress over the past few years to make the material more efficient and facilitate the use of carbon non-crimp fabrics in a wide variety of applications. Large numbers of visitors came to the SAERTEX booth and attended the live presentations at the SPEAKERS' CORNER to obtain information on new innovations and receive advice from the material engineers at the Saerbeck-based global market leader.
The show was not only a resounding success for SAERTEX: The show’s organizers, the JEC Group, reported an increase of up to 10% in the number of visitors this year. Lightweight construction materials are the present trend, in particular in transportation, the construction industry, and in the marine sector.Here you will find the detailed press release.
