CEM, Composite Essential Materials, was established 3 years ago stemming from the success of Nida-Core. After 25 years as a leader in the industry for core materials, the name Nida-Core became quickly synonymous with lightweight, strong, rot-proof and composite solution.
In 2013, with an overwhelmingly awesome product portfolio, Maritsa and Nick Dan took over the business they had been a part of for the past 15 years. They are proud of their family owned business geared towards serving the world’s largest manufacturing companies and distributors without losing their dedicated approach.
Now based in Port St Lucie, Florida, CEM offers a complete source for cores in the US, reason why it is “an ideal Partner” says Nicolas Vernin, Product Manager - SAERfoam®, who carries on: “SAERTEX’ worldwide strategy is to offer, through its distributors, a local service with people specialized in Core Material”. SAERTEX, dedicated to its wind blade direct accounts, has been working for the past 6 months, exclusively with CEM promoting its SAERfoam® range, throughout the US market.
Nick Dan, CEO of CEM emphasizes, “Composite Essential Materials is proud to be the chosen strategic partner for SAERTEX in the US. Equally, we chose SAERTEX for their cutting edge innovation, professional staff, and stellar performance. Together, we will breathe life into composites solutions.”
The SAERTEX core material, SAERfoam, is one innovation process result which combines through-thickness glass fibre reinforcements with an ultra light foam to create an optimized core material for infusion, RTM and pultrusion processes.
The main advantage of SAERfoam is its ratio stiffness/weight for all major parts, flooring and decks. Therefore, SAERfoam is an ideal replacement of PVC, PET and balsa wood. It can be tailor-made and customized, is easy to cut, has excellent impact resistance and is compatible with all resins. Over the years, it has become a well-established solution in the marine and transportation industry based on Bureau Veritas and Germanisher Llyod’s Type Approvals.
For your records, and if you have not been in touch with us yet, SAERTEX and CEM will both be exhibiting SAERfoam at the CAMX show (27-29 Sept. 2016).
