Cecence’s (stand Q100) focus at this year’s Advanced Engineering show will be on its latest developments in sustainable composites.
The company’s growing range of sustainable recycled and natural fibre products offer an exciting and timely glimpse into the future of composite materials and manufacturing.
Cecence is known for its ability to build FST compliance into core structures enabling unprecedented design freedom for lightweight composites for the aerospace and rail interiors sectors. Its proprietary pre-form and low energy rapid processing and RMRA (Right Material Right Application) philosophy allows a portfolio of low embodied carbon products to be selected for each user.
Bio-based and phenolic resin systems can be combined with a selection of reinforcements from carbon and glass through to recycled and natural fibres enabling the lightweight sustainable materials of tomorrow for the aerospace cabin or rail carriage of the future.
The technology gains and processing methodologies from Cecence’s work in aerospace is now being transferred through to construction and interiors with a range of lightweight sustainable structures utilising hemp fibres harnessed within a bio-based binder. The company is working with a number of high-profile architects on integrating building materials that sequester CO2, both in their growth and once the building is in situ, locking in carbon and reducing the environmental impact of construction.
With the Advanced Engineering show neatly dovetailing with COP26 there is an opportunity to promote a better understanding of the circularity of new materials from feedstock, through processing and distribution, and end of life. As part of the SME Climate Hub, Cecence is committed to bringing about positive change through the development and production of the net zero composite products of the future.
