As the architectural world becomes more and more familiar with composite materials and the benefits they can bring, architects, consultants and engineers are now more likely than ever to select a composite material solution for a roof, façade, dome or other structural component.
Notus prepregs and resin films are extensively used in the marine sector and offer shipyards and boat builders a full range of composite solutions for their tooling and production requirements.
Robust epoxy resin based prepregs for the Wind Energy market are one of the core business areas for Notus. The company qualified its NE5 resin system with Vestas in 2015 and has shipped hundreds of tonnes of prepreg materials to overseas clients.
Notus prepregs, with their excellent mechanical properties and wide range of cure temperatures, are well suited for the manufacture of all sorts of sports and leisure equipment.
The reduction of vehicle weight, often referred to as lightweighting, in the automotive industry is primarily driven by legislation to reduce CO2 emissions.
Light weight composite components, that can provide resistance to fire and harsh operating conditions as well as strong mechanical performance, are now able to replace traditional metallic solutions in several key industrial market sectors.
Composite materials are already widely used in railway applications, with the benefits of cost effective light weight, corrosion resistant parts being well understood, particularly in the interiors of railway carriages.
With the ever-increasing demand for lightweight composite solutions in all aerospace sectors, Notus are well positioned to offer both Phenolic and Epoxy prepreg materials to this market.
