New ceramic coating allows composites to be used in high temperature environments   Print  
Zircotec can optimize the coating both through thickness and across a surface to offer the optimum weight/temperature production possible Friday, 6th June 2008

Motorsport, aerospace and military applications to benefit from the opportunity to prevent composite delamination in high temperature environments

A new ceramic thermal barrier technology will allow high strength, lightweight materials to be used in high temperature environments for which they have previously been unsuitable. Believed to be the only product of its type available commercially, the process is so effective it allows composites to function in temperatures above their melting point; testing for a typical application gave a reduction in composite surface temperature of more than 125ºC. The new process, for which a patent application has been filed, offers the opportunity to “engineer” the coating to suit specific customer requirements, adjusting the coating properties both through-thickness and across the surface of a component to cope with “hot spots” and differing forms of heat transfer such as radiant, conductive or convective heating. This new coating allows significant thermal protection with only minimal weight gain.

Annual survey highlights shift in logistical issues   Print  
The annual client survey by emergency automotive logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical Friday, 9th May 2008

The annual client survey by emergency automotive logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical has highlighted a noticeable shift in the issues affecting European logistical operations. The results reflect the way the automotive market is evolving as managing director Brad Brennan explains

"It is a well known fact that to offer a really effective service, you have to take a lead from the market you serve," Brennan explains. "Last year, our annual survey of emergency logistics issues in the European automotive industry indicated a few interesting facts. Due to the inherent complexity of automotive manufacturing processes, it was no surprise that production delays accounted for more than a fifth of the calls for emergency logistics.
