The winners of JEC Innovation Awards were named at JEC World 2016

The best composite solutions were chosen in 24 categories ranging from raw materials to processes, and to applications in various fields. The winning projects originate from Europe, America and Asia, and cover such fields of application as Aeronautics, Automotive, Medical, Consumer Goods etc.

Carrying out expert evaluations and updating business plans and feasibility studies of investment projects for the production of continuous basalt fiber, staple fiber and basalt composite products.

Here are just some of them.

The winner in the RTM category (resin transfer molding) is CAVUS technology: producing a complex hollow composite structure using a high-volume production process. It combines optimum fiber positioning with a unique molding process to produce multi-function, high-performance structural parts without the use of adhesives.

The technology is presented by KTM Technologies GmbH from Austria in partnership with H2K Minerals GmbH (Germany), TEUFELBERGER Composite Ges.m.b.H. (Austria), and BASF Polyurethanes GmbH.

Huntsman Advanced Materials (Switzerland) is the winner in category Thermoset Resins: structural epoxy parts with autoclave quality in less than 1 minute.

A high-performance thermoset resin developed by Huntsman Advanced Materials, when combined with an innovative molding process, can meet the stringent specifications of the automotive and consumer goods markets. The jury awarded this promise of high-performance, resistant products for everyday use.

Innovative 3D net-shape layup process for the manufacture of aircraft CFRP door frame structures became the winner in Category Aeronautics. This technology was developed by German company which has confirmed a trend of ever-increasing number of composites on board aircraft. Some of the latest models of aircraft were made using over 50% composite materials.
