NetComposites’ world-leading technology business undertakes assignments in the following areas of composite materials:
- Materials research & development
- Process development
- Prototypes and pre-production moulding
NetComposites provides research, consultancy, training and information services to the composite materials industry. Our activities are organised into three areas:
Technology: research, development, prototyping and testing of innovative composite materials and their associated manufacturing technologies in our 700 square metre development centre. We have process equipment for compression moulding, prepregging, injection moulding, vacuum forming and resin infusion, as well as materials testing machines and component fabrication facilities.
Insight: live online training, classroom based courses, conferences, seminars and workshops on a broad range of composites topics. We also produce market reports, technology roadmaps, foresighting studies and best practice guides.
Information: this site provides access to a wealth of composites information including technology guides, the latest industry news, an events calendar, a glossary, an industry directory and jobs listings. Each week we distribute a composites industry newsletter to more than 15,000 individuals.
Our experience covers the breadth of composite material technologies, applications and business issues, and companies use us to create innovative composite products and processes, or to advise on trends in the future of the industry.

As part of the Ecogel Cronos FP7 funded project, NetComposites will take delivery of a new RTM tool which utilises a proprietary heated skin system for curing powder-based gel coats. Supplied by Composites Integration, the tooling system will allow the development of quicker TAKT times for RTM parts, with a project target of only 4 minutes.
