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.
Live Online Training - 8th July @ 15:00 UK, 16:00 CET, 10:00 EDT

As part of the EC funded project Ecogel Cronos, NetComposites has created a bespoke powder spray coating booth and installed spray coating equipment suitable for the application of the new materials. The new eco-friendly powder coating for composite parts, will help to eliminate unpleasant styrene emissions normally associated with the gel-coating process. Currently the performance of the coatings is being analysed in preparation for their final use in the project where they will be applied to automotive demonstrator parts.
