  • ALUCOBOND in "Wohnungswirtschaft heute" ...

    28.11.2012

    The house at Wundtstraße 7 in Dresden, Germany belongs to a complex of six residential buildings, each with fifteen storeys, that was built at the beginning of the 1970s in prefabricated concrete-slab construction. For enabling continued use of the building, a general renovation and modernisation was necessary. This was carried out at house number 7 in 2008 and 2009. The facade was clad in ALUCOBOND® in two different, silver-metallic colours. By keeping to the previous window sizes and layout, a punctuated façade with a three-dimensional effect is created by the colour contrast and the geometric assembly of the composite panels, together with the differentiated, offset arrangement of the window frames. The structural effect of light and shadow is accentuated by emphasizing the window frames on the one hand, and by the depth offset between the outer cladding and inner window plane on the other. When walking or driving past, the outer shell of the building presents a continuously changing image. Depending on the viewing angle and the sun’s position, the geometric forms of the window frames that are partly surrounded in bright red, appear in varying degrees of intensity on the individual facade surfaces...

  • 100% low-floor streetcars for CNR ...

    21.11.2012

    After many years when high speed was the top priority, the focus in China now – as a result of increasing urbanization – is more on local public transport. As a result of collaboration with a German engineering partner which has developed a 100% low-floor streetcar for CNR, and thanks to our stronger presence in China, Airex Composite Structures had the opportunity to produce the heated floor system COMFLOOR and certain roof components for this vehicle. The first batch of vehicles will be supplied from Switzerland, but all future vehicles will be made at our 3A Composites Ltd factories in China.

    The deciding factors in the placing of this contract were the leading position occupied by Airex Composite Structures in these two product segments and the fact that we would be able to implement local production quickly in our Chinese production network in the Shanghai and Guangzhou regions.

    CNR China North Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation Limited is a state-owned company based in Beijing, with 20 production sites spread right across China and 90,000 employees. Every year, CNR produces and maintains about 1,100 light rail vehicles and subway trains, 1,000 trains and locomotives, 2,300 passenger cars and 26,000 freight cars. This meets nearly half the country’s total requirement.

  • 3A Composites launches new AIREX® and BALTEK® core materials ...

    19.03.2012

    3A Composites has developed a pioneering new sealing technology offering a dramatic reduction of resin uptake of the infused core material. While this reduction is above 50% for their AIREX® T90 and T92 cores, it is reported to be above 80% for their BALTEK® SB and SBC balsa cores. Depending on sandwich design, resin uptake can constitute around 15% up to 40% of the infused core materials’ total costs.

    This substantial resin saving is not only highly welcomed with regard to costs, it also translates into a remarkable weight reduction. Contrary to common understanding, PET-cored sandwiches can now become lighter than PVC solutions thanks to this new AIREX® SealX technology, thus bringing lightweight design to a new level...
