Composite applications in the industrial sector have broadened greatly over the past few decades. In addition to being strong and light, composite materials can be resistant to chemical erosion and designed for virtually zero thermal expansion. When the application is needed certain glass fibers can be used to design components that are electrically inert. Carbon fiber materials have superior fatigue and lower vibration properties when compared to steel. This greatly improves the performance and life span of parts such as industrial rollers and structural tubing.
From high-tech structural elements to aesthetic components, ICE's industrial division utilizes table rolling, bladder molding and press molding production processes to manufacture a diverse group of products ranging from a few parts per year to thousands per week. A wide range of resin matrices are combined with the ability to orient pre-impregnated materials in any angle to design the best solution both mechanically and chemically for the application at hand.
