All composite ship doors and hatches are certified.
W8SVR (HUESKER Synthetic GmbH)
W8SVR Neolaminates are continuous-fibre-reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composites, developed as a refinement of organosheets. They are lighter and more efficient through the use of so-called “UD tapes”, i.e. pre-stretched continuous fibres unidirectionally arranged in a polymer matrix. Neolaminates lend themselves to mass production thanks to their short cycle times. They are particularly useful for accommodating complex and deep geometries and can be tailored to requirements using near-net-shape fabrication technology.”
