Diab/CCG and Aquarius Shipyard win prestigious prize at Icerp

24 January, 2017

The ICERP-JEC Innovation Award within the Marine segment goes to Diab/CCG and Aquarius Shipyard for innovative use of a single shot resin infusion process with stiffeners for the hull and deck or all kinds of vessels.

Together, the two companies have worked to design and realise the 3D infused boat in India for the first time. According to Aquarius Shipyard, there are numerous benefits to the core infusion process. All types of boats can be infused using this process and it has won the shipyard a large number of government orders. The production of larger components has been made easier and the VOC emissions are extremely low. The mold cycle times have been substantially shortened and there are high fiber fractions and good skin/core bonding. In addition, there are substantial weight savings and production has been made easier since it is possible to produce components in a consistent and repeatable way.

ICERP is one of the most important events of the Indian composites industry. Organized by the FRP Institute once every two years, it is one of the biggest events on composites in India and Asia. An Innovation Award Program was initiated in 2008 by the FRP Institute and JEC group to promote innovations on composites carried out in India. The program encourages Indian composites professionals and companies to create value for their customers and also brings recognition, not only in India but also internationally.
