Composites Ágora is a new space within Composites Madrid, created so that you can see first-hand the most innovative products made of composite materials, attend talks and enjoy networking moments.
Model SAE Formula
The Formula SAE model car is a testament to the company’s collaborative spirit and cutting-edge approach. This high-tech vehicle, designed and built by the E-Team Squadra Corse at the University of Pisa, uses Biesse Materia’s state-of-the-art machinery to manufacture key components in carbon fibre and wood. The combination of these materials allows for a lightweight and strong structure, while promoting sustainability in the automotive industry.

Fairmat has developed a virtuous recycling process capable of circularising the manufacture of carbon fibre composite materials (post-industrial and post-consumer parts), thus giving a second life to this high value-added material. Instead of shredding waste, we use proprietary high-tech cutting technologies, incorporating robotics and machine learning. This allows us to hold the fibres and resin together and preserve the length of the fibres, for mechanical performance superior to traditional recycling techniques.

Smart Paddle Racket
Nanomate padel bats are characterised by the incorporation of carbon nanofibres in the epoxy resin used, which translates directly into less curing time and, as a consequence, a reduction in the manufacturing costs of these sports products. In addition to these improvements, they make the blades more resistant and lighter, as well as reducing vibrations during play and improving the control and mechanical properties of these elements in the world of sport.

Composite test specimens for advanced characterisation
Specimens used for the basic characterisation of the elastic properties of composite materials (tensile and compression), on the one hand, and a typical quality control test such as the interlaminar strength test, on the other hand, are shown. Also presented are various specimens used for advanced characterisation including delamination and compact tension specimens, used to determine matrix and fibre toughness.

Exhibition piece made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic with a thickness of 4mm. Carbon fibre reinforced plastics have been manufactured for many years, and are lightweight, highly resistant and dimensionally stable composite materials. They are very popular in the aeronautics, aerospace, transport, sports, etc. industries.
This example opens a before and after in the possible applications of composites: art and design for exhibitions, museums, architecture/urban sculpture and many others.
