Saving the world one tube at a time…

By All News, Industrial News

Saving the world one tube at a time…

Final QC for impact energy absorption tubes on their way to North America today.
When we make sailing masts and structural tubes, we attempt to make a strong, durable product that will stand up to a regular beating and won’t delaminate.

Our energy-absorbing products are quite the opposite! We design them to delaminate and create a maximum surface area at a threshold load to absorb the energy of an impact.
Nice to think our composites could save someone’s life.

CST & ANSTO

By All News

Terrific morning hosting members of the management team from the Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO) at our Sydney plant.

CEO of ANSTO, Adi Paterson and his colleagues were impressed by CST’s capabilities and vision. It’s exciting times with both organisations preparing to collaborate closely over the coming years, as CST Composites looks to transition to a new state of the art facility within the ANSTO Innovation Precinct in southern Sydney and support the nandin incubator for innovative technology start-ups.

‘nandin’ is a word from the dialect of the local indigenous Dharawal people meaning ‘looking ahead’.

Congrats to Archie Massey, I14 European Championship

By All News, Marine News

Congrats to CST Team Sailor, Archie Massey along with Harvey Hillary on their 2nd placing at the 2019 International European Championships in Germany, having only just launched their new boat.

The latest CST HM4 mast and 100mm rectangular boom onboard proved to be a powerful combo, providing plenty of speed, even with an old set of Alexander Sails. Not surprising given the spars were based on designs Archie used to win his previous World championship.

The Team at Ovington – high performance sail boats are in the process of building several new 14’s, with Archie’s one of the first to hit the water… Exciting to think there could be still more potential to unleash!

 

Click https://www.ovingtonboats.com/index…/…/international-69.html to explore their range.

Bring on the International 14 Worlds in Perth, where Archie will be looking for another title with brand new Alexander Sails and CST rig!
