CST has many years of experience working with a diverse range of composites and we only ever use the best quality materials. We have found that not only will higher quality materials give the customer better performance and longevity, it means that we can process these materials in a more efficient manner during the manufacturing process.

Resin Development

CST has its own in-house resin chemist to develop speciality resin systems to meet customers needs. To support this capability, our resin development laboratory houses the following equipment: Netzsche Polyma 214 Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) for Tg characterisation, Microscopy with automated sample mounting and polishing, Instrom materials tester, Brookfield viscometer.

Batch tracking

All of our materials are batched during the production process using the CST Metrix™ proprietary software system.
