Dark Matter Composites and Composites UK offer new seminar on dust risks

Following on from two successful events in 2016, Dark Matter Composites, a training and consultancy services provider to the composites industry, and Composites UK are again teaming up to provide a seminar on risks, generation, capture and control measures for both carbon and glass fibre dust.

The event takes place on 25 April 2017 at Dark Matter Composites’ facility in Redbourn, Hertfordshire, and builds upon the growing information contained in the Composites UK online Health and Safety Management System (HSMS), giving a more detailed insight into this particular issue.

Extensive experience

Dark Matter Composites has extensive experience in designing and supplying extraction solutions and as a long standing member of Composites UK offers its support to the health and safety initiative offered by the Association by sharing its experiences.

In 2016, 20 companies attended these events. Philip Spinks, CEO of Oxford Advanced Surfaces, who was one of the delegates said: “The main issue with dust control I’ve found is managing your process correctly to minimise its impact and the cost it incurs to deal with what’s left. I very much enjoyed the course, it was concise and got the key points across well.”

John McGregor, HS&E Officer for the Rolls-Royce CTAL Facility, also attended: “I learned a lot from my time on the course. The handout slides were very comprehensive and help tremendously to put the material delivered into force when I’m back at CTAL.”

Dark Matter Composites

Dark Matter Composites predominantly provides training and consultancy services to the composites industry worldwide. 

In recent years a need to provide best practice dust control on courses led the company (with support from Dynabrade and Festool) to develop ‘off the shelf’ extracted air tools that are specifically suited to working with composite materials, as well as capturing generated process dust at source.
