Kordsa shared its expanding product portfolio and new technologies with the visitors at JEC World 2019, this month. Among all the products and technologies showcased by Kordsa during the event, the lightweighting technology in heavy duty vehicle chassis system, developed in co-operation with Ford Otosan, caught the most attention. Kordsa and Ford Otosan also presented this new lightweighting technology at Composites Exchange conference on 13 March within the Automotive & Transportation track.

At the JEC Innovation Awards, which awarded sector-leading innovations, Kordsa took part as a jury member to evaluate 30 innovative composites projects in 10 different categories. In his speech at the ceremony, Kordsa’s COO of Composites, Murat Arcan explained how Kordsa was inspired from the unique moments in life and translated these moments into cutting edge technologies.

“As Kordsa, we put innovation at the heart of every step we take. In parallel to our vision to reinforce life, we are the explorers who work with passion and always seek for better. We make investments, form partnerships, keenly support open innovation in an effort to contribute to a sustainable future,” he continued.

“In this regard, together with Sabanci University we have inaugurated Composite Technologies Centre of Excellence in 2016, which is an ecosystem that brings academia and industry together. The Centre is the meeting point where basic research, applied research, technology development, product development, entrepreneurship, and production take place under the same roof. Since then, the Centre serves like an innovation hub, bringing novelties to the industry.”

Kordsa’s COO also underlined the outputs and ongoing projects at Composite Technologies Centre of Excellence. “At this innovation hub, we have recently developed a new fast cure press curable prepreg system, namely CM14 resin, which eliminates waterspot and whitespot problems thus providing high visual clarity,” he said.

“The new lightweighting technology in heavy duty vehicle chassis system, developed in co-operation with Ford Otosan, is a game changer in the industry developed in the Centre. Our innovative leaf spring for heavy duty vehicles over 16 tons also includes structural health monitoring systems used for process optimization, part qualification and online health monitoring purposes.”

As part of JEC World 2019, on 14 March at Turkey’s Country on Stage event, Kordsa participated in the panel discussion on the Turkish Composites Ecosystem. At the panel, Kordsa underlined Kordsa’s competencies in composites industries, focusing mainly on the company’s operations in the US and the ongoing projects at the Composite Technologies Centre of Excellence.
