Composites One, along with Magnum Venus Plastech and the Closed Mold Alliance, will use closed-mold technology to build a variety of large and small boat parts in the outdoor demo area during IBEX 2010.

IBEX will be held Sept. 28-30 in Louisville, Ky.

Running throughout the show, the demonstrations feature three advanced processes: the new flex molding process by MVP, the vacuum-infusion process and light resin transfer molding.

Additional closed-mold educational sessions are planned inside the exhibit hall at Composites One booth No. 1527.

This is the seventh year that Composites One is presenting live demonstrations of closed-mold technologies at IBEX.

"Holding these events at a well-established venue such as IBEX has enabled us to educate manufacturers on the benefits of these processes and what they need to get started," Composites One marketing manager Marcy Offner said.
