A second life for used COVID 19 products 20/11/21

Giving a new objective to waste, this is the project of Chris Middleton (designer). Winner of the Unwanted Shapes competition by presenting surfboards entirely made from recycled COVID waste (gowns, masks, gloves, bottles ... Composites Distribution and Gurit took part in this project, in particular on the supply of Kerdyn 80 PET foam.

A great initiative and a great project!

Composites Distribution has the wind in its sails 25/06/21

Jean-François Buléon, Composites Distribution sales manager, was as happy as Kojiro Shiraishi to see the ‘DMG Mori Global One’ boat cross the finish line of the Vendée Globe in Les Sables-d’Olonne (Pays-de-la-Loire). The success of the first Asian skipper to sail around the world in this race was due in part to a remarkable boat. Built at Multiplast in 2019, the fast and sturdy yacht is made, among other things, of Gurit prepreg carbon supplied by Composites Distribution. ‘We had to be highly responsive because construction of the boat started very late and was completed in less than a year, around six months ahead of the usual time frame’, says Jean-François Buléon. The ‘DMG Mori Global One’ is the sister ship of the ‘Charal’ skippered by Jérémie Beyou (13th in the race), also built by Multiplast in Vannes (Brittany).

Kojiro Shiraishi built on the experience gained in his previous Vendée Globe, which he abandoned, to finish 16th in the 2020-2021 race. The boat was put to the test and the skipper had to repair the top of the sail after it was torn by a gust of wind. But the yacht chopped through the waves with power and flexibility, allowing Kojiro Shiraishi to cross the finish line and step onto the dock in… a kimono.

Projet A2V : Bateaux ultra-rapides 11/12/15

La société française Advanced Aerodynamic Vessels (A2V) a dévoilé cette année à La Rochelle, le prototype de son concept innovant de navire ultra-rapide à portance aérodynamique. Le surprenant bateau, aux lignes novatrices, a été conçu et réalisé dans le plus grand secret.

Composites Distribution et le Groupe Gazechim ont fournis les matériaux composites (mousses, tissus, résines).

Equipé de deux moteurs Mercury Verado de 200cv, cet engin pouvant embarquer 6 personnes est conçu pour dépasser la vitesse de 40 nœuds (représentative d'une allure de 60 noeuds pour un modèle équivalent de 25 mètres), tout en étant très économe en énergie grâce à la sustentation aérodynamique.

Retrouvez l'intégralité du projet ici.

Projet A2V : Bateaux ultra-rapides


The Groupe Gazechim Composites stand at the Paris Air Show 2015 is co-located with Hexcel, a leading manufacturer of composite materials for aerospace. Groupe Gazechim Composites is an official distributor of Hexcel products, and their affiliate Composites Distribution has industry approval to distribute Hexcel’s aerospace materials, supporting the growing demand for composites driven by their greater use in aerospace structures. Hexcel appointed Groupe Gazechim Composites to enhance its service to the aerospace supply chain, in particular to respond to requests from its customers for smaller delivery volumes and short lead times.

Partnering to Support MRO Activities As more and more composite-intensive aircraft enter service around the World there is an increasing requirement for airlines to carry out composite repair operations. Repairing aircraft quickly to minimize downtime means that small quantities of materials have to be readily available at all times. Hexcel and Composites Distribution are partnering to provide solutions for MRO that allow aircraft repairs to be carried out quickly and conveniently.


Composites Distribution is launching the new CAB concept (Composite AeroBox) from Sunaero (Hall 2B, Stand B85). This efficient tool kit has different compartments for the storage of frozen prepregs, ancillary materials that are kept at ambient temperature and a hotbonder control panel, all contained within an easy to transport box that holds everything that is required for a quick repair of a composite part out in the field.

Hexcel’s range of products developed for composite repair includes HexPly® M20 prepreg and HexForce® carbon fabrics. HexPly® M20 prepreg provides high temperature performance from a low energy cure cycle at 120-130°C (250-265°F) and can be processed out in the field using a vacuum bag and a heater blanket or hot bonder - or in an autoclave. These materials are approved by the Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC) that sets global aerospace standards for composite repair operations.

Groupe Gazechim Composites is a European network of 38 specialist distributors covering 23 countries, all certified to ISO9001 and EN9120, with over 40 years’ experience of supplying composite materials to all markets.

Hexcel Corporation is a leading advanced composites company. It develops, manufactures and markets lightweight, high-performance structural materials, including carbon fibers, reinforcements, prepregs, honeycomb, matrix systems, adhesives and composite structures, used in commercial aerospace, space and defense and industrial applications.
