Consulting

CompositeLink (Consultants) Ltd is founded on the experience of our expert consultants, who have established an international reputation over the last 35 years as specialists in polymers and composite materials.

We have carried out Polymer and Composite Materials research since 1968. Our research accomplishments lie in three main areas concerning polymer and composite materials. These are: structure and properties of engineering polymers, processing and properties of composite materials, and structural applications of composites.

In the last ten years we have worked on the processing of polymer matrix composites and on the structural application of polymer and composite materials in the offshore and other industries, establishing an international reputation in these areas. In the last ten years we have also been involved in the management of large Joint Industry Projects in the field of composites engineering.

We provide regular consultancy services to companies in the UK, Denmark, Holland, Spain, Belgium, Argentina, Bahrain and the USA and have provided Expert Witnesses in Civil actions in the UK and USA.
