ATL Composites, MuH von der Linden Form Joint Venture to Produce DuFLEX Composite Panels

june 25 2012

ATL Composites (Queensland, Australia) and MuH von der Linden (Wesel, Germany) have formed a joint venture company, vdL Composites GmbH to produce DuFLEX composite panels for the European market.

The DuFLEX panel technology was developed in Australia by ATL Composites. The panels consist of a choice of lightweight, high-strength core materials, laminated with a high-performance, specially formulated, epoxy resin and reinforced with multi-axial E- fibreglass or carbon fiber. The product reportedly has become the industry standard for composite boat construction for leisure and commercial marine craft in Australia.

Von der Linden and ATL Composites are renowned players in the marine industry and both represent leading international brands of marine products in their home markets. “It was the relationship that we shared through products such as WEST SYSTEM epoxy and BALTEK end grain balsa that first brought us together in 1987,” says Lorraine Murray, a director of ATL. The product has been well accepted; however, the lead time to supply from Australia and the high cost of shipping have been limiting factors to its overall potential. We aim to address these issues through the establishment of the joint venture to manufacture in Germany.
