Sustainable bio-based resin systems for a greener future.
Cecence are pioneers of scaled production and practical design for the manufacture of lightweight, sustainable components for aerospace, rail, architectural and interior design sectors.
Cecence has the technology and experience to deliver bespoke bio-based resin systems for the manufacture of sustainable composite components.
We start with the end in mind with end-to-end services enabling an efficient approach to lightweighting, FST compliance and sustainability. Cecence support you across the whole technology readiness level (TRL) spectrum.
Cecence are proven manufacturers of composite components at an industrial scale, having amongst other production lines, delivered high volumes of in-flight AS9100 compliant seatbacks.
With an ethos of “Right Fibre, Right Application”, and a commitment to excellence and the innovative use of NDT, Cecence development cycles are fast and highly effective.
Design & Engineering
The Cecence award-winning engineers are proven to make innovation not only tangible, but uniquely fit for purpose, economical and repeatable at scale.
Strong, lightweight, FST compliant parts for the Mass Transportation and Defence sectors.
The Cecence background in F1 and Marine racing, is helping to drive true innovation at scale for sectors struggling with weight, carbon footprint and high through-life costs.
Cecence have proven that an FST, 16g HIC compliant composite seatback can not only be delivered but also be cost effective and halve the seatback weight. By winning the 2019 JEC award for the rapid manufacture of a fully composite aerospace seatback, Cecence has been recognised as a trail blazer by the aerospace and composite industries.
Combined with innovation in flooring, panelling and seating, Cecence’s unique experience in cabling and rigging has delivered an all composite overhead line catenary system with a potential saving of £1m per 10km of installation. Cecence is a finalist in the 2020 JEC awards – Railway Vehicles & Infrastructure category.
Construction & Interiors
Cecence’s composite material development and know-how from aerospace and rail has been successfully transferred to the construction and interiors sector. Focused on natural fibre bio-based resin materials which offer a sustainable solution in this sector.
Sports & Leisure
Cecence is proud to be a development partner for Aerocoach, supporting improved performance in British speed cycling with lighter, more innovative components. Gravity continues to break world records supported by Cecence innovation. You can see more from Gravity on their Youtube Channel.
As commercial exploration in space gathers pace, Cecence is actively working with pioneers, delivering innovation in fuel tanks, panelling and propulsion systems to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations and stress.
The innate strength and lighter weight of Cecence’s tough composites materials make them ideal for applications across Defence where performance is paramount and weight is at a premium. The materials are particularly suited to vehicle and aircraft ballistic protection, rapid deployment systems and field communications.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Providing industry with a pragmatic approach to adopting composites via practical composite engineering, development and efficient manufacture.
Cecence industry-renowned engineering and development services are available on an ad-hoc fixed scope, fixed budget basis or as part of an end-to-end project to realise a concept through to volume production. The portfolio of services extends across the full TRL spectrum and into full manufacture at scale.
The research and development teams have already pushed the boundaries for composite applications in aerospace and rail and are now set to bring truly sustainable composites to the market.
Realising that the barrier to entry to aerospace for most composites was FST compliance, Cecence’s R&D team set out to develop the first REACH compliant phenolic pre-preg system, now in-flight. Cecence remains at the forefront of sustainable composite development.
Cecence works with clients and partners across the whole TRL spectrum from the concept stages through to scaled manufacture of a proven component. Their services are available on a fixed price, fixed scope basis or as required along an end to end project.
Since 2014 Cecence has been working closely with their sector partners, and have realised Cecence specific components ready for off-the-shelf purchase, from cables and cable terminations to poles and sustainable panels for construction.
