ATL Composites Pty Ltd

T Traditionally, the manufacturing processes used for advanced composite structures have been complex and labour intensive. ATL Composites is committed to develop ways to simplify these processes to enable our customers to reduce labour costs and produce durable, high quality products. Close working relationships with our customers has allowed us to identify their needs and processing requirements, and has led to the introduction of innovative construction methods and materials. We developed DuFLEX Composite Panels to reduce construction time, optimise structural weight and to minimize the experience required to produce a high performance composite structure. Time consuming laminating, coring and vacuum-bagging steps normally required to fabricate high performance composites are avoided, and material waste, labour and tooling costs are greatly reduced. Standard DuFLEX Panels are available with rigid end­grain balsa or structural foam cores laminated with a high performance epoxy resin reinforced with multiaxial E-glass or carbon fibre. The core and laminates are cured under heat and positive pressure increasing the fibre volume and therefore the strength of the finished panel. Core, fibre orientation and ply schedules are based on design or engineering specifications to best meet weight targets, stress and impact loads, and other design parameters. By using epoxy rather than polyester resin as the matrix, a reduction of laminate thickness is achieved while improving damage tolerance. DuFLEX laminates provide greater impact resistance than polyester laminates that are up to three times thicker. DuFLEX Composite Panels are suitable for marine, road and rail transportation, industrial and architectural applications, and are manufactured by ATL Composites in Labrador, Queensland, Australia. DuFLEX has been exported around the world for projects in Hong Kong, Thailand, Fiji, New Zealand, New Caledonia, the Middle East, Germany, England and the United States.

Collapsible tanks made from 20 litre to 20,000 litre capacity for petrol­dieselholding and fresh water. We have a large range of standard size tanks available for main tanks or additional fuel storage on deck. The advantages of flexible tanks over traditional rigid materials has been recognised by aircraft builders after WWII. Since the 1950's aircraft manufacturers switched to flexible fuel tanks to advance fuel quality by eliminating condensation and fuel bugs. Safety is very much advanced with no fumes in the tank meaning no chance of explosion on board. Flexible tanks are far easier to fit then hard tanks and offers easy access to engines or steering etc. as the tank is empty it will collapse. Water tanks are less likely to be contaminated by algae and taste free water is assured. Some custom tanks are also made to replace rusted out metal tanks. Boat builders, boat maintenance firms and owners are winning many times over by following the aircraft builders' path into the future. Turtle-Pac also manufactures diving lift bags for offshore engineering use and salvage.
