Composite Architecture

Goetz is building two custom cupolas and a weathervane  for  the Staten Island  Children’s Museum. The male mold (pictured) is  5.5m in length. Here the part is getting a balsa core fitted before the inner skin is laid up. The complex shape will be laminated in a wetpreg fire retardant epoxy system.

Funny Car completed at target weight

We shipped our first Funny Car body today. The final cook took place last night and the results speak for them selves. Built from a Carbon/Kevlar prepreg the completed body weighs just 105 lbs and will see speeds in excess of 300 MPH in under 4 seconds.

The body is headed to John Force Racing for fit out and then onto Palm Beach. The project was a joint effort between CET, Bob Tasca Racing and our next door neighbor here in Bristol, Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats.

Architectural projects

Our latest project is for the Staten Island Children’s Museum. We are tasked with building parts of the fiberglass roofs, the air scoop and the rotating mechanism [Harken traveler tracks].

We will make a male tool and wet laminate the solid glass piece and then paint and deliver. Check back for updates and images of the finished parts. The scoop pictured below will measure approximately w12′ x h12′
