Notus Composites, an innovative prepreg solutions provider based in the UAE, has completed the final shipment of fire-retardant (FR) epoxy prepreg for Dubai’s Museum of the Future.

Over 600,000 sq m of prepreg materials have been supplied for the building’s external façade panels.

Museum of the Future is one of the most complex facade projects to date. Designed by architectural firm Killa Design, and conceived as a composite structure from the outset, this engineering marvel is a true example of the benefits of building with advanced composites.

Notus Composites has worked with the museum’s two façade manufacturers, Affan Innovative Structures and Nova Composites, to provide the composite materials for this unique exterior cladding.

Due to open in 2021, the Museum of the Future features 1,024 cladding panels that have been built using a combination of Notus’ multiaxial glass and carbon prepregs.

These EPFR-609 prepregs and NE11FR surfacing films deliver exceptional fire performance and have been approved by the Dubai Civil Defence (DCD).
