ACRATS Training Services is all about sharing the knowledge. We want to make Inspection techniques and repair of advanced composites accessible and achievable for as many people as possible and through this learning zone we hope to provide accurate, understandable and practical advice and information that will make this happen, including composites tutorials.

This new section of our website will be added to regularly as we address common issues encountered by our customers or provide information to accompany the thousands of products we have on our site.


At ACRATS we have experts in many different areas of advanced composites. If you have a question/subject you would like to see covered here and wish to learn composites techniques and draw on our knowledge then please contact us.
