QHL is an Australian-listed company which, through its subsidiary company Quickstep Technology Pty Ltd, has investments in advancedcomposite manufacturing facilities in Australia and advanced composite manufacturing technologies for the global market.
"Composites" are materials made by combining a number of different elements with the aim of getting an end result or property - for example combining fibre glass and resin. Advanced composites tend to be high-strength fibres such as carbon fibre imbedded with performance resins such as epoxy resins. These materials are used extensively in the aerospace and defence industries, and are increasingly used in high-performance and electric powered cars.
Quickstep has significant capabilities and expertise in the production of aerospace-grade advanced composite components using both conventional autoclave-based manufacturing and leading out-of-autoclave production technologies, including our patented Quickstep Process.
