The Aerospace Market has demanding requirements on the use of composite materials, looking to reduce manufacturing cost maintain or increase the mechanical performance of composites and in addition meet or exceed stringent weight targets.
TeXtreme® products have the potential to address many of these requirements by offering an optimised reinforcement solution for the manufacture of composite components.
- Weight reduction (leading to reduced emissions and increased payload)
- Improved surface finish
- Reduced manufacturing time
- Increased impact resistance compared to cross-plied UD as well as conventional fabrics
Available as a dry reinforcement or in a pre-impregnated form, TeXtreme® reinforcements can be applied to aircraft interiors and most types of structure from secondary to primary airframe components.
Working with leading companies in the industry, TeXtreme® reinforcements are available in prepreg form where the resin systems meet demanding requirements of FAR 25 both FST & OSU. In addition a thermoplastic impregnated product is available which meets these demanding requirements.
Using this unique optimized reinforcement solution and through reducing weight, the aircraft industry can increase its payload and reduce emissions of its aircraft contributing to a cleaner world.
Due to the superior smooth surface finish obtainable with TeXtreme® reinforcements, additional preparation prior to paint is almost eliminated.
