Oxeon – the market leader in Spread Tow carbon fiber reinforcements with products sold under the TeXtreme® brand name – has recently joined the world-leading CFK Valley network, which spans the entire fiber-reinforced composite value chain.
TeXtreme® has over ten years of experience manufacturing and testing real-world applications of Spread Tow reinforcements in various market such as Aerospace, Industrial and Sporting Goods. Flexible production capabilities – plus access to the largest global supply of Spread Tow fabrics – allows for rapid delivery of tailor-made fabrics to customers, and thus reduced time-to-market for their products. This expertise the company brings to the network, aiding in achieving the goal of advancing the composites industry.
“We are delighted to have joined the CFK Valley network and look forward to working together with the organization and its many members to ensure a prosperous future for the composites industry. We’ve already seen increased interest in our TeXtreme® products and lightweight solutions support,” says Henrik Blycker, CEO of Oxeon, the makers of TeXtreme®.
On average, products using TeXtreme® benefit from a 20% reduction in weight compared to other carbon fiber materials on the market – without sacrificing strength or rigidity.
Headquartered in Stade, Germany, the CFK Valley is a world-leading network of over 100 members representing excellence across the entire fiber-reinforced composite value chain.
The TeXtreme® product range will be showcased at the TeXtreme® booth – #E21 – during the upcoming JEC World Show from March 8-10, in Paris.
TeXtreme® Spread Tow reinforcements are the ultimate choice for making ultra-light composites. TeXtreme® Technology is flexible and tow-size independent, which enables the development of optimized reinforcement solutions tailor-made for specific application needs. Utilization of TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon fabrics and carbon UD tapes by manufacturers of advanced aerospace, industrial and sports products confirms that 20-30% lighter composite parts can be produced with improved mechanical properties and superior surface smoothness.
TeXtreme® is a registered trademark owned by Oxeon AB. Founded in 2003, Oxeon has quickly established itself as the market leader in Spread Tow reinforcements with its products marketed under the brand name TeXtreme®.
