TeXtreme® by Oxeon AB

Oxeon is a research-based material company that develops, produces, and sells extremely thin carbon fiber materials. Founded in 2003, the company is now a leading player in the field of spread tow thin ply reinforcements, and the material is marketed under the brand name TeXtreme®. In applications where TeXtreme® is used, customers achieve higher mechanical performance and significantly reduced weight. Today, our fabrics are used in many areas, such as aviation, industrial, and sports applications.

Oxeon holds several material and technology patents and together with its property fiber spreading technology, Oxeon offers spread tow thin ply reinforcements in woven 0/90, woven +/-45, UD (Uni-directional) and DFC (Discontinuous Fiber Composites). Focusing on ultra-light weight materials TeXtreme® is offered in weights from 20 g/m2. TeXtreme® Technology is flexible and tow-size independent, which enables development of optimized reinforcement solutions custom made for your specific application needs.

Oxeon has high growth ambitions, and financially strong owners in Investment AB Latour, Chalmers Ventures and more.

Thin plies give you the freedom to optimize the reinforcement design. At the same time this technology saves weight and reduces laminate thickness. Thin plies (<0,05 mm/layer) suppress or delay crack initiation in loaded composite structures. Thereby allowing for manufacturing of lighter, stiffer and more durable composite products.

Thin plies optimize your carbon fiber usage.

TeXtreme Technology is flexible and tow-size independent which allows the development of optimized reinforcement solutions, tailor-made for specific needs of the application. Without sacrificing rigidness or strength it also can improve impact tolerance as well as your surface smoothness. TeXtreme® is available in a wide variety of configurations.

Symmetrical bi-directional construction

Material Ply sequence No. of fiber layers to achieve symmetry
UD [+45/-45/ -45/+45] 4
NCF [NCF(+45/-45) / NCF(-45/+45)] 4
STF [TeXtreme® (+45/-45)] 2

 

Symmetrical quasi-isotropic construction

Material Ply sequence No. if fiber layers to achieve symmetry
UD [0/90/+45/-45/ -45/+45/90/0] 8
NCF [NCF(0/90/+45-45) / NCF(-45/+45/90/0)] 8
STF [TeXtreme®(0/90) / TeXtreme®(+45/-45) / TeXtreme®(0/90)] 6

Impact tolerance

The ply thickness of each separate layer is clearly connected to the strength of the composite part. The benefit achieved by thin TeXtreme® Spread Tow reinforcements compared to the apparent strength is illustrated above.

Combining the weight savings possible from the optimal fiber structure with the thin nature of Spread Tow reinforcements renders a performance that no other composite reinforcement can match.

TeXtreme® Spread Tow reinforcements is the ultimate choice for making ultra light composites. TeXtreme® Technology is flexible and tow-size independent, which enables development of optimized reinforcement solutions custom made for your specific application needs.

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. Soon after Oxeon AB was founded, this new carbon fabric was launched as TeXtreme® Spread Tow fabrics to the market and they also initiated the sales of TeXtreme®Spread Tow tapes.

Oxeon’s road to success has been full of challenges. Initially Oxeon purchased carbon UD tapes to produce its fabrics. However, the lack of suitable tapes that met with the quality requirements, lead Oxeon to develop its own Spread Tow Technology and machines. From this a beginning Oxeon now has grown into a sound and reliable market leader. For its strong growth Oxeon was recognized as Sweden’s fastest growing company in 2010.

The latest innovation concerns development of a new technology to produce Spread Tow +α /-β fabrics. This technology, called Oblique Fabric Technology, produces continuous-length bias fabric wherein the tapes are placed in +α /-β orientations. The initial +α/-β Spread Tow carbon fabric offered had the tapes oriented in +45/-45. These +α/-β Spread Tow fabrics can be advantageously combined with existing 0/90 Spread Tow fabrics for obtaining a direct multixial reinforcement. These patented innovations allow Oxeon to provide a wide range of optimized reinforcement solutions.
