Our globally unique flexible prepreg - FibrFlex™ - is the only intermediate continuous flexible thermoplastic composite product, available in an array of fibers and resin formulations of choice, that can be converted to woven and braided fabric, which unlike the prepreg rigid tape offered by the competition, can also be used in three-dimensional lay-ups in the fabrication of ridged composite structures for the thickness of choice.
Our Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) – Ros-1™ - removes the steps of costly post-processing for purification and dispersion into resins, the typical labor intensive and requisite steps faced by our competition. In addition, Fibrtec is ready to manufacture these nano-based continuous fiber thermoplastic composites in elegant cost effective solutions for high performance applications, thus solving tomorrow’s engineering and design challenges today!
Both of our platforms - thermoplastic and CNT or CNT-composites bring price, performance, productivity and property improvements, when replacing metals and other composites.
Ros 1: • CNTs are true nano size • No catalyst = Pure Graphite • Straight uniformly Graphitized Easy to disperse in plastic
Competition’s CNTs • Must be cut to nano size • Need to be purified • Tangled - brillo-pads like Difficult to disperse
Fibrflex Product Matrix
The following fiber resin combinations have been made in the past and can be produced reliably for future projects.
Available by custom order only and subject to fiber and resin availability. Some resins like PA12, PA612, and PPS are in short supply globally for large orders currently.
Product can be provided in tow form on 3x11 inch paper tubes, as braided sleeves, or fabric. Consult Fibrtec for braid and fabric styles available.
Resins not shown above may be available but are subject to a process development program to qualify the resin compatibility with the process and fibers.
