High Heat Materials
An innovative composite material has been developed that is thermoformable, impact resistant, lighter than carbon fiber, stronger than most plastics. It also enables short production cycle at lower temperature for cost reduction while being 100% recyclable.
The structure and processing of the composite provides numerous properties to the composite part. These properties lead to a strong, elastic, durable, aesthetic, light and recyclable part that you can easily process!
The market of transportation components and parts is challenged by the growing requirement for high performance and lightweight elements, driven in large part by regulatory, sustainability pressure and fuel efficiency demands.
However, the reduced weight should not come with a compromise on other properties like stiffness or processability. Today it exists a wide range of solutions likely to replace metal while insuring an acceptable level of strength.
One pioneering self-reinforced material proposes a new combination of lightweight and strength, while insuring impact resistance and aesthetic possibilities. It also offers the advantage of complete recyclability.

When it comes to designing an object or a part the challenge relies in finding the right material with a minimum of compromise.
You don't have to compromise anymore!
A new world of possibilities is now open with an innovative composite material that is thermoformable, impact resistant, lighter than carbon fiber, stronger than most plastics and enabling short production cycle at lower temperature. It is also aesthetic and 100% recyclable!
This self-reinforced composite fabric is a 100％ polyolefin composite material, thus a mono material concept which is fully recyclable. The fabric filaments consist of a highly oriented, high strength and high modulus core and specially formulated skin on surface for welding the filaments together in a compaction process using a hot press.
