ARE COMPOSITE MATERIALS COST-EFFICIENT COMPARED TO ALUMINIUM OR STEEL?
Yes, they are. Specific properties of composites materials are higher and with adequate manufacturing technology and proper design they are competitive in price, with less weight and better performance.
IS PRE-PREG THE BEST TECHNOLOGY?
Could be an absolute yes or a categorical no. It will depend on the component specification, such as geometry, quantities, cost/unit, etc. We will find the ideal for you.
WHEN YOU SAY COMPOSITES, DO YOU MEAN CARBON FIBRE?
We call composite a material made of matrix + reinforcement fibre. Carbon is one of the numerous fibre types, with its own world full of options inside (HS, IM, HM), but there are so many others: Glass, Aramid, Flax…
