Composite in its perfection
One of the focuses of IMBEO is fibers consisting of carbon, aramid, glass and polymeric silica gel with high silica content which are used in reinforcing and strengthening composite matrixes such as elastomers, duromers, thermoplastics or ceramics. The textile substrates (chopped fibers, yarns, woven fabrics, scrims, nonwoven fabrics) are simply coated, immersed or by means of RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) and other state-of-the-art like autoclaves processed with a thermoset or thermoplastic matrix. Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP), Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) or Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) as innovative material and ready-to-install concepts provide astonishing lightweight construction properties. In addition, they ensure maximum strength and stiffness in high mechanical and temperature-related stresses, too, so that they are ideally suited for industrial applications whereas metal or plastic reach their limits. Alleged disadvantages that critics assume about the composites as e.g. doubts about crash safety we respond with innovative and already well proven methods.
