ampliTex® powerRibs

Bcomp Ltd.

Description :
These grid fabrics are based on the patented powerRibs technology. During production, the flax yarn placement is carefully controlled in order to obtain an application-specific mesh structure.

The flax fibre quality, yarn thickness and twist are all tailored to reach optimum mechanical properties in the final composite part, more than tripling the flexural rigidity of flat and curved surfaces or the buckling resistance of hollow shapes, when compared to a standard flax composite part. In addition, applying this technology to a thin layered composite will improve the damping properties by up to 250%.

The powerRibs can be easely combined with flax, glass or carbon fibre fabrics.
