When the properties required by a specific application seem to be at odds with one another,
a hybrid weave may provide the answer — by allowing you to benefit from the combined properties of the different structural fibers used in it’s fabrication.
Creating real-world solutions by deriving the full benefits of the individual fibres and their synergistic responses comes from our deep understanding and experience in structural composites, materials and weaves.
Provides a lower density, thicker skin for the same weight and greater stiffness than glass alone which can translate into weight saving and puncture /impact improvement compare to 100% glass.
Marrying the stiffness and relative brittleness of carbon to the high-ductility and pliability of polypropylene, the different fiber properties complement each other for exceptional impact and perforation resistance — providing better material integrity as compare to traditional composites rupture mode (does not fully break, ductile mode of rupture)
Basalt/ Innegra™ and Glass/ Innegra™
Providing a semi-ductile performance, these hybrids are some of the best reinforcements against severe impact—It’s maximum energy absorption offers protection from catastrophic ruptures (does not fully break, ductile mode of rupture) while at the same time providing an acceptable tensile strength and static stiffness.
