Hexcel is proud to partner Innegra Technologies in accepting a JEC Americas Innovation Award for Fibers.

The award will be presented on October 3rd at the JEC Americas show in Boston in recognition of the combination of Hexcel’s HexTow carbon fiber with Innegra fiber to maximise the high strength and toughness in composite laminates.
Innegra S Fiber is an ultra-lightweight (0.84g/cc) high modulus polypropylene fiber technology that provides a significant weight reduction in composites while increasing the ability to absorb energy for impact resistance when combined with other fibers.

Innegra Technologies primarily uses Hexcel’s high strength HexTow carbon fiber as a co-mingled product with Innegra fiber.  Hexcel and Innegra worked in partnership to optimize the fiber mix, for which typical applications are sporting goods, safety helmets and automotive structures.
