JEC Europe 2015 - TeXtreme is a registered trademark owned by Oxeon AB. Founded in 2003, Oxeon has quickly established itself as one of the market leaders in spread tow reinforcements with its products marketed under the brand name TeXtreme.

TeXtreme is the ultimate choice for making ultra-light composites. The TeXtreme technology is flexible and tow‐size independent, which enables development of optimized reinforcement solutions tailor‐made for specific application needs.

Utilization of TeXtreme spread tow carbon fabrics and carbon UD tapes by manufacturers of sporting goods, Formula 1, marine and aerospace products confirms that 20‐30% lighter composite parts can be produced with improved mechanical properties and superior surface smoothness.

The TeXtreme team makes sure to produce an optimized reinforcement solution and ensure that the solution is realized into full-scale production. During the process of implementation, the team provides support for everything from calculation and simulation to manufacturing and marketing support. TeXtreme products are available in several hundred variants, varying on parameters such as fibre type, areal weight, etc. What variant is produced depends on what is the best possible solution for the specific product’s needs.
