JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
The spread tow reinforcements manufacturer introduces a concept that focuses on achieving weight savings with keeping the total cost of the composite part the same. In order to further clarify the position and capacity for handling large volume contracts the TeXtreme Industrial concept has been added to the portfolio.
Spread tow reinforcements is a type of composite reinforcements based on novel technologies rendering a material that gives possibilities for weight savings and performance improvements as well as possibilities for cost- and time savings when looking at the total cost of the composite, rather than just compare price per sqm. Through reduced amount of material and labor time by using fewer plies and the superior surface smoothness also rendering substantial time savings this can all be achieved simultaneously as saving weight, etc.Andreas Martsman, Vice President – Marketing & Sales of Oxeon, says: “During the early years when TeXtreme was introduced it was mostly used in smaller series of high-end products because of its unprecedented performance. Nowadays with customers buying in larger volumes and with established technologies the price levels are very competitive for lightweight reinforcements. In addition our knowledge and experience in reinforcement optimization and processing regularly helps achieving cost savings, looking at the total cost of the composite."More information: www.textreme.com
