Hexcel’s PrimeTex® technology allows light fabrics to be woven from higher K tow fibers (with weights as low as 200gsm possible using 12K fiber) while maintaining perfect quality and uniformity of reinforcement.
The HexPly® range of industrial resins enables the twin objectives of “industrial processability” (competitive and efficient cure cycles) and high performance to be achieved, meeting the high demands to which a wheel is subjected during the Tour de France challenge.
Hexcel Corporation is a leading advanced composites company.
