resin impregnation

Our resin impregnator allows us to  produce high-performance composites with several types of resins and fabrics. Prepregs are produced by coating fabrics with a thermoplastic resin matrix.

layup

We have the capacity for large scale continuous layup operations allowing for mass production of lightweight high strength composite parts. 

finishing

Finishing is focused on the details required to complete a quality product. Adaptable to handle the variety of components and assemblies.

Edges of composite laminate structures are environmentally sealed to insure long term performance in extreme end-use conditions.
