Airtech Materials Build Panels for Carbonyte

23 October 2006

Airtech materials have helped manufacture lightweight panels with the finish required for Carbonyte’s new luxury Anarchy Limousine

Carbonyte’s process employs self heated mould tool technology using Airtech Toolfusion materials, avoiding the need for oven or autoclave equipment. Their use of resin infused composite panels has achieved a 140” vehicle extension with a weight increase of only 600Kg.

Chris Wright from Carbonyte UK stated, ‘The process is aimed at cost effective composite processing in any application including Marine, Aerospace and Industrial, and we believe the Anarchy Super Stretch Range Rover showcases the possibilities of weight savings using advanced composites in this high profile, image conscious market’.
