Successful Formula 1 Season for Teams Reinforced by TeXtreme

26 November 2013

Oxeon claim that its carbon reinforcements have been by the most successful teams and drivers in this year’s Formula 1 season.

Oxeon says TeXtreme has been used within Formula 1 for many years to reduce weight and improve mechanical performance.

“For years the F1 teams have successfully been using our reinforcements, successful both in terms of weight savings and actual results on the race track. The proven track record in F1 and Americas Cup as well as all positive results achieved in Aerospace and Industrial applications are the best proof we can get of the performance of our materials.” says Andreas Martsman, Vice President – Marketing & Sales of Oxeon.

The mechanical performance of the woven Spread Tow structure in combination with the more optimal fibre volume fraction enables production of ultra-light and high performing advanced composite parts. The company says TeXtreme can be varied on a number of parameters creating unique opportunities to optimise the reinforcement to the application. TeXtreme can be delivered as dry fabrics or prepreg, all based on the customer’s specific needs.

Current applications for TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon reinforcements involves bicycles, Americas Cup, NASCAR, Le Mans, ice hockey sticks, golf shafts, industrial, advanced aerospace applications and much more.
