Oxeon AB Introduces Innovative Carbon Fibre Textrem Reinforcement

Oxeon AB introduced Oxeon TeXtreme at JEC – a carbon reinforcement produced by interlacing stabilized unidirectional 20-50 mm wide tapes, rather than yarns.

The achieved fibre architecture is claimed to combine the structural performance of unidirectional fibres, with the handling benefits of a woven textile, giving improved mechanical properties, potentially lower production cost and improved surface smoothness. Oxeon TeXtreme has therefore attracted immense attention and is currently being evaluated for a number of applications in the automotive, aerospace, sports & leisure and marine industries. At present Oxeon TeXtreme is available only in 0, 90 orientation, but in the future the ± 45 orientation version will also be available.
