Lightweight construction, efficient use of resources and shorter cycle times are just some of the demanding requirements of the Composite Industry. In response Co-Fibre™ was introduced to the market by Cristex, providing the opportunity to reinforce parts in an economic and efficient way.

Other advantages include:

·         Fast cycle times – Reducing cost and improving resource.

·         Significant weight reduction – Available in 700g/m², making it easier to handle and cheaper to transport.

·         Direct processing – Without additional resin.

·         Environmentally friendly – No solvent emissions.

·         Resistant towards environmental influences - It does not expand or contract in extreme weather conditions.

·         Chemical resistance - I.e. no corrosion.
