Cristex supplier feature – Eurocarbon

Eurocarbon is a producer of tubular and flat braids, woven tapes, and fabrics, primarily used in the composite industry. Since 1994 Eurocarbon has specialised in the overbraiding technique where composite preforms can be produced in an automated way.

These braids, tapes, fabrics and overbraided preforms are made from high-performance reinforcement fibres such as: glass, aramid, and carbon.

It is not always easy to select the suitable fibre type, style of weave/braid, the right resin type, and the correct production method to produce the specific composite product.

The team at Eurocarbon in Sittard, along with Cristex who have been partnered with Eurocarbon for over 10 years, can offer a wealth of experience with selection of fibres, resins, design, and manufacturing methods for composite products.

Eurocarbon and Cristex are both ISO 9001 certified ensuring all requirements for quality management are met.

Eurocarbon also specialise in Overbraiding. This is a technique that is used to produce net shape cost-effective structural preforms. This technique is cost effective, time saving and reproducible. Due to its excellent energy absorption, it is ideal for crash structures.

We have listed a few of the many successes in overbraiding:

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR Crash cone 1999-2009
  • Lamborghini Aventador A-pilar and Rocker 2010-2021
  • BMW i8 A-Pilar (dev), Doorframe and Rocker 2013-2018
  • BMW 7 Roof beam (between B pillars) 2015-2021
  • More under NDA
