TeXtreme® - Lightweight Carbon Fabric
TeXtreme® Spread Tow Fabric (STF) increases the performance and reduces the weight of your composites. The material is pliable and easy to handle when forming and cutting.
In the TeXtreme® biaxial fabric, the spread tapes are woven at an angle of ± 45°. The fabric lies very flat and shows only a low ondulation (fiber deflection), which makes better use of the properties of the fibers. Torsion layers can be laminated without waste.
Processing in all common processes such as hand laminating, pressing, vacuum injection. Generally high fibre contents are achieved.
The specified tissue weight increases by the binder to about 9 g/m².
Key benefits of TeXtreme®:
• Reduced weight by 20 % or more
• Increased mechanical performance
• Easy to handle and cut due to a stable structure
Storing: Dry and below 30 °C
UV: No sensitivity
Shelf life: No limitation
EP-Binder: 18 °C softening takes place (improved processing at room temperature)
The manufacturer (OXEON) informed us on request that great progress has been made in quality in recent years, but due to the extremely complicated manufacturing process, unfortunately no consistently first-class quality can be delivered.
The fibre tapes are not absolutely clean and evenly spread, but this is not a disadvantage for purely technical applications. Unfortunately this fabric is not or only partially suitable for optical applications. Occasionally weaving errors may occur. These are interrupted fibre tapes which were then joined together by the manufacturer using adhesive tape.
Unfortunately, we cannot select the quality and/or cut out such faulty areas. The manufacturer expressly points out that such irregularities do not constitute errors and are not grounds for complaint.
The fabric in ± 45 ° is a novelty and very complicated to manufacture. In the edge area an approx. 5 cm wide strip is irregularly woven. The actual useful width of the fabric lies within a tolerance range of 90-95 cm.
