Supplies for the part: fibres / matrix / surface
Which fibre do I need?
The different fibre types have diifferent mechanical, thermic, electric, chemical and optical characteristics. They also differ in price.
Which delivery form is the right one for me?
Your manufacturing strategy influences your choice of the delivery form. Rovings are inexpensive and are extremely versatile, but they can also extend your manufacturing time. Sometimes multiaxial sheets or even 3D structures are a more cost efficient solution.
How can I reduce my material usage?
You can purchase your fibres either by the meter or pre-cut according to your contour. With or without a matrix. Or even already cured as semi-finished materials, that you can insert into a mould right away.
Which resin is ideal for my component?
In addition to the fibre, the matrix is the second part that is crucial for the durablitiy and the characteristics of your component. Maybe you even need a permit from an authority?
How is the surface of the component supposed to look like and how can it be made perfect?
These are only three possibilities to optically enhance your component. Which one you choose depends on your manufacturing possibilities.
