Twisting Case Study
Textile processes such as jackard weaving require thousands of fibers to be combined into a tight area in a repeatable fashion.
Concordia Ply twisting to provide tightly controlled, consistent fiber cross section to the jackard loam weave shed, significantly reducing fiber damage.
Thousands of successful parts created with consistent fiber volume fraction now serving the commercial aviation industry.
Commingling Case Study
Customer required a structural, highly drapable composite for a consumer electronics application with good impact and thermal conductivity performance.
Concordia’s team provided material sample options using carbon/glass/polycarbonate blends for customer trials.
Customer was able to conduct comparative testing and select the best performing material for their application.
Custom Fiber Processing Case Study
Customer approached Concordia looking for a fiber which was completely covered with a flame retardant material.
Concordia developed a process to extrusion coat the core fiber with the flame retardant polymer.
The customer was able to create a flame retardant fabric using this custom fiber solution which reduced their costs and increased performance.
Thermoplastic Composite R&D Case Study
Customer needed test panel mechanical data on a custom layup using Concordia Commingled Fiber.
Concordia’s consolidation lab is capable of providing custom layup schedules, consolidation guidance or services, and mechanical testing.
Customer received the following:
– Sample consolidated panels
– Process Instructions on how to create the panel
– Mechanical Test results
