Composite Components

Cutting Edge Composites

Composite components

Since the commercial inception of carbon fibre, Future Fibres has operated at the forefront of industrial development.
We are custom composite solution providers for a wide variety of applications with experience in engineering high performance parts for challenging environments.

Composite Processes

Future Fibres wealth of experience is spread across a multitude of manufacturing processes.

Filament winding

Dry fibre materials (yarns or tows) under tension are impregnated with a matrix and applied to a rotating tool (shape depends on design and requirements).
Future Fibres filament winds mainly carbon fiber, aramid and fiberglass but other materials can be used too. Filament winding can be set up to be a semiautonomous process, cutting costs as well as duplicating high performance parts across manufacturing batches.

Oven / Paint booth

25m x 8m. Up to 100 degrees Celcuis
Clean environment for paint and layup quality control

Paint booth:
The paint booth is 30-metres long, giving us a huge capacity for painting. The booth is temperature, pressure and humidity controlled, creating the optimum environment for painting without allowing the introduction of any contaminants. We offer our customers a range of paint finishes, from clear coat finish, through to matte, gloss and metallic.
