Performance with freedom of design
Cato CI has developed a process for forging components from long fibre reinforced plastics (LFRTP). LFRTP are available in Carbon in combination with PA, PPS and PES but also in Glass/PA. The properties of the material are quasi-isotropic and the fibres lie in random directions throughout the component. The weight-saving potential is 65% vs. steel, 30% vs. aluminium and 40% vs. injection moulding grades.
