Composite Materials

Fiber Reinforced Plastics

We can provide “FRP” (fiber reinforced composite materials) made by many kinds of process methods.

Autoclave Molding

The integrated facility of Aerospace parts under the condition of “ISO” and “Nadcap” is installed.

Composite skin panel and Honeycomb sandwich panel could be produced.

Adhesion of metal and Painting could be also produced.

Autoclave Molding

Resin infusion Molding

We can provide complex shape composite parts by original resin infusion system such as RTM, VaRTM and others.

RTMResin Transfer Molding

Unique composite component could be produced by implemented RTM process.

RTM | Resin Transfer Molding

New ProcessAdvanced Resin infusion Molding

Composite materials can also be manufactured using low cost manufacturing process such as VaRTM.
Large scale parts and complex shaped parts could be provided by our developed resin infusion process.

* VaRTM: Vacuum assisted RTM

Additional Techniques

We have special techniques for providing composite components by using the resin infusion process.

Resin Improvement

The new resin which is combined silica fine powder into epoxy resin which is developed for the improvement of fracture toughness of composites has developed.
This Nano-composite is named “Plamix”.

Fiber surface treatments

The special sizing for improved interlaminar strength between fiber and matrix has been developing.
We are also developing special treatments for improved the resin injection process.

Additional Techniques

Filament Winding

Large scale filament winding equipment at 10m length is installed.

The composite parts at void less could be provided by our special technique.

The pipe with taper can be also manufactured.

Composite parts machined into various shapes and assembled are provided.

GFRP pipes are used for electrical insulators and saltwater desalination treatment materials. Filament Winding
Application to designer materials including structural
using the transparency of GFRP of void free.

CFRP is used for strong members. Lighted bollard

Pultrusion

The Pultrusion equipment by using epoxy resin are installed.

We can provide not only cylindrical shape but also complex cross section shape such as L, T, U and others.

Pultrusion

Other Composite Materials

We are also developing other composite process such as FRTP, CMC, C/C.
FRTP : Fiber reinforced Thermoplastics  CMC : Ceramic Matrix Composite  C/C : Carbon-carbon Composite

Preform ( Fiber Reinforcement )

Textile Reinforcement

Shikibo has been developing special fiber reinforcements for composite materials based on our original textile technology.

3D Preform

We have many kinds of 3D textile preform manufacturing process to satisfy requested property.
