Fiber Reinforced Plastics
We can provide “FRP” (fiber reinforced composite materials) made by many kinds of process methods.
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.
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.
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
We have special techniques for providing composite components by using the resin infusion process.
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.
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.
using the transparency of GFRP of void free.
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.
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 )
Shikibo has been developing special fiber reinforcements for composite materials based on our original textile technology.
We have many kinds of 3D textile preform manufacturing process to satisfy requested property.
