Introducing KRAIBON® from our partner Gummiwerk KRAIBURG, a revolutionary material that is sure to transform the world of composites. KRAIBON® is a thin rubber elastomer that is co-cured with thermoset resins, resulting in a composite material, which combines the positive characteristics of fiber reinforced plastics and rubber elastomers. that is in a strong and flexible material that is perfect for multi-material bonding.
With KRAIBON®, you can achieve permanent flexible joints between composites, allowing you to create designs that were previously impossible. Whether you're working on automotive components, sporting goods, or medical and orthopedic applications, KRAIBON® is the perfect material for achieving the strength, durability, and flexibility that you need.
Thanks to its unique properties, KRAIBON® is an excellent choice for designers and engineers, who want to push the boundaries of what is possible. This innovative material is perfect for creating complex shapes and designs, and it can be used to create joints that are stronger and more flexible than ever before.
KRAIBON®Damp is the best choice of materials to achieve perfect sound dampening. It works according to the Constrained Layer Damping principle (CLD)”. Structure-borne noise vibrations are absorbed by the viscoelastic elastomeric layer yielding to sound dampening effects up to complete noise cancelling. It is the perfect solution for noise control in automotive and marine industry, where carcon composites are used in exterior or hulls.
