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®Impact is a cutting-edge material that offers exceptional impact resistance and splinter protection. It binds sharp-edged fiber fragments, ensuring maximum safety during high-impact events. The material's ductile failure pattern and high energy absorption make it ideal for use in a wide range of applications, including sports equipment, protective gear, and industrial applications. Overall, KRAIBON®Impact is a versatile and reliable material that delivers outstanding performance in demanding environments.
