CompPair launches a new and innovative textile semi-product for manufacturers to extend the lifetime of composite structures
Lausanne, April 27, 2020. CompPair Technologies Ltd. has announced its entry into the composites market with the launch of its semi-autonomous repair solution. It is the result of more than 12 years of thorough research in the Laboratory for Processing of Advanced Composites (LPAC) at EPFL. This solution was designed to extend the lifetime of composite structures in industries such as marine, sports, windmill, aerospace and automotive.
Composite materials, an ideal solution with limitations
What do hockey sticks, boats, windmills, spacecraft, and cars have in common? Composites. This family of materials enables important weight savings while providing outstanding mechanical properties. They are usually made of carbon, glass, or natural fibres embedded in a resin to create structural and lightweight components. From increased performances to decreased fuel consumption, there is no wonder why they are interesting for industries such as sport, marine, wind, aerospace, and automotive. Unfortunately, composites are sensitive to damage due to the embedding resin properties. The current solutions to repair composites damage are time-consuming and costly, and recycling composites is still nowadays almost inexistent. The innovation brought by CompPair is having a real impact on these elements and therefore answers major problems the composites industry is facing today.
A new, innovative solution
The first CompPair product family is a series of pre-impregnated textiles made of glass and carbon fibres, integrating their novel chemistry. When manufacturers build an entire composite structure with CompPair products, using conventional processing techniques, they can overcome recurring problems such as maintenance repair time and costs. During their lifetime and the healing phase, composites made with CompPair products, keep structural and lightweight properties, all that with a cost-effective and conventional manufacturing process. CompPair solution allows manufacturers to repair in only a few minutes without adding new components. Composite structures made with CompPair products are then healable and durable, bringing additional value for end-users and achieving SDG’s 12 and 13.
Incorporated in January 2020, CompPair Technologies Ltd. formed a highly complementary team and benefits from the support of innovation grants.
They are now fundraising to secure their market entry into the sports and marine industries. CompPair roadmap is to extend its product portfolio to propose their innovative technology globally into the composites industry. Support and interest were already expressed by various composite segments, and developments are being settled.
“We have a scaled-up product; the purpose is now to build marine and sports pilots to secure first sales. Our target is to extend the portfolio up to 7 product families in 2023”, Amaël Cohades, CEO and co-founder of CompPair.
