Sigmatex announces textile partnership with Innegra Technologies, LCC

Sigmatex, a world leader in converting carbon fibre into innovative technical textiles for use in composites applications has entered into a textile partnership with Innegra Technologies. After a long working relationship, Sigmatex and Innegra Technologies are forming a strategic alliance to develop applications utilising Innegra S fibre.

Innegra S high performance fibre is the lightest structural fibre available, delivering superior toughness in a composite while at the same time reducing weight. In both glass and carbon composites, Innegra S dramatically increases the composite toughness and impact resistance. Innegra S delivers the complimentary benefits the of high performance fibres such as aramids and carbon at a fraction of the cost.

While the growth of composites has given rise to numerous new applications, it has also exposed some weaknesses in the available materials to meet stringent performance requirements. Soaring fuel and energy costs have heightened the need for even lighter composites. The inherent rigidity of high modulus fibers has, to an extent, limited the applications available. Innegra S fiber gives the composite designer an ultra-lightweight fibre (0.84g/cc) with excellent energy absorption for impact resistance. Combining this fibre with high modulus fibres using state of the art reinforcement technologies will further fuel the growth of composite applications.

The Sigmatex Group creates textile solutions, which optimise the performance of carbon fibre in complex structures. Key solutions include 2D woven, unidirectional, multiaxial (non-crimp) and 3D textiles across a broad range of industries including aerospace, marine, automotive, and high performance infrastructure products.

Scott Tolson, CEO, Sigmatex Group commented saying, "With Sigmatex's world leading expertise and wide product range we felt that Innegra S fibre is well suited in future composite applications, and under the new ownership we envisage a long future for Innegra S applications"

" We are excited to be partnering with Sigmatex. Their wide range of reinforcement options, knowledge of high performance fibers, and market knowledge bodes well for the future of Innegra S in the global composite industry " stated Jeff Ettin, Director, Sales & Marketing for Innegra Technologies.
