Composite products rapidly gaining ground

Jon Lawson

Would you like a lighter yet stronger product? If so, filament wound composite products may be the cutting edge answer for you! Filament winding produces high strength - low weight products.

Filament Winding is a fabrication technique where continuous filament or tow, is wound onto a rotating mandrel in a predetermined pattern.  You can filament wind parts as small as a fuse and as large as a rocket. The industries that can benefit from composite production is unlimited!

Composite products are rapidly gaining ground as preferred materials for infrastructure, military, aerospace, and alternative energy sources. They are quickly becoming the preferred material choice for cutting-edge projects in an expanding global market.
