P-Wave™ 2200H radiation unit used with ImpacGard® to build a light, tough engine cover for a “DAKAR” race vehicle


ImpacGard® is a high tenacity fiber reinforced PTIR™ composite supplied in prepreg form

ImpacGard® products can be installed using vacuum bagging with a P-Wave™ radiation system as well as conventional heat processing, including an autoclave.

ImpacGard® when laminated to the back of a substrate, such as an aerospace grade carbon-epoxy laminate, demonstrates significant improvement in impact absorption, puncture resistance, spall shielding and shatter proof properties compared to the bare carbon-epoxy laminate.


Applications

  • Impact Energy Absorption
  • Puncture protection
  • Shatter Proofing
  • Fragment & Spall protection
  • Heat insulation
  • Noise insulation
  • Vibration damping
