Carbexus® Reclaimed Carbon Fiber/Polyphenylene Sulfide Thermoplastic Sheets
Carbexus® is the latest innovation in weight-saving carbon fiber technology for integration into mass transit interiors. The material is produced utilizing proven process methods adapted from the non-woven textile and paper manufacturing industries. The system creates thermo-formable sheets that are converted into interior structure applications.
Popular Applications for Carbexus® include, but are not limited to:
- Seating components
- Window/ sidewall panels
- Ceiling panels
- Sandwich panel skins for galleys, lavatories, class dividers, closets
- Stowage bins; bin doors
- Misc. interior components
- VIP aircraft decorative panels
- Base for veneer panels
- Flat sheets for molded parts
- Cargo liner
- Freight container
SYSTEM-DELIVERED COST SAVINGS
When compared to Nomex honeycomb core panel costs, structures made from Carbexus® sheets reduce process times by 75%.
Carbexus® sheets can be formed into 3-dimensional parts for a multitude of interior components.
STRONG & DURABLE
Carbexus® has superb impact-resistance, high tensile strength, and excellent flex modulus, making it ideal for light-weight interior components.
Carbexus® is produced using recycled aerospace-grade carbon fiber waste. Our patented reclaim process yields pure carbon fiber that is blended with PPS fiber and converted into a form that becomes interior components.
Carbexus® is revolutionary technology that potentially will change the way that many interior components will be made in the future.
Carbexus® fully complies with all FAA flammability specs for
- Vertical Burn (12 & 60 sec)
- Smoke Density (< 10 Ds)
- Toxic Gas Emission
- Low Heat Release
Our process is a “cradle-to-cradle” solution, rescuing scrap aerospace carbon fiber from the landfill and returning it to the interior of a mass transit vehicle for a safer, lighter and “greener” part.
Carbexus® Performance Data
Carbexus® outperforms commonly available thermoformable aircraft interior sheet materials in most every category of physical testing. Its impact resistance is hundreds of times that of the competition; tensile strength is over 30% higher than the next-highest performer; and its low specific gravity offers potential weight and thickness savings for the interior component producer and end-user.
