INTRODUCING KYRONTEX®

Design flexibility and performance meet in KyronTEX®

KyronTEX® is a recyclable thermoplastic composite material utilizing fast and scalable textile manufacturing processes. Uniquely drapeable and available with random fibers, continuous fibers, or as sandwich sheets, KyronTEX® is suitable for use in complex, high-performance parts at large dimensions and high production volumes.

With unique material properties, a high degree of manufacturing flexibility, and the possibility of bespoke formulations, KyronTEX® allows more engineers than ever to bring lighterweight, stronger, and more sustainable products to market.

Fully recyclable yet consistent in quality, this cost-effective textile composite material can be used across a broad range of applications and industries. From motorcycle helmets to aircraft panels, KyronTEX® is rewriting the rules on the uses of thermoplastic composites.


PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
Automated production line
Scalable solutions Looking to simplify largescale production?

KyronTEX® allows for the highly efficient large-scale production of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTP) with a novel impregnation technology. Dry impregnation is a highly automated technology that combines high-throughput production with continuous inline quality measurements to maintain a consistent quality. The resulting carbon fiber composite fabric can be used directly to produce highly complex parts without the intermediate production of a laminate.

Heisenbergsite-1
Streamlined manufacturing Need to produce complex geometries?

Unlike other thermoplastic solutions, KyronTEX® enables the realization of highly complex geometries. The drapability of the fleece allows for smaller radii without the usual distortion of fibers that compromise part performance. The predictability of the fiber movement during compression molding takes the guesswork out of part performance, reducing the number of required assembly steps. Producing a single-material part also simplifies the recycling process.

Recyclable carbon fiber scrap material
Sustainable futures Want to reduce your CO₂ footprint?

KyronTEX® is fully recyclable. Any waste created during production or at end-of-life can later be recycled into high-performance engineering materials. Our technology infrastructure enables the use of recycled carbon fiber (rCF) materials at a constant and consistent quality, while our vertically integrated structure and industrial scale recycling facilities ensure we can produce CFRTP composites with the lowest emissions in the industry.

Design flexibility Looking for a bespoke solution / material?

Our KyronTEX® technology offers a variety of technical specifications, component options, and material combinations, covering thermoplastic polymers, content carbon fiber / thermoplastic matrix, non-continuous (non-woven-fleece), and continuous fibers (woven fabric and uni-directional). We can also adjust the layer configuration, sandwich structures and expansion of non-woven core layers to meet engineers’ requirements and create multiple density parts.

REWRITING WHAT'S POSSIBLE Working with KyronTEX®

Drapability for more complex part production

Thanks to its unique drapability, KyronTEX® can be used in the creation of complex geometries, simplifying the part production process and saving on costs. The manufacturing of more complex parts can be done with our thermoplastic KyronTEX® technology in minutes, rather than hours.

Easily combined with other materials

KyronTEX® can be easily joined to other parts (assembly by welding), or quickly combined to work with other materials (hybrid overmoulding), reducing the need for complex connecting components or fasteners.

Recyclable carbon fiber material

Fully recyclable, KyronTEX® can be repurposed and reused. Post industrial waste and parts at the end of their lifecycle can be collected and recycled at industrial scale.

Reducing aircraft emissions with KyronTEX® cabin wall panels

Between recycled sourcing and fabrication efficiencies, the use of KyronTEX® composite in Boeing's cabin sidewall panels may contribute to a significant reduction in emissions at every stage of the part’s lifecycle – from raw material, to manufacturing, to their use in flight, to end-of-life recycling.
