SHINDO Co., Ltd.

Intermediate Products Spreading non-crimp fabric (Spreading NCF)

Technical Classification:
[ Intermediate Products ]
[ Products / Processed Products ]
[ Multiaxial ] [ Non-crimp fabric ] [ Preform ] [ spreading ] [ stitching ]

Point of the Proposed Technology

・Compared with fabrics, it is easier for the strength to develop (Non-crimp structure)
・Compared with fabrics, it is possible to reinforce in the diagonal direction.
・Compared with conventional non-crimp fabrics, thinner and more uniformed sheet can be manufactured.


Strength development: high
Fiber content (Vf): high
GAP less、thin layer sheet

Conventional Technology

・Reinforced fiber is crimped.
・As reinforced fiber is crimped, it is hard for the strength to develop. 
・Due to the fabric structure, it can be reinforced only in the 0° and 90° directions.

New Technology

・As each layer is independent, reinforced fiber is straight.   
・As reinforced fiber is straight, it is easier for the strength to develop.
・As reinforced fiber is orientated in other than 0° and 90° directions and the fiber can be integrated by lamination by up to maximum four layers.
・Compared with conventional NCF, there is less GAP and the strength is easier to develop,because reinforced fiber is spreading. 

Technology Deployment and Cooperation

Development Stage
Commercialization Completed (already delivered: yes)
Intellectual Property Right
Joint Researchers (their role)
Example of Application
・CFRP parts in the aerospace field, a large scale ship structure, automobile parts, general industrial parts
Technical Problems
Provision of low cost high quality sheet using large tow carbon fiber (under development)
Collaborator needed to Improve
・Molder who are interested in CFRP where NCF is used and end users
・Machine manufacturers who can manufacture preform machines.
