Medical Technology

Our Applications

Carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) has proved highly successful in medical technology. Among their many outstanding properties, the excellent X-ray transparency of CFRP components deserves special mention, as does their high mechanical strength. An exceptionally wide range of properties can be obtained by selecting the right synthetic resin matrix along with suitable textile fibers and a component design matching the fiber composite. Typical applications: X-ray patient supports, sandwich panels, holders, accessories, fixing devices, transfer boards.
