Manufacturing Process

Compression moulding

Not only do ampliTex™-PP and powerRibs™-PP have a substantial positive environmental impact, but they also deliver practical benefits for large-scale production. Easily integrated into existing compression moulding lines, the technology can simplify manufacturing by eliminating certain steps. For example, creating parts with a perfect visual surface directly out of the mould allows to forego additional steps like the application of traditional cover materials. Furthermore, the possibility of implementing a one-step back injection process for local reinforcements and fasteners further enhances efficiency, allowing the solution to comply with tight time restrictions in mass production settings. 

Injection moulding

The character and soul transmitted by the natural appearance of ampliTex™, can easily be combined with the simplicity of an injection moulding process. Used as a customisable visual layer, ampliTex™ can replace traditional petrol-based cover materials with a renewable alternative while guaranteeing highest ease of use as a drop-in layer in your injection moulding process. This simple compatibility with one of the most widely used production processes, really allows OEMs and Tier 1s to easily embrace the sustainable design perks of ampliTex™ without having to worry about added complexity. 

Resin transfer moulding

Dry ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ reinforcements are fully suited to resin transfer moulding manufacturing processes. This opens new doors for parts manufacturers from all sectors to take advantage of the countless aesthetic opportunities and sustainable lightweighting benefits of our natural fibre composite solutions. Let us help you to replace glass and carbon fibres with a renewable and beautiful alternative.

Vacuum infusion

ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ natural fibre reinforcements can be used in vacuum infusion processes in the same moulds as carbon or glass fibres. The powerRibs™ grid adds another significant benefit to the manufacturing process as its properties make the additional flow media superfluous. This means that by switching to a natural fibre layup with ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ or a hybrid layup of carbon or glass fibres with powerRibs™, you can significantly reduce the use of consumables and therefore waste from production. Our experienced team of engineers supports our clients from idea to final product, to assure the best possible outcome.
