Compression molded Carbon
Shells and parts, for example frames made with compression molded are stronger, stiffer, and lighter than shells made by wet layup. Pre-preg (pre-impregnated) carbon fiber is put into a metal mold and then formed to the perfect shape by heat and pressure, making sure no additional resin or air bubbles remain in the finished part. This way, the wall thickness can be reduced, while still being stiff and strong. Every part is x-rayed, checked for cracks or defects, and has its own unit number. The newest generation of compression molded carbon shell can even be heat molded at 90 ° C.
