Vistex Composites Joins Clean Tech Center
Vistex Composites is a manufacturing innovation company that will enable broader adoption of carbon fiber and natural fiber composites. It is the eleventh company in the program.
The Vistex team commercializes the PFL process and continues to solve engineering problems for its customers. Vistex’s process, through the use of the customized Pressure Focusing Layer™ (PFL™) achieves the uniform pressure and uniform temperature required to make a composite by a much more efficient approach as compared to autoclaving. A formed uncured composite is sandwiched between a temperature controlled rigid mold, the curing mold, the PFL™, and a rigid compression mold. The PFL™ thickness and geometry varies across the composite as determined using Vistex’s proprietary modeling and optimization. This variation ensures that when the mold set is in compression the composite undergoes uniform pressurization. The process is compatible with essentially any thermoset resin system on the market, or can process a range of thermoplastics.
