3D Cellular Composite
3Dc is the term given by CompoTech to a series of precesses that allow an effective three dimensional fibre composite. This composite consisting of a high axial fibre content in the X direction with fibres also in the Y and Z direction interconnecting them. The result is a cellular appearance in cross section.
When it is necessary for a part to achieve very high axial stiffness in a thick section, 3D cellular composite was created to satisfy this requirement. The cellular structure enables a shear path across the section and very high fibre content in the cells. It also allows more interesting sections to be realised.
