Manufacturing Process

Bcomp offers both dry fibres and high-quality natural fibre prepregs from trusted partners. Thermoset production can be done using vacuum infusion, autoclave, prepreg compression moulding (PCM) or RTM in the same molds as for carbon fibre parts. The Bcomp engineering team provides optimisation of layups and can perform reverse engineering of existing carbon fibre parts to facilitate implementation. We support our clients all the way to the final parts. 


Autoclave & prepreg compression moulding 

Bcomp’s ampliTex™ natural fibre reinforcements are available as prepreg material from our trusted partners. By working in close collaboration with the best prepreggers, we can assure that ampliTex™ prepregs provide the best resin-to-fibre-weight ratio, ideal tack and our engineering team is here to support our customers with the right parameters for both autoclave and compression moulding production. Our ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ reinforcements can be used in the exact same moulds as carbon and glass fibres, making for an easy transition to a more sustainable material. 

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.
