Fibre reinforced plastics that are light weight, flexible and strong are often used in applications for defence. Whether the reinforcement agent is fibre tow or bundle, woven fabrics or even nanomaterials like graphene, the strength of the composite depends on the interaction of the reinforcement agent with the matrix to deliver lighter, stronger structures or improved ballistic protection performance.
The surface properties of many polymer or carbon based advanced materials can prevent good interaction with the matrix material. Onto™ surface modification treatments improve the reinforcement agent-matrix interaction to deliver high performance composites.
