Sciart, Inc. of Drummondville, Quebec, Canada


SciArt, Inc combines Science and Art in Weaving ô, and brings technology and skill to Fiber Reinforced Plastics, FRP, composite applications. SciArt, Inc is unique in that in addition to providing industry standard reinforcing fabrics of carbon, aramid, S2 and E glass utilizing traditional bi-directional weaving, Sciart manufactures a series of unidirectionally oriented dry fabrics including unidirectional hot-melt fill yarn weaving, and no-crimp unidirectional surface bonded technology.

SciArt, Incís unidirectionally oriented fabrics consist of carbon, aramid, S2 or E glass homogeneous, reinforcing warp fibers or a hybrid of warp fibers. HMF ô provides a proprietary thermoplastic hot-melt fill yarn woven over and under warp yarns and thermally bonded to warp fibers. Ancaref ô is a unidirectionally oriented fabric having no-crimp and a proprietary thermoplastic web thermally bonded to warp fibers. SciArt, Incís unique series of unidirectional fabrics provide directionally tailored reinforcement to FRP laminates in hand-layup, wet-preg, pre-preg, and resin infusion lamination processes and find wide use in applications from aircraft, automotive, civil infrastructure, marine, medical, recreational & sporting goods.

Sciart Inc.ís presentation will review the unidirectional fabric architectures, a comparison of the observed mechanical performance of the fabrics and its competitor product unidirectional forms, the design and processing benefits of each, and highlight specific application experiences benefiting from unidirectional fabric to tailor structural performance.
