Testing completed at the University of California at Riverside has shown that the Helicoid™ technology improved dent-depth by 49% vs. other quasi-isotropic materials and had a 15% higher compressive strength after impact. These factors are highly advantageous to the Aerospace industry given the markets specific design drivers including: tensile strength, compressive strength, flexural strength, corrosion resistance, temperature resistance and impact performance.

Utilizing the Helicoid™ in materials manufacturing is advantageous as existing qualified materials can be used with just a simple change in layup. Automated Material Placement machines can be used for large format needs as well as liquid molding with specialized non-crimp fabrics.
