The Inspiration - The Mantis Shrimp​

The Helicoid™ evolved over hundreds of millions of years to become highly efficient and incredibly tough.​

Equipped with a hammer-like  club that performs and survives  rapid underwater attacks.

The Helicoid™ Architecture​

IT’S NOT THE MATERIAL – IT’S THE STRUCTURE​

Sheets of parallel fibers are  stacked, and each layer is  rotated to form a Helicoid™

 

Helicoid™ Composite Laminate Benefits​
