WHAT IS CURV?
CURV® IS AN EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT AND STRONG COMPOSITE MATERIAL
First introduced in 2007, CURV is a self-reinforced thermoplastic composite that provides superior impact resistance and stiffness when compared to conventional plastics. CURV’s lightweight strength and durability makes it an excellent improvement over both plastics and traditional composites in many applications.
CURV AROUND THE WORLD
CURV CAN BE FOUND IN A VARIETY OF
CURV is made from highly molecularly oriented thermoplastic fibers that are woven and bonded into a matrix of the same polymer. Standard CURV is 100% thermoplastic polymer and does not contain any inorganic fibers such as glass or carbon.
Standard CURV is 100% thermoplastic polypropylene and fully recycleable.
CURV can be cut and sewn with traditional processes. CURV can also be formed into three dimensional parts through pressure-thermoforming. Contact us to get the processing guidelines.
Do to the unique flexibility of the CURV production process, CURV can be reinforced or combined with other materials such as glass or carbon fiber to create unique materials with customizable mechanical properties.
