EXtens External Reinforcements

Carbon fibre plates strengthening the structure

Utilizing UD carbon fibre plates gives significant advantages over traditional metal plate bonding.The material is easy to handle and apply by hand and has better properties than e.g. competing steel.

Exel produce plates with a peel-ply surface to enhance bonding properties and protect from contaminants. The plates are extensively tested in Exel laboratories and can be delivered on coils or cut to length
