CompPair Launches Pre-impregnated Textiles to Extend Composite Lifetime

CompPair announces the launch of its semi-autonomous repair solution. It is the result of more than 12 years of thorough research in the Laboratory for Processing of Advanced Composites (LPAC) at EPFL. The new solution was designed to extend the lifetime of composite structures in industries such as marine, sports, windmill, aerospace and automotive.

New Product to Overcome Repair Time and Costs
The first CompPair product family is a series of pre-impregnated textiles made of glass and carbon fibers, integrating their novel chemistry. When manufacturers build an entire composite structure with CompPair products, using conventional processing techniques, manufacturers can overcome recurring problems such as maintenance repair time and costs.

During their lifetime and the healing phase, composites made with CompPair products, keep structural and lightweight properties, all that with a cost-effective and conventional manufacturing process. CompPair solution allows manufacturers to repair in only a few minutes without adding new components. Composite structures made with CompPair products are healable and durable, bringing additional value for end-users and achieving SDG’s 12 and 13.

CompPair Technologies Ltd. formed a highly complementary team and benefits from the support of innovation grants. They are now fundraising to secure their market entry into the sports and marine industries. CompPair roadmap is to extend its product portfolio to propose their innovative technology globally into the composites industry.

Support and interest were already expressed by various composite segments, and developments are being settled. “We have a scaled-up product; the purpose is now to build marine and sports pilots to secure first sales. Our target is to extend the portfolio up to 7 product families in 2023”, Amaël Cohades, CEO and co-founder of CompPair.
