High performance products require high performance materials. When you have specific material testing requirements, fiber reinforcement adds strength and durability to meet your needs. Met-L-Flo, Inc. has perfected the advancement of the prototype composite materials and building technologies so you can concentrate on the advancement of your custom prototype or low volume manufacturing designs.
FRP – Fiber Reinforced Plastics
Using carbon, Kevlar™, or glass fiber we produce parts that perform like never before. Fiber reinforcement is perfect for high heat and/or high pressure custom prototype or low volume applications like those found under the hood. Parts that need to withstand your harsh, high stress environments or heavy loads, no longer need to create high stress for their engineers. Met-L-Flo’s FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastics) is the solution.
This process is ideal for sweeping curved surfaces, and large, flat-surfaced geometries. Our integration of Direct Digital Manufacturing enables advanced manufacturing practices to be applied to your Custom Prototype and low volume manufacturing programs. Our skilled craftsman can install complex features and additional components where necessary. Typical applications are aerospace, automotive, large over the road, agricultural, earth moving, and construction equipment.
