3D Cellular Composite

3Dc is the term given by CompoTech to a series of precesses that allow an effective three dimensional fibre composite.  This composite consisting of a high axial fibre content in the X direction with fibres also in the Y and Z direction interconnecting them.  The result is a cellular appearance in cross section.

When it is necessary for a part to achieve very high axial stiffness in a thick section,  3D cellular composite was created to satisfy this requirement.  The cellular structure enables a shear path across the section and very high fibre content in the cells.  It also allows more interesting sections to be realised.
