Vitow©

VITECH Composites created Vitow© in order to offer a price competitive alternative to slit-tapes for Automated Fiber Placement (AFP).

Our Tow Prepregs are mesh (e.g. PAN based carbon fiber with modulus from 240 to 380 GPa) up to 1.200 m long impregnated with a low tack resin system “RV201”, calibrated to ¼’’,  ½’’or 1” wide and supported on plastic film.

For instance, our Vitow© is currently being used to manufacture marine foils, wheel rims and many non structural aerospace applications. 

Each spool is delivered with a certificate of conformity which indicates its width tolerance:  More than 90% of the length fitting within a tolerance of +/- 0,5mm.

Our Vitow© range of products offer many industrial advantages:

– No cut fibers on the edges, each tow being impregnated individually generates less head maintenance.
– No splice: fiber areal weight can be optimized up to the maximum cutting blades capacity.
– Available with many fibers: HS carbon, IM carbon, glass, aramid,…
– Small MOQ: 6 spools if standard, 12 spools if specific request
– Can run on AFP robots at full speed.
– Low cost.

NB: Vitow© has been tested and approved on CORIOLIS and MTORRES robots.
