Motorsport Rubber Sheeting and Coated Textiles
Motorsport is one of the most fast paced, exciting and demanding industries that a manufacturer can service. Race teams compete to shave hundredths of a second off lap times through their pursuit of faster speeds and lighter vehicles whilst maintaining some of the highest safety standards around.
Our advanced rubber sheeting and rubber coated textiles have been employed in Formula One and Indycar racing for over 30 years.
Safety Critical Motorsport Applications
Flexible fuel cells are an established feature in many motorsport disciplines. These strong but flexible fuel resistant cells, manufactured from high quality NBR rubber sheeting and rubber coated textiles, sit inside the rigid tank to resist rupture in the event of a crash, preventing fuel spillage and the threat of fire. Our Applied Technology products in this field are second to none.
Innovations in the motorsport industry are only limited by the imaginations of the skilled designers and engineers that work within it. Our Custom-Made offerings and Design and Manufacture service support these initiatives when race teams are looking to push the boundaries. Significant developments include FKM and HNBR sheeting used to create semi flexible composite parts.
