FROM THE IDEA

TO SERIAL PRODUCTION...

As a specialist in the complete range of surface technologies in the automotive industry FRIMO now presents the “Street Shark” as a revolutionary composites-system. With the help of our cooperation partners and by means of new Polyurethane-Composites as well as the use of adapted tooling and machinery we succeeded in developing a manufacturing process to realize bionic car surfaces for serial production. This surface minimizes the drag coefficent "Cw" (tested in an independent wind tunnel).

The use of a sandwich design consisting of a lightweight core and outer layers made up of a fiber-reinforced composite material for structural components is not a new concept. However, in the past, the higher costs of this method often led to turning to aluminum solutions, which are heavier but more cost-efficient.
