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).

PURe Composites – For Innovative Sandwich Designs

Structural components currently used in serial production generally feature a monolithic construction, which means they are built from carbon fibers in a matrix, metallic components, and aluminum or magnesium. The new approach aims to produce these structural components in a sandwich construction method, consisting of a cost-effective lightweight core with cover layers made from various reinforcing fibers.
