Zero-mass interlaminar reinforcement
NAWAStitch is the ultimate interlaminar reinforcement for composites.
The NAWA 3D nanocarbon is integrated between the composite layers.
NAWAStitch reduces drastically delamination
The integration of NAWA 3D nanocarbon between the fiber layers slows the propagation of microcracks in the thickness of the layers and drastically reduces delamination.
Fracture propagates along interface
Fracture is driven into ply and stops propagation
NAWAStitch increases resistance to fatigue and repeated impacts
NAWAStitch makes it possible to extend the lifespan of the most stressed composite parts or to make possible the use of previously unthinkable composite materials. With a weight of only 2 g/m2, NAWAStitch can also make it possible to lighten composite parts with equivalent mechanical performance.

NAWAStitch-TS-PPG for thermoset composites
NAWAStitch-TS-PPG is a product that can be used directly for the manufacturing of your composite parts, it consists of NAWA 3D nanocarbon transferred to a reference prepreg (or to the prepreg of your choice) and a protective film.
NAWAStitch-TS-PPG is available in rolls of 20 meters in length.
Client: Santa Cruz Bikes (USA)
Application client: bikes rim for the Mountain Bike World Cup
Target objectiv: unbreakable rims
“In downhill racing, the wheels suffer hard, repeated impacts with rocks and roots. Failures occur when the tire bottoms out and the rim bead cracks. NAWAStitch has made the wheels much stronger, we believe by increasing the buckling resistance of the inner surface of the rims during these high compressions”
Senior composites engineer
The very high electrical and thermal conductivity of NAWA’s 3D nanocarbon offers the possibility of creating new functions for composite products.
Structural health monitoring
Electrically powered, the composite heats by the Joule effect thanks to NAWA’s 3D nanocarbon.
A simple thermal camera then makes it possible to quickly check the integrity of the composite product.
Electrically powered, the composite heats by the Joule effect thanks to NAWA’s 3D nanocarbon and melts the frost present.
