refisa composites structures
exploring the COMPOSITES possibilities
REFISA is a leading company in the manufacture of composite materials, using the most advanced products and technology on the market.
Our goal is to explore the potential and possibilities of composites (composite materials). We design and produce all kinds of components in these materials.
Due to their lightness, high resistance and versatility, composites are a widely used material in industrial sectors as varied and important as: transportation, aeronautics, naval, rail, automotive, or construction.
Our experience linked to the development of projects in the railway sector has allowed us to create two complementary business areas to respond to the needs of new market segments:
Composites: materials formed by a polymeric matrix (resin) reinforced with different kinds of fibers or fabrics.
The most used material combinations according to the type of reinforcement used are:
- FRP: Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic
- CFRP: Carbon-Fiber Reinforced Polymer
- ARP / KRP: Aramid / Kevlar Reinforced Polymer
- Hybrids, for example: fiberglass Reinforced Plastic + Aramid
Excellent Physical and Mechanical properties:
- High resistance to tension, bending and compression
- Very light weight
- Resistance to humidity and corrosion
- Allows extreme flexibility at the design level
We use a wide variety of manufacturing processes, aimed at improvement and optimization:
- Hand Lay-Up
- Vacuum infusion
- RTM & RTM-Light
Our products comply with the requirements and standards of quality and railway safety:
- EN-45545 (EUR)
- NFPA 130 (USA)
- GOST (RUS)
- NF F 16-101 (FRA)
- UNI CEI 11170 (ITA)
- UNE EN (SPA)
- BS British Standard (UK)
