Hexcel and Web Industries Join Forces in Europe

march 26 2012

Hexcel Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced composite materials, and Web Industries, a leader in custom manufacturing and development services for flexible materials, have signed a long-term Supply Agreement under which Web Industries will convert Hexcel’s HexPly carbon fiber prepreg into slit tape for Aerospace programs, including the Airbus A350 XWB. As part of this agreement, Web will establish and operate a dedicated world class slitting operation within Hexcel’s newly expanded prepreg facility in Stade, Germany.

Using their proprietary PrecisonSlit carbon fiber slit tape technology and processes, Web Industries will convert Hexcel’s carbon fiber prepreg into various formats of precision slit tape. This slit tape is used on Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) manufacturing lines to make many of the composite structures found on the latest aircraft programs. These prepregs require strict operational and environmental conditions and co-locating the slit tape operation within Hexcel’s Stade plant will provide outstanding environmental control and quality assurance.
