Aerospace certification for nanofibre producer


Revolution Fibres of Auckland, New Zealand, claims to be the world’s first nanofibre producer to meet aerospace industry standards.

Managing director Iain Hosie said the company’s recently awarded AS9100c certification, a quality assurance requirement for all aerospace manufacturers and suppliers, is a significant step in the transition of Revolution Fibres from a research and development company to a large-scale manufacturer.

The company’s Xantu.Layr, which is currently used in the production of high-performance fishing rods, is the world’s only commercially available nanofibre composite reinforcement veil, he said. The veil provides nanoscale reinforcement when placed between layers of carbon fibre in composite laminates.
