The Composites division was born in 1991 from a technical textile development for composite materials molding under vacuum: the VACUOPLEX™, first technical complex of molding under vacuum invented and patented by DIATEX.
Today, the activity and specialty of the Composites division are set around 4 transformation processes:
Composites Vacuum molding,
Composites Vacuum Infusion,
RTM Injection (Resin Transfer Molding),
RTM LIGHT Injection.
In these 4 process technologies, DIATEX’s Composites division brings to end-users:
- Technical support
- A range of technical fabrics
- Vacuum molding consumables
- Vacuum Infusion consumables
- Vacuum machines & systems
- RTM injection machines
- Training space: classes and demos.
The manufacturing process of the Composites division is in the “ECODESIGN” mindset, in response to a strong demand of its clientele.
The goal is to manufacture a range of products more anchored into the environment friendly / ecological trend, within REACH recommendations such as for instance:
- Water-based release agents,
- Biodegradable films,
- Multilayer / multiproduct complexes to reduce waste,
- Single/double sided adhesive fabrics to avoid glue sprays,
- Fabrics manufacturing including waste water reprocessing
DIATEX is a sponsor of the SAMPE France association.
DIATEX designed a specific range of bagging materials for prepregs and hand lay-up composite materials with vacuum polymerization. The success of DIATEX is based on the manufacture of innovating products, such as Vacuopeel®, Vacuoplex® and Vacuolease®, whose purpose is to facilitate the application of environmental products by users during drape moulding operations.
DIATEX also offers all standard environmental products as well as the equipment which is used in this manufacture process in compliance with our quality systems.
DIATEX designed a range of bagging materials for vacuum infusion, a transformation
process often used in boat industry and wind turbine sector.
Positioned at the forefront of technology, DIATEX is constantly developing new solutions to increase the productivity of market operators. DIATEX INFUPLEX® multilayer system combining a fl ow media and a release fi lm is a perfect demonstration of innovation. DIATEX provides a whole range of ecological products and vacuum equipment required in infusion process in compliance with our quality system.
