Get to Know the Benefits of Braided Composites

Mentis Sciences is known for its advanced aerospace engineering and defense systems—and as your go-to team of composite experts, we know that every piece of the process, from inception through manufacturing details plays into the performance of the finished product. This is why we place such high importance on processes like our braided composites, which are used in a wide variety of applications at Mentis Sciences. But what makes a braided composite so beneficial for the aerospace industry?


Just read on to learn more about this unique composite manufacturing method, and how it plays a role in some of the most important aerospace systems. Take a look.


Power in numbers


Two is better than one, they say—and three, even more so. At Mentis, we have the capability to simultaneously apply up to 144 fibers at a time with our braiders – reducing manufacturing times and costs.


A light, flexible alternative


The resulting braided fiber architecture proves especially useful in applications where a strong, damage-resistant material is needed.  In addition to the hoop oriented braided fibers, axial fiber reinforcement can also be applied. This means that Mentis Sciences can tailor the performance of the composite to meet the needs of your application. The most demanding applications, after all, call for a custom, adaptable touch—which is why braided composites have proven to be an indispensable tool for the aerospace community.


Where braided composites are used


Here at Mentis Sciences, we serve a wide variety of interests in the public and private sector. Our braided composites are used in an abundance of applications, and are trusted by customers all over the world— now we are looking forward to the opportunity to show how braided composites can help meet your project needs too. In the meantime, some of the most common applications of braided composites include…


- Aircraft propeller reinforcement and other materials

- Moving parts in everyday tools and sporting equipment, such as hockey sticks.

- Aviation fan cases

- Construction equipment

- And so much more!


The bottom line? The myriad uses for braided composites are, in fact, limited only by the aspirations and real-world needs of your one-of-a-kind program.
