Wide Range of Applications
Emission-free mobility requires lighter vehicles that must also meet high safety standards. SGL Group’s diverse range of materials and long-standing experience in manufacturing composites makes it possible to develop innovative design parts that meet the most demanding mechanical stress and crash behavior requirements, while saving weight at the same time.
In order to address the special challenges that arise in the wind energy industry, we develop and supply innovative products made from carbon and glass fibers, combining maximum tensile strength and stiffness with minimum weight. These special products can be used to develop a new generation of rotor blades that set a new benchmark in performance yield, longevity and efficiency.
Materials and designs for the aerospace industry must be lightweight yet reliable and safe, even under extreme stresses. Besides high strength and rigidity, a very high level of fire protection properties is vitally important. Lightweight construction is intended to increase performance and cut fuel consumption. These requirements can be met with carbon fiber-reinforced composite materials.
High mechanical strength and weather-resistance over periods of years and longer – these characteristic features of our components are in demand in the building industry. Our components are especially well suited for applications in which damaged or fatigued components require reinforcement and protection. In new construction or renovation projects, the service life of building structures – from bridges to facades, is extended in a cost-effective manner. And substance is preserved as well.
SGL Group's semi-finished, carbon-based materials exhibit the key characteristics required for the development of modern high-performance machinery and systems. Minimum weight with maximum strength and rigidity; precise movements even under the influence of external acceleration forces.
Innovative solutions in the service of health. Our materials promote progress in the field of medicine. X-ray equipment with maximum strength and rigidity produces high-resolution images with minimum radiation exposure. Ultra-light, high-strength prosthetics enhance the quality of life.
Higher, faster, farther. In modern sport vehicles such as speedboats, snowmobiles and paragliders, weight and stability are just as important as ergonomic and aerodynamic properties. High-performance, ultra-light products from SGL Group have proven highly effective in the field of sport vehicle construction.
Low weight and high strength are the factors that make our products ideal for partners in the field of security. SGL Group's materials provide for reliable resistance to extreme energy absorption, enabling us to realize special solutions for personal and object security.
