3M Powerlux™ Nano Composite
The key to the performance of 3M Powerlux™ technology is its incredibly high shear modulus (stiffness of material)—60% higher than typical epoxy resins. This allows the resin to compensate for one of the primary weaknesses of carbon fibre composites—their relatively low compression strength resulting in improvements of up to 30% over standard fibre technology.
