Thought you couldn’t image carbon fiber reinforced plastics using X-ray CT?
FiberMagicTM was developed to measure fiber length in short fiber reinforced polymers. It is capable of much more than length measurements and has been developed to meet the broader industry need for accurate characterization of fiber reinforced composites. The key to its success in measuring fiber length lies in the unique ability to accurately isolate individual fibers and digitally separate them from the matrix material. FiberMagicTM excels on low contrast materials such as carbon fiber reinforced polymers, even at high fiber contents exceeding 50 wt.%.
