Process selection is critical to the success of a new composite development.

We work on the front end of the project with our clients to understand their product’s unique performance requirements:

  • Weight
  • Strength
  • Stiffness
  • Cosmetics
  • Tolerances
  • Operating environment
    • Temperature
    • Solvent exposure
    • Water
    • UV
  • Fire, Smoke, Toxicity


Once we have a good understanding of performance requirements, we then evaluate manufacturing volume requirements and cost.

Process selection falls out from a design for manufacturing matrix from the criteria above and our expertise and background knowledge.
