_Composite rods • JITEC

Joncs Composites • JITEC

Cousin Composites’ technology allows the production of composite rods based on glass, aramid or carbon reinforcement, and in a range of diameters from 0.5 to 11 mm.
The parallel dipping impregnation of continuous fibers with a thermosetting resin is the basis of manufacturing. This process is suitable for accelerated production. The impregnated threads are then assembled, formed and calibrated. Before rolling on the storage wheel, the composite is then finalised by thermal polymerisation.

• Applications: telecoms – reinforcement of fibre optic cables

_Racket strings

Cordage de raquettes squash tennis

The unique expertise of the company in terms of manufacturing strings for tennis and squash have made it a European leader.

The Cousin Composites range of specialist string experts includes the stringent management of two manufacturing technologies which have led to the specificity of products: on one hand a unique “multifilament” manufacturing process for strings and on the other, a “monofilament” extrusion-stretching production technology.
