XTclave™ Technology (Hydroclave)
The XTclave™ Composite Consolidation Technology (CCT) was initially developed as a batch-type manufacturing process for ballistic protection laminates, specifically Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI), and employs the programmable cycling of significant isostatic pressure (300bar) and temperature to achieve composite consolidation in thermoset and thermoplastic based systems. Significant isostatic pressure is applied to the article being manufactured within the processing chamber by a circulating liquid medium that transfers heat extremely efficiently.
