The materials we use were chosen for their effectiveness in their respective tasks. They each make the final product more efficient and robust than a similar product made in steel.
The first technological development of Carbon Fiber was its application in the military and aerospace industries. Its high resistance and low weight properties made Carbon Fiber the ideal material for military developments in the 1970s.
The resin cures with temperature, therefore it must be stored at low temp.
At the beginning of the development and prototyping of the Carbon Fiber Booms we tested metals for the structures that hold the booms. However, Synthetic Fibers eventually proved to be a superior technology, weighing less and absorbing vibrations more efficiently. The result is a structure more resistant to fatigue, lighter and stronger than steel.
The Synthetic Fibers used in the King Agro Booms are manufactured with Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, and are known in the industry as one of the strongest and more resistant fibers in relation to their weight. They are designed to be resistant to abrasion, bending fatigue and compression. And regarding durability, they are resistant to humidity, chemicals and UV rays.
5 times more resistant than steel
similar to steel
the material's density is 5 times lower than steel's.
great energy absorption capacity
