Corpo™ reinforcement is a new method to fibre reinforce elastomer parts such as for example (turbo charger) hoses. Through a smart fibre architecture, each individual fibre is loaded on tensile stress, which is the most optimal situation.

Corpo™ reinforcement uses fibres and elastomers more efficiently, resulting in extremely flexible, lightweight, high-pressure products. The fibre architecture can realize the highest performance in silicone rubber compounds in terms of pressure and temperature because the absence of shear stresses puts less demands on the tear strength and elongation properties of the silicones.
