High mechanical resistance. With IMTEC® HR in-moulding technology for semi-structural and structural composite parts.


A strong mechanical anchorage into composites materials

The assembly of semi-structural and structural parts made of composites is a real challenge for car manufacturers to ensure the required resistance level of the final part.

The new cold-forged fastener IMTEC® HR is an innovative technology for in-moulding in semi-structural and structural applications. IMTEC® HR stands for In-Moulding TEChnology High mechanical Resistance fastener. It is compatible with most fibres and matrix materials used in composites as well as thermosets and thermoplastics materials.
