Vistex Composites


Vistex Composites is a manufacturing innovation company that has developed disruptive technology for the manufacture of advanced thermoset and thermoplastic composite products. Our patented PFL™ process can be integrated into existing manufacturing plants, leveraged by Vistex in-house to manufacture high quality advanced composites made at lower cost than competitive processes. Our patented PFL™ process reduces energy consumption and CapEx/OpEx by at least an order of magnitude, provides improved throughput and performance at a competitive price. The PFL™ process substantially reduces manufacturing waste while providing equivalent strength, dimensional tolerances and aesthetics when compared to industry standard technologies. Vistex utilizes digital modeling and proprietary optimization algorithms to drive the design of the patented fabrication process, and manufacture complex components without the need for extensive heat, vacuum, consumables, etc. In an industry that traditionally relies on brute force, Vistex provides an elegant, energy-efficient solution.
