Very high heat and stiffness, ceramic, developed for PIV.
The patented technology used in DSM Somos® PerFORM Reflect enables the reduction or even elimination of much of the finishing work that is typically required with traditional materials. This innovative material is specifically designed to produce strong, stiff, and high-temperature resistant composite parts that are well-suited for wind tunnel testing.
Studies have shown that the use of Somos® PerFORM Reflect can decrease post-processing requirements by over 30% and eliminates the need for additional PIV coatings. As a result, data collection is faster, and the overall lead time per design iteration is reduced, enabling customers to perform iterations more quickly.
