Composite panels with easier repair

Swiss company CompPair has developed a range of composite sandwich panels which can be repaired more easily and quickly using heat.

The HealTech panels incorporate a resin matrix which when cracked can be repaired using a heat gun, a blanket or an oven, the company said.

During and after this repair, compatible paints are not affected, and there is no between the healed and uncracked materials, according to CompPair.
