Design Adding power to your projects

Our clients include leading motorsport industry brands competing in Formula 1, WEC, WRC, DTM and Customer Motorsport. We’ve built our business on meeting their uncompromising approach to engineering, design, quality consistency and timelines. Hexja’s agility, expertise and creativity enable us to deliver on highly complex and nuanced engineering challenges, rapidly and accurately.

How we work?

We use Dassault Systèmes’ leading edge CATIA software in the creation of composite concepts, projects, simulations, tool & pattern design and technical drawings. CATIA transforms the notion of traditional 3D CAD into Cognitive Augmented Design, fusing modeling and simulation into a single discipline. It enables Hexja to minimize errors while maximizing our freedom to innovate and experiment as designers and engineers.

Business and R&D - a winning combination

We work closely with the leading R&D centers in our industry. The results of their research and test protocols guide us and help us arrive at answers to the needs our customers come to us with.

Analysis and calculations

With access to high-performance equipment, our chassis calculation specialists maximize the performance of composites, keeping weight to a minimum. We simulate multi-body models, both in static and dynamic versions, ensuring all modeling accounts for real-world conditions.

Light, strong and fast

Our clients do not have to choose between precision execution and quick implementation of projects. In designing composites for the automotive industry, we cover every detail. Our production technology ensures efficiency of operation and the creation of products maintaining consistent, repeatable quality. Our goal: To minimize weight while maximizing performance properties. When you win, we win.

Flame-retardant carbon composite: A game-changing safety innovation

Hexja’s patented functionalized flame-retardant carbon composite (FRCC) combines the highest mechanical parameters of composites with non-flammable, no-smoke characteristics. In the event of, say, a vehicular fire, the source of flame can be more readily located and extinguished, minimizing risk to life and material damage. Hexja FRCC has been awarded UL94 V-0, the highest flammability rating assigned by Underwriters Laboratories of the United States.

The high-performance material the world has been waiting for.

Hexja has responded to a vital need within the automotive sector. Our clients can now provide their racing teams with the industry’s highest fire safety protections in high-temperature conditions and crash situations.

Intensive research and development, and our many years of experience in the field of advanced composites have enabled us to create a product line that meets or exceeds the expectations of the most demanding customer base on earth.

Even a high-temperature blowtorch can’t make Hexja’s FRCC combust, smoke or release toxic fumes and gasses.

How our flame-retardant carbon composite was developed

flame resistance

We applied expertise in nanotechnology to create this remarkable new material. It allowed Hexja to functionalize surfaces exposed to high temperatures or fire. When subjected to a heat source, the oxygen supply to underlying materials is immediately cut off and combustion cannot occur. All mechanical parameters of the composite remain unchanged, and the component itself is neither destroyed nor damaged by fire. An additional benefit is the non-toxic nature of FRCC. Before, during and after exposure to combustion, it remains harmless to humans and the environment.

To minimize the effects of FRCC application on the structural properties of a carbon composite part, we modify it locally, such that its non-flammable properties are strongest where it is most likely to be exposed to fire.

New possibilities for carbon composites

Where else can this technology be applied? Anywhere the use of composite carbon materials was previously impossible due to vulnerability to fire. We see this technology moving far beyond the automotive industry, in particular to companies in aerospace, medical and sports seeking more durable, safe and functional products.

We make your conceptsa reality

Our proven, up-to-date production equipment enables the development and perfection of robust products for customers who refuse to compromise.

Our laminators bring journeyman-level experience to the production of a wide range of component products for motorsports leaders. Before leaving our factory, all parts are thoroughly tested, ensuring they meet specifications, as well as performance and durability standards.
