Fibrotek Advanced Materials, established in 2000, is a vertically integrated Canadian manufacturer engaged in engineering and manufacturing composite tooling and parts for the aerospace, automotive, and drone industries, serving the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Aerospace and electric vehicle technology is increasingly turning to composite materials for their low weight, high strength and durability, and low electrical conductivity. Since composites are about half the weight of aluminum for comparable structural support, composite structures allow planes to fly with less fuel.
Fibrotek, with internal capabilities for 3-, 4- and 5-axis machining, autoclaving. additive manufacturing, transformation and assembly. Our capabilities also include five engineers specializing in project management, 140 workshop staff, two chemists with doctorates on staff specializing in composite R&D and two program managers. Using our knowledge and expertise in manufacturing complex aerospace tooling, parts and various assemblies, components and accessories has enabled us to become a preferred supplier and partner with many OEMs and Tier 1 companies in the world. This means that our customers receive high quality tools or composite parts that are built to specification and shipped direct from our factory.
Fibrotek's certifications include Certified for Quality, ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management, AS 9100 Quality Management for Aerospace and Defense, Registered under the Controlled Goods Program (CGP) in Canada, and compliant with ITAR regulations. Fibrotek Advanced Materials specializes in the resin infusion process and has produced numerous molds of various sizes. We also offer Prepreg tooling and parts according to our customers' specifications. With the opening of our sister company, NRG (Northern Reinforcements Group), which now manufactures dry carbon fiber materials for Fibrotek, we aim to reduce composite manufacturing costs and pass on the savings to our customers.
Fibrotek Advanced Materials, a Canadian manufacturer committed to engineering and producing both basic and diversified composite molds for the aerospace, automotive, and UAV industries, serving the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Composite parts are formed in molds, also called tools. Tools can be made from many different types of materials. For parts that will be produced in small quantities and can be cured at room temperature or low temperature, or for prototype parts, where strict control of dimensional accuracy is not essential, materials such as fiberglass, high density foams, machinable epoxy panels or even clay or wood / plaster models are often suitable.
Fibrotek Advanced Materials manufactures high-quality composite molds, from the initial design phase to manufacturing and delivery. For many leaders in the aerospace and automotive industries, carbon fiber parts range from interiors to visible surface parts to structural components, all of which Fibrotek possesses extensive knowledge and experience in designing and manufacturing.
All manufacturing is done in-house, eliminating any outsourcing costs for our customers, ensuring exceptional quality and workmanship. The development of complex composite molds has been a core competence of Fibrotek's since 2000. Fibrotek offers many alternatives ranging from low cost materials to high performance materials depending on the specifications and budget of our customers. Their substructure is made of aluminum or steel providing them with the necessary rigidity, and they are individually built according to customer specifications. Fibroteks molds are remarkable for their high dimensional accuracy, rigidity and durability. All Fibrotek molds are supplied from one source.
Only high quality, low shrinkage materials are used. Fibrotek also designs and manufactures product display models for demonstration purposes. Our detailed prototype modeling provides a high level of detail and precision. Based on the customer's specifications and budget, Fibrotek offers a wide range of diverse materials to manufacture our customers' prototypes before investing in more expensive, long-term production tools. Fibrotek can also manufacture complex metal tooling for the aerospace, automotive and drone industries.Fibrotek Advanced Materials

MATERIALS FOR MOLDS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF TOOLS
Trim and Drill fixtures
Fibrotek Advanced Materialsa Canadian composite manufacturer committed to engineering and producing both basic and diversified trimming, milling, and drilling accessories for the aerospace, automotive, and drone industries, serving the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Fibrotek Advanced Materials manufactures high-quality finishing devices, assembly devices, assembly jigs, holding devices, and milling devices, from the initial design phase to manufacturing and delivery.
Our team at Fibrotek has the knowledge and proven experience in the design and manufacture of complex molds and precise fixtures for milling, drilling and assembly needs. We produce a range of composite tooling from models and caps to production molds. All manufacturing is done in-house, eliminating any outsourcing costs for our customers, ensuring exceptional quality and workmanship. The development of complex composite milling and milling fixtures has been a core competence of Fibroteks since 2000.
Each composite part, post-molding, requires some sort of finishing, ranging from drilling holes to trimming excess material. Milling, cutting and drilling accessories must be large and very robust to enable milling operations; strong clamps are also needed. Fibrotek offers hydraulic or pneumatic grippers for high volume automated processes. Care is needed because composites behave differently from metals when drilled and cut. Their stacked laminate construction makes them susceptible to delamination, breakage and tearing of fibers, especially if cutting tools are worn or dull.

Fibrotek Advanced Materials produces superior quality aerospace tools and parts, from initial design to manufacturing and delivery. Fibrotek's composite parts are made using prepreg materials in autoclaves or ovens, as well as wet materials such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, graphite, Kevlar, and other aramid polymers. The Fibrotek 10 X 20 composite autoclave is a high-pressure vessel used in the manufacturing of composites that require high pressure and heat. With our production facility, we can produce aerospace tools, parts, and components with complex geometries and shapes. The resin systems include epoxy, polyester, and phenolic. Fibrotek's aerospace quality management system is certified to ISO9001:2020 / AS9100D.
Composite materials are particularly attractive for aviation and aerospace applications due to their exceptional strength / stiffness / density ratios and superior physical properties. Composite material typically consists of relatively strong and stiff fibers in a tough resin matrix. Many types of reinforcing materials are available for use in airplanes. Three types are most often used to build custom airplanes. These are fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar. Fiberglass or fiberglass is the most widely used reinforcing material.
At Fibrotek Advanced Materials, our composite facility utilizes the latest technologies and equipment for the production of aviation composite parts, ensuring control over time and temperature-sensitive composite materials.
