Inspired by nature, CompPair designs materials built for repair to extend the lifetime of composite structures.

CompPair has developed a leading innovation in the self-healing composites domain. Embedded healing enables the ultra-fast repair of several types of damage events in composite structures. 
Following the principles of the waste management hierarchy, the waste management methods with the lowest impact on the planet are the prevention of waste and the reuse of materials and products before they become waste. 
Our materials build composites that are designed for repair. Their embedded repair feature prevents future waste and pollution linked to the manufacture of products. The regenerative feature of the matrix system decreases the need for raw materials extraction.
Maintenance and repair during the lifetime of composite parts significantly extends the lifetime of a composite structure. This allows to retain the economic value of materials and valuable resources are kept in the loop longer.
Healable materials are a great asset in promoting a circular economy for the industry, waste prevention being the preferred option for waste management.

Our activities


CompPair can support their clients on various levels:

Prepreg providers: CompPair sells prepregs with an integrated healing technology. These are used to build composite structures with an intrinsic healing ability.

Customising to other reinforcements: CompPair’s resin systems can be combined with any reinforcements including natural fibres.

Customising our resin systems: CompPair’s strength is to adapt their resin systems to add and modify certain properties that are required for specific applications.

Support in repair mechanisms: CompPair can provide repair training or adapt repair mechanisms to suit their clients’ needs.

Implementation support: CompPair’s engineers can help implement the healable prepregs in the client’s manufacturing processes.

Life cycle analysis and eco-design: CompPair’s sustainability department can assist clients in designing composite products with a low carbon footprint.

HealTech products

CS01, the first composite system, is a toughened prepreg, adapted to the sports, leisure, space, aeronautical, and industrial sectors. CS01 works well with Autoclave and OOA processes.

CS02 brings similar benefits with a reduced cycle time. It is more adapted to sports, leisure and industrial parts. CS02 is recommended for press processes, but is also compatible with Autoclave and OOA processes.

Our unique technology acts during the whole lifetime of products, helping manufacturers, consumers, and the planet.

For manufacturers

For manufacturers, CompPair makes production more efficient and brings a sustainable and quality differentiator to the market. CompPair products are compatible with current production, with comparable performances, while drastically reducing maintenance costs and improving repair quality.

For consumers

For consumers, CompPair saves time and money with a fast repair, all while keeping the integrity, the performance and the weight of the products constant (before, during and after repair). The product’s lifetime extension allows the consumer to benefit from the product for a longer period of time; reducing personal costs.

For the planet

For the planet, CompPair reduces waste during production and repair while extending the lifetime of products and recycling them better. We aim for a circular economy of composite products, including the reuse, repair, refurbishment and recovery of parts. This has the potential to save Mtons of CO2, due to a large reduction in resources.
