By embedding RVmagnetics MicroWire technology to the composite – precise
measurements of e.g. temperature in of each layer can be obtained during the
composite decking process. Allows one to distinguish whether the delamination or
cracks occur during or after the decking process of layers inside composites.
For the manufacturers RVmagnetics technology allows the production of the same
quality composite with less material costs (layers and epoxides).
Smart composite also enables its user to real-time monitor the condition and
performance of equipment during the operation (structural health monitoring) and
helps to reduce the likelihood of material failure. It attempts to keep low
costs by reducing the frequency of maintenance tasks, reducing preventive and
reactive maintenance with the predictive one.
Allow introduction of microwires inside various materials without affecting their properties; including implanting the MicroWire to human tissue.
Sensor can be safely implanted in human tissue, vein, implant (invasive) or become part of diagnostic device (non-invasive).
Able to withstand challenging mechanical environment.
Lifespan of the sensor itself is longer than 1000+ yrs.
There are two common approaches how to test the composite. Expansive and
selective method (X-ray, sono, …) or destructive. Both methods of testing are
widely used by the industry. Embedding RVmagnetics MicroWire directly between
the composite layers not only causes no material defects but also enables both
manufacturer and its customer to benefit from real-time data that are gained by
With RVmagentics MicroWire technology you can test every layer of every inch
of a composite. Smarten up your composite and create high added value for you
and your clients.
distinguish between quality and defective material
allow non-destructive testing
microwire causes no material defect – become part of the composite
without affecting the material properties

Benefits for manufacturer
gaining better control over manufacturing process – especially by real
time monitoring (and maintaining) of temperature during composite decking
saves material – optimizing manufacturing costs
prevents claims and financial losses
prevents loss of reputation and status of the company
lighter the material, lighter the end product
Benefits for manufacturer’s customer
