Somos® PerFORM Reflect

Ready-to-use material for PIV wind tunnel testing

Somos® PerFORM Reflect utilises patented new technology that allows for reducing and even eliminating much of the finishing work required with traditional materials. Somos® PerFORM Reflect produces strong, stiff, high-temperature resistant composite parts that are ideal for wind tunnel testing. Extensive tests show that the new Somos® PerFORM Reflect reduces post-processing by more than 30% as it eliminates the need for additional PIV coatings. This translates into faster data collection, decreasing overall lead time per design iteration and allowing customers to conduct iterations faster.
