M5 Uses Hexcel composites for Roofing

HexForce® NC2® reinforcements have been selected by BMW for the inner structural layer of the carbon-fibre roof of its M-series cars. Hexcel’s NC2® patented technology enables carbon-fibre multiaxial reinforcements to be produced that are flat, lightweight and provide more uniform coverage than conventional Non-Crimp Fabrics (NCF) . This is a major advantage when producing thin composite structures requiring a cosmetic appearance.
