One of Dallara’s most important innovations was to understand the potential of composite materials in the creation of racecars. The research and application of composite materials are key skills of the company.

Composite materials allow engineers to exploit the full potential of a component, drawing on a broad spectrum of mechanical properties with all the various combinations of resins, fibers and matrices that make up a composite material. Depending on the selected materials and the “lay-up” used (combinations of stratification of the composite), it is possible to have differing performance, stiffness, strength and weight.

The composite development department supplies both Dallara departments and external customers with the necessary expertise in the field of composite materials by defining:

• Production technology, appropriate materials, and related processes
• Materials to be used, ply-books and appropriate baking cycles
• Time and cost for the production of components and manufacturing equipment
• Requirements of materials and possible equivalents
• Reparability and methodology of component repairs

To allow the engineers of the technical office to design these materials in an appropriate manner and to assure that the production and quality departments to optimize their work, the composite department has defined:

• Manuals for designing components in composite materials and related models and molds
• Controlling standards for components in composite materials
• Correct ways to prepare models and molds
• Acceptability and quality levels of composite components
• Supplier evaluation, validation, after-sales service and support

All of this is made possible by the continuous investment in testing of materials and processes, interacting with suppliers, customers and other Dallara departments and continuous updates on materials and technologies.
