Joining elements

FAUSST joining element
Metal- GFR Composite

 Top Features 

For high demands on productivity and durability.


  • The first fastener with hybrid fabric for high strength.
  • Easy integration with hand laminate, vacuum infusion, RTM, etc.
  • Suitable for glass fibre reinforced thermosets and
  • Mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium available.
  • Other material combinations on request.
  • Precisely fitting lengths and customised profiles on request.
  • Numerous strength tests and non-combustibility make FAUSST versatile.
  • Joining elements can be welded together and shaped.
  • Simple structure for panels and 3D components.

The FAUSST joining element is the hybrid connection for metal-fibre composite structures. FAUSST is integrated into the manufacturing process of the composite component and enables easy joining to metal structures afterwards. Whether welding or bolting; with FAUSST you can use all the possibilities of metal processing and the advantages of lightweight materials. The combination is ideal in vehicle construction, lifts, rail vehicle construction or shipbuilding. Whether side wall, roof, floor or decorative panels: with FAUSST the use of lightweight materials is simple.

The connecting element 1) consists of our hybrid FAUSST fabric 2) and a metal profile. Flat, L-shaped or extruded profiles are possible. One or more layers of FAUSST fabric are welded to these. Afterwards, the joining elements can be directly integrated into the composite manufacturing process 3).

Versatile application in different sectors and industries.

Application examples:

  • Wall elements for lightweight containers with fire protection
  • Draw head / side element rail vehicle
  • Battery housing cover GRFP-aluminium for
    lithium-ion batteries in vehicle construction
  • Vehicle attachments Carbon stainless steel

Approvals and certificates:

  • Approval in Principle Bureau Veritas
  • Non-combustibility certificate according to EN234556
  • Non-combustibility certificate according to IMO SD0815

Easy integration into the fibre composite structure.

Example with glass fibre NCF for vacuum infusion:

Easy integration of FAUSST joining element by nesting the layers on top of each other. Feel free to ask our experts for instructions and support with FAUSST connectors for your composite construction.
