A premium product is a MUST in order to maximize the performance of the vehicles. What makes a premium product PREMIUM? First of all, it has to be made with top quality material. If someone sells a premium product that is designed by the greatest designer and produced with the most advanced technology but using an average material, the averageness might cancel out the advantages you get from the design and process used. It’s basic but important.
Thus, FTG Performance makes its products with some of the most exotic materials of our time.
FTG Performance uses prepreg for its composite production. Comparing with the traditional hand layup, the parts made with prepreg have much higher strength properties, better uniformity when it comes to production, better appearance with glossy and smooth surfaces. And the material and technology we use have given us the capabilities to make composite products not solely for decoration, but also possibly for structural application.
There are different sources and grades of titanium on the market, and the most common alloy being used is Ti6Al4V with ASTM spec grade-5 titanium. We are hearing stories about some manufacturers accidentally bought their titanium from the wrong sources so they ended up with customer claims and compensation requests from the dissatisfied customers. Reputational damage or financial loss is one thing; security issue is not funny at all. That’s exactly the reason why FTG has chosen to use titanium with AMS4928 (SAE aerospace material sepc), more guarantees for us, and for customers who choose to trust us.
