At TFP we offer the capability to manufacture veils and mats
comprising of precise blends of fibres. Usually consisting of an
evenly distributed blend of dielectric with conductive fibres,
typical products include blends of E glass & carbon,
polyester & carbon and aramid & carbon. These
veils and mats are used in applications requiring static
dissipation and reduced radar cross section. As part of our Optiveil™ and Optimat® ranges the
materials are suitable for use in all major composite fabrication
techniques and are compatible with most common resin systems.
- Static protection
- Electrical conductivity
- Excellent resin uptake
- Chemical resistance
- Electromagnetic wave absorption
weight: 4 g/m² up to 200 g/m²
Poly vinyl alcohol (PVA),
co-polyester and cross-linked polyester
- Glass & polyester blended with precise amounts of
conductive fibre can be used to reduce radar cross section in land
vehicle, aircraft and marine applications.
- Veils made from blends of glass, polyester or aramid with
conductive fibre provide protection from surface static discharge
in applications such as composite roll covers. They can also be
used in resistive heating applications.
- Blended fibre veils provide a high quality resin rich surface
finish without the use of a gel coat. By adjusting the blend
can deliver a tuneable aesthetic appearance.
Our veils and mats are available in rolls from as narrow as 5 mm
up to 1650 mm in width. We also offer the capability to supply
materials in sheeted form or as cut shapes, contact us to
learn more about our materials and capability.
