Technical Fibre Products is delighted to
announce the launch of some innovative new nonwoven materials at
JEC World in March.
The first new development, on display at
stand N34 in hall 5A, is a range of lightweight
nonwovens with increased flexibility, smoothness
and fibre volume. These new materials have been compressed
to deliver a higher density, reduced thickness and smaller pore
structure for a given areal weight. They have been designed to give
improved conformability when working with complex mould shapes and,
due to the thinner structure, simultaneously improve the volume
fraction achievable. The veil is available in a broad range of
fibre types and areal weights in order to ensure the necessary
functionality, compatibility and performance are achieved.
Other recent developments include a novel PTFE
nonwoven and an extended range of lightweight thermoplastic veils.
The PTFE veil is a new release material and offers a combination of
hydrophobic and non-stick properties. The latest addition to our
range of thermoplastic veils, which are designed to increase
composite toughness, is also a high performance veil and is made
entirely from polyimide (fibre and binder). This new veil provides
the advantage of chemical resistance combined with high thermal
Speak to the team on stand N34 in hall 5A at JEC
World to find out more about these new developments along with our
full range of multifunctional nonwoven materials. Typical
applications for these include enabling a high quality surface
finish, while simultaneously imparting functionality such as EMI
shielding, conductivity, abrasion resistance and fire protection.
Our nonwovens also deliver composite interlaminar toughening, as
well as providing an effective adhesive carrier, resin flow medium
or galvanic corrosion barrier.
