Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will be
exhibiting its broad range of advanced nonwoven materials on booth
C24 at SAMPE Seattle. On display will be several new
developments as well as examples of TFP's novel multifunctional
nonwoven materials and the many solutions that these provide for
The first innovative new development is a
nano-functionalized nonwoven, which has been created on TFP's
commercial nanocoating line in Schenectady NY. The incorporation of
nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes or nanofibers into or onto a
nonwoven can provide multiple benefits including enhancement of
surface conductivity, EMI shielding, thermal management and
structural properties. Nanocoating is a new capability for TFP and
the team at the show would be delighted to discuss this exciting
new technology with you.
Other new developments include a range of lightweight
nonwovens with increased flexibility, smoothness and fiber 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 fiber types
and areal weights in order to ensure the necessary functionality,
compatibility and performance are achieved.
TFP specializes in developing or adapting materials
to meet customer specific performance, processing and aesthetic
requirements. This is enabled by extensive product development
capabilities, ranging from proof of concept lab work to trials,
full scale manufacture and converting via lamination and
nanocoating. Talk to the team on booth C24 at SAMPE Seattle to find
out more about TFP's capability and explore how our materials can
help deliver a solution to your technical challenge.
