Parabeam introduced a new and improved line of 3D glass fabrics called “ParaGlass”. Parabeam 3D Glass Fabrics are a 100% woven E-Glass material consisting of two deck layers bonded by vertical glass piles. During impregnation with a thermoset resin, the fabric is compressed but then immediately rebounds to its original height. The resulting laminate is strong, stiff, lightweight, and durable.
The new ParaGlass product line is claimed to offer new thicknesses, easier impregnation qualities, improved drapeability, hgher strength to weight ratio and better surface quality. Parabeam 3D Glass Fabrics are being used in sandwich structures in the marine, construction and transport industries, and also for secondary containment of storage tanks in corrosive environments.
