A line of heat-resistant, fibreglass cloth products for high-temperature industrial applications have been developed from Pars Manufacturing Company.
Parglass Fibreglass Cloth is a plain, tightly woven cloth manufactured from texturized fibreglass yarn; it contains no compound, cement or wire. Engineered to withstand temperatures up to 1000 degrees F, Parglass fibreglass cloth meets United States Coast Guard requirements for incombustible materials.
The material retains 25% of tensile strength, according to Pars, even when service conditions reach 1,000°F, and will not swell, shrink, deteriorate, or change chemically. Available in weights from 8.5–40 oz/yd², product can be aluminized on one side for thermal reflection or have brass or stainless steel wire inserts for increased tensile strength.
Recommended uses include welding curtains, fire blankets, insulation blankets, industrial and marine lagging, asbestos cloth substitute and drape cloth, among others.
Parglass Cloth is available in a variety of weights (8.5 to 40 ounces per square yard), finishes (heat-treated, waterproofed, weave set, renwet and/or flameproof), coatings (neoprene, vinyl, Teflon., and constructions (aluminized on one side for thermal reflection; with brass or stainless steel wire inserts for increased tensile strength).
The MIA is delighted to support ‘Composites in Motorsport’, a 2-day conference organised by NetComposites, which will look at the innovative use of composites within our industry and future applications of composite solutions within motorsport.
Shape provides accurate CNC machined patterns and Rohacell foams to support the manufacture of the carbon composite structures used on their 2019 car that is due to compete at Silverstone on 19 July 2019.
COBRA International is collaborating with Flite, the Australian-based electric foiling surfboard manufacturer, on Fliteboard and Fliteboard PRO – two state of the art, electric foiling composite surfboards that reach speeds of up to 45kmh.
