Fibertex Introduces Compoflex Surface Fabrics in the USA

05 February 2008

Fibertex has introduced its Compoflex surface fabrics in the USA, a surface fabric product that offers easy release from the laminate without the use of any coatings on the product.

“Compoflex has found good use in the wind turbine, racing and boat building industries in Europe, and we are confident that its unique advantages will also find applications in the USA”, says Product Manager Morten Sorensen from Fibertex.

Fibertex says that the product releases more than 5 times easier compared to conventional peel ply even after the FRP part is fully hardened. “Compoflex is produced without application of any coatings or additives to the surface, and therefore the surface of the product and also the resulting FRP parts are 100% clean”, says Morten Sorensen and continues: “We have seen massive time savings with regard to peeling times, and the fact that Compoflex replaces the peel ply, release film and breather when vacuum bagging, offers significant time handling savings”.

“We see a very good potential for this new product in the USA, and are confident that it finds good use at many FRP production sites regardless of the process they are using”, says Raymond Miller, Northern Fiberglass sales and continues: “The peeling properties this product offers are incredible, and it just makes the whole FRP production process so much easier”.
