Scott and Fyfe has announced a new range of multi-axial reinforcement fabrics.
The company says the product range will include the full spectrum of multi-axial reinforcement fabrics, such as uni-directional, bi-axial, tri-axial and quad-axial fabrics produced from a range of technical fibres including e-glass, s-glass and aramid.
As the closed moulding community continues to demand higher performance products that process efficiently, Scott and Fyfe will optimise the design of their products to tackle specific challenges such as drape, resin flow, air entrapment and surface finish to provide a highly effective solution.
Commenting on the launch of this product line, Paul McMullan, Business Manager for Scott and Fyfe Composites said, “The introduction of this product range is in response to growing customer demand for us to supply these products in combination with a strong desire to grow our presence in key market segments such as marine, wind energy and automotive. Stitch-bonded fabrics are a core competence of Scott and Fyfe, having sold more than one billion squared metres in the last 15 years, that is enough to cover 150,000 football pitches. This level of knowledge and experience combined with our commitment to innovation and working in partnership with our clients enables us to be the perfect partner to develop and provide tailored solutions to our clients’ needs”.
