Cristex Introduces Co-Fibre to UK

UK distributor Cristex is introducing Co-Fibre, a hybrid glass fibre and polypropylene (PP) fabric that is reported to offer superior mechanical performance including an exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio.

Other advantages are said to include:

  • fast cycle times, reducing cost and improving resource;
  • significant weight reduction – available in 700 g/m², making it easier to handle and cheaper to transport;
  • direct processing, without additional resin;
  • environmentally friendly – no solvent emissions;
  • resistant towards environmental influences – it does not expand or contract in extreme weather conditions;
  • chemical resistance – i.e. no corrosion.

Co-Fibre is suitable for a variety of industries including automotive, construction, aerospace, industrial and marine.
