Technical Fibre Products Launch New Nonwoven Materials at JEC World

Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will showcase its new range of lightweight nonwovens with increased flexibility, smoothness and fibre volume at JEC World 2017.

According the TFP, these new materials have been compressed to deliver a higher density, reduced thickness and smaller pore structure for a given areal weight. They have been designed to give improved conformability when working with complex mould shapes and, due to the thinner structure, simultaneously improve the volume fraction achievable. The veil is available in a broad range of fibre types and areal weights in order to ensure the necessary functionality, compatibility and performance are achieved.

TFP also says that other recent developments include a novel PTFE nonwoven and an extended range of lightweight thermoplastic veils. The PTFE veil is a new release material and offers a combination of hydrophobic and non-stick properties. The latest addition to TFP’s range of thermoplastic veils, which are designed to increase composite toughness, is also a high performance veil and is made entirely from polyimide (fibre and binder). This new veil provides the advantage of chemical resistance combined with high thermal stability.

TFP's will also display its full range of multifunctional nonwoven materials, explaining that typical applications for these include enabling a high quality surface finish, while simultaneously imparting functionality such as EMI shielding, conductivity, abrasion resistance and fire protection. TFP adds that its nonwovens also deliver composite interlaminar toughening, as well as providing an effective adhesive carrier, resin flow medium or galvanic corrosion barrier.
