Cristex Composite Materials and its partner, G. Angeloni, launch new 36 Alutex designs, with patterns that have a starting weight of 285g/m² up to 365 g/m² and are therefore a little heavier than the Alutex Fabrics currently available.
Alutex is a range of Woven Glass Fibre Fabrics of varied weave patterns. These fabrics are subsequently Powder Coated using an Aluminium Powder to create the finished look. As a variation we can also offer Titanex (dark aluminium), Cuptex (copper), Goldtex (brass).
According to Cristex, the variety of weaving styles and colour options available within the range, customers will be able to find the perfect finish for their project.
