Spheretex Launches Closed Mould Core Material at JEC World 2018

Spheretex will launch its latest product development Sphere.core PSI, a core material for making light and stiff FRP laminates using closed mould processes.

It is a glass fibre-based core material with an internal high-quality flow medium which leads to a steady and fast resin impregnation. Overall part costs could be reduced due to savings in disposable flow media and working time. The core material is an alternative for making light laminates of excellent surface quality – even when applying high vacuum.

“We listen to our customers and take their requests seriously," says Managing Director Christoph Esser. "For this reason we developed Sphere.core PSI, a core material meeting the requirements that many FRP producers were asking for.”

Sphere.core PSI is available in 2-5 mm thickness and is suitable for infusion and injection processes such as VIP, LRTM and RTM. It is compatible with common unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins.
