Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit nonwovens for use in surface finishing, imparting EMI shielding or fire protection, and other transport applications, at the JEC Conference on The Future of Composites in Transportation, taking place in Chicago, US, on 27-28 June.

During the event, TFP will showcase the solutions its nonwovens offer, including:

  • Surface finish: Nonwovens provide a high quality, resin-rich surface finish to a composite. Used extensively as surfacing veils, they minimise the problem of print through and potentially reduce the amount of further processing required;
  • Electronic and electrical systems: Metal-coated nonwovens are incorporated into electronics enclosures to shield against electromagnetic interference (EMI);
  • Brakes and transmissions: Abrasion resistant aramid provides a substrate for friction parts, where it is used as a coating base for clutch, brake and automatic transmission systems;
  • Chassis and frame: Dielectric nonwovens provide a lightweight, effective barrier to galvanic corrosion, a common and destructive problem when aluminium or other metals come into contact with carbon fibre;
  • Fire protection: For mufflers, batteries, engines, catalytic converters and body interior panels.
