Metyx Composites plans to exhibit new fabric materials at JEC World composite show, taking place in Paris in March.

Metycoremax FS (Fire Shield) is a fire-retardant RTM reinforcement fabrics, compatible with all major resin types. Metycoremax FS is a halogen free, sandwich design, stitched glass fabrics with a fire retardant core. IIt will be produced at the Metyx plant in Istanbul, Turkey, available in the same published formats as Metycore RTM glass fabrics with additional glass layers, surface veils and biaxial skins are also part of the product range.

Another new product being promoted during JEC World 2017 is Metyx’s new range of ‘webbed’ carbon fiber woven fabrics. These new product additions to the Metyx product range for producing composite parts are suitable for the automotive, transportation, marine, rail, wind energy and industrial markets. The ’webbed’ fabric includes the addition of a fine layer of thermoplastic coating, which resembles a spider’s web, applied as a covering to the surface of the woven fabric. This addition can stabilize the woven fabric, making it less prone to deforming.

Also on show will be the company’s Metycore FS (Fire Shield), Eglass and aramid and carbon fiber technical textile products.
