Technical Fibre Products Ltd will be exhibiting its nonwovens for composites at the China Composite Expo taking place in Shanghai from 31 August to 2 September.
On display at the show will be TFP’s Optiveil nonwoven veils which range from range from carbon, glass, polyester and aramid to thermoplastics, and provide a variety of solutions for composites such as adhesive carriers, a barrier to galvanic corrosion and resin flow media. A layer of heavier weight Optimat nonwoven can also reduce print through from the underlying reinforcement fabric if interleaved between the fabric layers close to the surface.
They can also impart functionality to the surface of a composite depending on the type of veil used and can range from corrosion resistance (glass and carbon) to abrasion resistance (aramid), electrical conductivity, static dissipation and EMI shielding (carbon and metal coated carbon).
TFP will also be exhibiting its Tecnofire nonwovens, which provide composites with built in fire protection.
