TFP at Composites Europe

Technical Fibre Products (TFP) says that it will be exhibiting its nonwoven products Composites Europe.

On display will be materials from TFP’s Optiveil, Optimat and Tecnofire ranges, specifically designed for use in composites. The materials can impart surface functionality such as EMI shielding, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, electrical conductivity and static dissipation.

The dielectric nonwovens act as an electrically isolating layer between dissimilar conductive materials to prevent the electrochemical reaction that causes galvanic corrosion.

They also offer passive fire protection at the surface of a composite and can act a release material or breather fabric.

Also on display will be TFP’s range of thermoplastic veils which are designed to increase composite interlaminar toughness, including a veil made from polyimide (fiber and binder).
