FLEXmat, supplied in 1270 mm wide rolls, is made from long chopped glass fiber thermo-bonded between two lightweight polyester veils. According to the company, the integrated veil can reach a high melting point of 180⁰C, making it suitable for high temperature exposure during pultrusion processes. Its design also allows for a slower pull on thick profiles, Ilium said.
It also has no chemical binder and can reportedly incorporate other reinforcements and a range of different resins.
It is resistant to osmosis and hazardous chemicals, according to Ilium.
