Technical Fiber Products (TFP) has developed a new range of lightweight nonwovens with increased flexibility, smoothness and fiber, according to the company.
The materials will be on show at JEC World, taking place in Paris in March.
These new materials have been compressed to deliver a higher density, reduced thickness and smaller pore structure for a given areal weight and reportedly have improved conformability when working with complex mould shapes Due to the thinner structure, they can reportedly improve the volume fraction achievable. The veil is available in a range of fiber types and areal weights in order to ensure the necessary functionality, compatibility and performance are achieved.
The company has also developed a PTFE nonwoven and an extended range of lightweight thermoplastic veils. The PTFE veil ha a combination of hydrophobic and non-stick properties. The latest addition to TFP’s range of thermoplastic veils, which are designed to increase composite toughness, is also a high-performance veil and is made entirely from polyimide (fiber and binder).
