Easymat Emulsion

  • Excellent compatibility with all types of polyester resins
  • Easy handling, good bubble releasing, very good “feel”
  • Good conformability
  • High strength of FRP products

A medium bulk chopped strand mat, manufactured from “E” glass fibres, coated with a silane base size. The glass filaments -12 µm and 30 tex- are chopped to approximately 50 mm and are distributed to give minimum orientation of the glass fibres. The chopped strands are bound together with an emulsion binder to form a porous mat that is white in color. easymat® is specially suited for parts requiring a good surface finish.

Direct Roving:

Direct Roving is an untwisted, single end roving, supplied as a tubeless package, for use in continuous process operations, such as weaving, pultrusion and filament winding. The sizing is specifically designed for fast wet out, good processing and handling characteristics as well as
excellent adhesion with most Polyester, Vinyl Ester and Epoxy resins.

TGI Direct roving

PROPERTIES
  • Very low fuzz
  • Fast wet out
  • Good processing characteristics
  • Low catenary

Single YARN

Fiberglass yarn are drawn from molten E-glass. Fine filaments are gathered up and wound as a cake on a collector at a speed upto 4,000m/min. Prior to be wound, filaments are coated with special sizing. Then, strands are transferred from cake to a bobbin by a twister. Our Fiberglass yarn are suitable for inductrial applications.

Woven Roving and Complexes

E-glass woven roving

E-glass woven roving is weaved with E-glass direct roving and a high-performance reinforcing materials, which is widely used in hand lay up and robot processes to manufacture boats, vessels, plane and automotive parts, furniture and sport facilities

Fiberglass Combo Mat

Fiberglass combo mat is made of woven roving and chopped strands randomly dispenced fibers kintted together with organic yarn, applying for hands lay up, compression molding, pultrusion or filament winding.

Speed Flow Core Mat

Core flow mat is a stratified reinforcing fiberglass mat composed by 3 layers, 2 layers of fiberglass and 1 of synthetic fibers. This reinforcing material has been specially designed for closed mold processes, as opposed to hand lay-up and spray-up open mold processes, because resin is not in direct contact with the workshop air but is processed only when the mold is tightly closed. As a result, no volatile organic compound (VOC) or styrene is released in the air.

Main applications : wind turbine blades, marine, transport.

Benefits of Vaccum infusion Process vs. Open Molding

      • Drastically reduced styrene emissions
      • Stronger composite laminates
      • Repeatability and consistency between parts (weight and dimensional properties)
      • Superior application of core materials
      • Accurate bill of materials
      • Lower tooling costs than other closed mold processes
