Scott & Fyfe announced the introduction of Polymat FR, an extensive chopped glass mat designed for RTM applications, as a new addition to their Polymat range.

The product will be targeted at applications requiring high level of fire performance, like rail interior parts that must comply with standards such as EN 45545.

The product is comprised of a 100% glass core, which is sandwiched between two layers of chopped strand mat. Typically, laminates will achieve up to 40% by weight glass ratio, allowing for high strength laminates. The product is also designed to offer fast and efficient resin flow, improving reliability of production when used with highly filled resins.
