JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
This newly developed narrow fabric tape is made of a warp of sphere.strand, a glass yarn volumised by thermoplastic microspheres.
Glass rovings are used as weft material. In the beginning sphere.tex tape will be available in 10 cm width; other specifications will follow soon. It is currently available in thicknesses of 1,5 and 2,5 mm.
Typical applications are winding process (e.g. for tanks and pipes) as well as pultrusion (e.g. poles). The cured laminate is characterized by higher impact resistance and a reduced weight of the core section. Another important advantage is the reduced processing time of up to -30%.
Spheretex is well known for offering light weight and user friendly, volumised core materials for more than 25 years. Their strength is to develop and produce materials for intelligent sandwich constructions and ready to use complexes, which combine core material, an efficient flow medium as well as the required reinforcing layers.
