22 Aug 2014

Technical Fibre Products (TFP) appoints JianYe and BluDot Group as the exclusive distributor of our Optiveil, Optimat and Tecnofire nonwovens in China, Taiwan and Singapore.

JianYe and BluDot Group Co., Ltd is a Guangzou based import export company which was founded in 1993 and operates across a number of sectors including composites. Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will be represented by JianYe & BluDot Group's special raw materials division. This division was founded as BluDot Asia in Singapore in 2002 and is wholly dedicated to the import and distribution of materials for composites.

This commitment to growing business in this region is shared by TFP's parent company James Cropper, a leading luxury papermaker, who recently opened a new China office in Guangzhou to support the growth of their paper products business in China.

To further enable growth in China TFP, supported by JianYe and BluDot Group, will be exhibiting at the China Composites Expo in Shanghai next month from 3-5 September on stand 511 in hall1. On display at the expo will be a range of new developments including; electrostatic and lightning compatible composite pipes suitable for use in aircraft fuel systems. This is a joint innovation, patent pending, with AGC AeroComposites and presents the opportunity to save up to 200 kg in weight per aircraft, potentially equating to an estimated fuel saving of up to 26,000 kg per aircraft per annum. Other new developments include the world's lightest nonwoven carbon veil at 2 g/m² which is a good candidate for use as a carrier or support for fragile materials or adhesive films. As well as a range of recycled carbon nonwovens which demonstrate comparable properties to virgin carbon fibre veils with the added benefit of environmental sustainability.

As well as these recent material developments, the company will promote the full range of Optiveil, Optimat and Tecnofire materials which are specifically designed for the surface engineering of composites, as well as the capability to increase the functionality of these materials through the bonding of multi-layer structures, powder addition and substrate compression.
