You may not realize the advantage of fabric that offers strength, flexibility and is light enough to move around in unless your life depends on it. The department of defense uses this fabric in helmets, body armor and vehicles with excellent results.
Compatibility to resin improves the fiber adhesion to surfaces frequently seen in the aerospace industry where the tolerance to extreme temperatures is critical. These unusually high degrees of heat resistance also make it suitable for heat-sealing applications. Drying conveyor belts, welding platens and thermal bonding are just a few examples.
Rubber industries like it to the durable quality surface, it creates, and the non-stick high release properties in mold making. The material is abrasion resistant, strong and yet remains flexible enough to drape it around a curve.
These coatings are safe for use in direct contact with food and unaffected by microwaves, one of the most common methods of drying. Easy clean up saves time and the material can be sterilized multiple times without deterioration.
When used in high-energy insulation it improves efficiency, performance and safety. Glass fiber fabricators find it especially useful in their products because it’s resistant to solvents, oils, chemically stable, and an excellent thermal insulator. It can be used in applications most plastics can’t because its incombustible and self-extinguishing.
Plastic sheets, insulation boards or blankets and glass based laminates like the impressive strength, low weight and non-corrosive advantages. This offers protection for electrical transformers, jigs and other metal parts that would otherwise corrode, making performance cost-effective.
Gaskets, bearing surfaces and release sheets are some of the most demanding applications and the smooth surface, this produces in addition to the many other properties listed, makes this the best choice.
