TFP nonwoven applications at Composites Europe 2018

Composites Europe will open its doors in Stuttgart on 6 November, and Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will once again be exhibiting its nonwoven solutions for composites at the event. TFP’s advanced materials fulfil a range of functions in composites, including delivering a high-quality surface finish, aiding fabrication and improving resin flow and toughness, the manufacturer reports.

“This year TFP are delighted to announce that we have a number of composite parts on the stand to demonstrate the benefits and improvements achieved through using our nonwovens. Amongst these end use examples are an ice hockey stick, in which Optiveil was used to aid resin flow and enhance manufacturing efficiency,” the company explains.

“As well as a bike frame and wheel rim to demonstrate the superior surface finish achievable with a carbon veil and an aircraft fuel pipe which showcases the static dissipation properties of our materials. Further examples include our fire protection materials incorporated into a composite bus panel, along with several components which show how TFP materials can be processed using a range of composite manufacturing methods.”

The variety in the parts on display aims to highlight the versatility of TFP’s nonwovens. They are used in applications ranging from aerospace and automotive to energy, transportation and sporting goods, fulfilling requirements such as providing electrical conductivity, EMI shielding, abrasion and corrosion resistance, material stabilisation or acting as an adhesive carrier.
