Technical Fibre Products (TFP), a leading nonwoven manufacturer, will be exhibiting its innovative nonwoven solutions for composites at China Composites Expo in September. On display at the show will be TFP’s Optiveil nonwovens; these lightweight veils range from carbon, glass, polyester and aramid to high performance thermoplastics, and provide a variety of solutions for composites.

Examples include adhesive carriers, providing a barrier to galvanic corrosion, improving fracture toughness and acting as resin flow media. “A key application in composites is enabling a high-quality resin rich surface finish, particularly in industries such as aerospace, automotive and sporting goods. The exceptional quality of the fibre distribution in the veils makes them ideal for this, producing a smooth surface and ensuring even resin uptake and distribution,” the company reports.

An added benefit to Optiveil surfacing veils is their multi-functionality; in addition to delivering a high-quality surface finish they also impart functionality to the surface of a composite, according to the manufacturer. This functionality is determined by the type of veil used and can range from corrosion resistance (glass and carbon) to abrasion resistance (aramid), electrical conductivity, static dissipation and EMI shielding (carbon and metal coated carbon).

Visitors can see the full range of advanced nonwovens on offer and their typical applications, at the TFP both at China Composites Expo from 3-5 September.
