Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will be exhibiting its nonwoven solutions for advanced composites at CAMX, in Anaheim, CA, from 24-26 September.

On display will be materials from TFP’s Optiveil, Optimat and Tecnofire ranges, specifically designed for use in composites. These materials, which constitute a light weight and broad range of wetlaid nonwovens, can fulfil a number of functions in an advanced composite structure. These include:

  • Enabling a high quality, resin rich surface finish
  • Imparting surface functionality, such as EMI shielding, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, electrical conductivity and static dissipation
  • Providing a lightweight, effective carrier or support for adhesive films and fragile materials
  • Delivering highly effective, integrated fire protection at the surface of a composite without compromising the integrity of the structure
  • Increasing the mode-I and mode-II interlaminar fracture toughness of a composite structure by up to 400%
  • Acting as a resin flow medium to provide enhanced resin transportation in both inter-laminar and surface regions
  • Preventing galvanic corrosion

TFP also specialises in developing or adapting materials to meet customer specific performance, processing and aesthetic requirements. This is enabled by extensive product development capabilities, ranging from proof of concept lab work to trials, full scale manufacture and converting via lamination and nanocoating.
