VOLUMAT™ 240P/200(4)

DESCRIPTION

VOLUMAT™ 240P/200 (4) is a needle-punched multi-layer fabric comprising a 240 gsm fabric and a 200 gsm mat. VOLUMAT™ is used in pultrusion processes, most notably to manufacture large parts requiring mechanical properties.

Benefits

  • Adds volume to the reinforcement to obtain thicker parts.
  • Dedicated to parts with sharp angles, as high volume fibers of VOLUMAT™ allows optimum filling of critical areas.
  • Woven roving brings transverse mechanical strength to finished products.
  • Does not fray during processing which gives a better surface aspect than most of other reinforcements like CFM.

VOLUMAT™ Aspect specificity:

  • Improve the surface appearance of profiles,
  • Creates a barrier against UV or chemical attack,
  • Saves preparation time (fabric + veil in one step).
