  • Polyurethane Composites: A Versatile Thermo-Set Polymer Matrix for a Broad Range of Applications. Mechnical Analysis on Pultruded Laminates.
    . Polyurethanes have recently been applied to a broad range of technologies for. composite production. This paper will focus on the study of the mechanical properties of. laminates obtained by the continuous method of pultrusion using the same glass fiber. reinforcement and comparing the performance
  • Long-glass-fiber PP hits the road
    Long-glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene is proving its worth in a wide range of automotive applications. LNP Engineering Plastics, a GE Plastics Co. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman The Twintex process commingles the PP resin-fiber and glass-fiber filaments into one roving. The roving is then processed
  • Continuous-fiber Extrusions Make Strong Thermoplastics
    . Thermoplastics include polypropylene, polyurethane, PET, nylon 6, and PEEK, with other materials to be available in the near future. Reinforcing fibers are primarily glass or carbon fiber, but the process is suitable for aramids, metaramids, and other fibers. Here's a closer look at some other features
  • High-Temperature Tooling Board for Advanced Composites
    The advent of higher-temperature resins and carbon-fiber composites such as Hexcel's HexTOOL (R)*, created the need for polyurethane foam that can withstand much higher process temperatures. It needed to stand up to high-heat prepreg and autoclave curing while delivering substantial cost
  • RIM goes bumper to bumper
    and body panels. Placing long-glass fibers in RIM parts such as this truck's cargo box make them suitable for structural components. Encapsulating long-fiber inserts in RIM parts make them suitable for structural applications such as this tailgate. RIM parts can have highquality surface finishes
  • Hungry for large parts? Try a composite sandwich
    technology is a multistep sandwich composite made by combining three primary processes -- thermoforming, reinforced fiber preforming, and polyurethane foam molding. Complex, three-dimensional parts as large as 25 to 250 ft2, in production volumes beginning at 10,000 units, are possible. The new
  • Transparentportation: Concept car gets "all clear "
    polyurethane gel with shape memory. And the wheels, trim, wishbones, fuel tank, and headlamps are glass-fiber-coated aluminum. Even the indicator and dashboard
  • Medical Device Link . Medical Textile Structures: An Overview
    From their first appearance as sutures more than 4000 years ago to their present use in products ranging from gowns and wound dressings to arterial and skin grafts, fibers and fabrics have been explored as potential materials for novel applications in medicine and surgery. This continuous interest
