Full flexibility for your lightweight laminate
W8SVR Fabric is the basis for your own thermoplastic laminate or sandwich panel. Continuous processes benefit from the on-roll format - in widths up to 2.8 m. The fibres in this UD-Tape fabric are fully protected in a thermoplastic matrix right from the start. Even a simple vacuum is enough to create pore-free, environmentally friendly, recyclable lightweight solutions. The complete impregnation of the fibres enables optimal absorption of the forces acting on them. Unlike thermoset prepregs, W8SVR Fabric comes with infinite shelf life , allows for hazard-free processing and does not require sub-ambient storage. Pre-stretched and the absence of overly high ondulation guarantee maximum mechanical performance.
