Performance Attributes

EXCELLENT PROCESSABILITY
EXCELLENT PART SURFACE FINISH
DURABILITY WITH DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
ENHANCED SERVICE LIFE
  • Excellent Processability

    Excellent impregnation and wet-through characteristics allow easy unwinding and chopping as well as good flat lay-down and uniform dispersion with low fuzz and static.

  • Excellent Part Surface Finish

    Designed for use with Low Shrink (LS) and Low Profile (LP) formulations enabling enhanced Class-A surface aesthetics. <br> <br> 985 can also be used in pigmentable applications.

  • Durability With Design Flexibility

    Good product flow within mold along with excellent wet-through characteristics allow for complex decorative contours and high impact resistance in the final part.

  • Enhanced Service Life

    Advantex® glass helps fight corrosion, enhancing service life compared to standard E-glass.

APPLICATIONS

985 is designed for the manufacture of sheet molding compound applications used in the building materials, consumer goods, and automotive markets.

Storage

It is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage; the product should be stored in the workshop, within its original packaging, 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, there is no known shelf life to the product, but retesting is advised after two years from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.
