Performance Attributes

Easy Handling and Moldability
Process Efficiency
Balanced Performances
Enhanced Service Life
  • Easy handling & moldability

    Optimized chop length mix provides good confirmability to complex contoured molds.

  • Process efficiency

    Fast wetting and quick air release help reduce the labor required to roll out the part.

  • Balanced performances

    Moderate impregnation speed reduces resin consumption, resulting in thinner laminate with high glass content, and improved mechanical properties.

  • Enhanced service life

    Compared to standard E-glass, Advantex® glass helps with enhanced service life in applications facing corrosion.

Applications

Ideal conditions are at a temperature between 10°C and 35°C and a relative humidity between 35% and 85%. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. If the storage temperature is below 15°C, it is recommended that the product be stored in the workshop, within its original packaging, at least 24 hours prior to use to help prevent condensation. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, the product can be used up to 2 years from the date of manufacture, and retesting is advised after 1 year from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.</p>
