Performance Attributes

EXCELLENT PROCESSABILITY
ENHANCED PERFORMANCE
ENHANCED SERVICE LIFE
  • Excellent Processability

    Designed for excellent processing at various line speeds, ME1958 features easy unwinding and chopping, flat lay-down, and uniform dispersion with low fuzz and static.

  • Enhanced Performance

    Increased wet-out allows higher glass loading due to excellent wet-through and impregnation. This can be leveraged to further enhance the mechanical strength and stiffness of the composite part. <br> <br> Excellent fiber distribution for smooth surface aspect and consistent thickness of the laminate with minimal color shift in filled pastels.

  • Enhanced Service Life

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

Labeling

Each doff has a self-adhesive identification label showing the product description, net weight, and production date. Each pallet has at least two identification labels detailing the product reference, pallet net and gross weights, production date, and pallet production code.



Storage

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. 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 ensure optimum performance.
