Default checkmark 532c0226933c1e8d3a627c06fe543a847c8fd37eb08cacd61b6a83b3fc0c769f Enhanced service life
  • Fast Processing

    Excellent unwinding of doffs at various speeds. <br> Excellent choppability and splitting leading to excellent fiber distribution. <br> Negligible static build-up or fuzz under normal ambient conditions (see storage information). <br> Fast wet-out and impregnation.

  • Excellent Visual Appearance

    The excellent fiber distribution allows a homogeneous surface aspect with limited fiber prints, which results in consistent thickness throughout the laminate. <br> The product design insures absence of white fibers and fiber spring-back along with significant reduction of air entrapment, when used with the proper resin system. <br> Consequently, the product enables excellent translucency of laminates.

  • Enhanced Service Life

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

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 insure optimum performance.
