Performance Attributes

Efficient Procesability
Excellent Part Surface Finish
Excellent Performance
Enhanced Service Life
  • Efficient Processability

    Due to its outstanding impregnation and wet-out characteristics the product enables around 30% glass loading and thus reduced glass changeovers when making multiple parts with different end use requirement.

  • Excellent Part Surface Finish

    Designed for use with Low Shrink (LS) and Low Profile (LP) formulations enabling enhanced ‘Class-A’ surface aesthetics. <br> P204 can also be used in pigmentable applications.

  • Excellent Performance

    As a multi-functional solution, P204 provides excellent mechanical properties, dimensional stability and enhanced design flexibility due to proprietary sizing.

  • Enhanced Service Life

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

  • MEGADOFF™ Multi-end Roving – Decrease Splices and Increase Throughput

    Introducing MEGADOFF™ roving, a new doff option that increases the amount of glass from 40lbs in a typical doff to 1,939lbs. Increased doff weight eliminates doff-to-doff splices and improves the continuous flow of robotic and automated manufacturing lines. Zero doff transition also improves part quality and increases manufacturing throughput.

Automotive Class A - Structural parts

P204 product is designed to provide optimal performance in Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) transportation applications such as automotive ‘Class-A’ or structural parts. Also, it can be used for the manufacture of general purpose end-use products.

Packaging and Labeling

Each bobbin is protected by Tack-Pak™ plastic film. Please do not remove film during use. Creel-Pak™ packaging is available upon request.


Each bobbin has a self-adhesive identification label, showing the product reference and the production date. Each pallet has at least one identification label detailing the product reference, pallet net and gross weights, production date and pallet production code. The packaging system is designed to allow short term stacking of two pallets. When stacking two high, care should be taken to correctly and smoothly place the top pallet. It is recommended to use a plywood plate between the two pallets in order not to damage the lower pallet.

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.
