Outstanding Mechanical Properties
Excellent shear and hydrostatic properties in all major resin systems, provide maximum part strength, long service life and hydrostatic design basis.
Fast, uniform strand wet-out in all major resin systems, results in optimized part production speed and increased productivity, reducing manufacturing costs.
Excellent glass/resin bonding in polyester, vinyl ester, polyurethane, acrylic, and epoxy resins, providing the processor maximum flexibility with one input glass. This reduces inventory and eliminates the need for costly downtime and labor during product change overs.
Smooth run-out combined with low fuzz properties, result in smoother parts and less downtime for clean-up, enabling higher efficiencies and lower manufacturing costs.
Excellent corrosion resistance with Advantex® Glass compared to standard E-glass: providing longer service life in applications facing corrosion.
PipeStrand® S1000 roving is specifically designed to match the unique needs of the low-pressure filament winding market. Compatible with polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy and polyurethane resins, it serves a variety of applications: water distribution (water desalination, water treatment, sewage), industrial (petrochemical), transportation (marine), infrastructure (light poles) and power/energy (LPG). PipeStrand® S1000 products can meet pipe user requirements for high mechanical properties, durability, corrosion resistance, and low weight.
