Performance Attributes

Compounding Line Efficiency
Multi-process Compatible
Mechanical Performance
Excellent Impregnation & Dispersion
  • Compounding Line Efficiency

    No catenary and high resistance to fuzz generation equate to low cleanup & high machine efficiencies.

  • Multi-process Compatible

    Suitable for all D-LFT and LFT-G processes and choppable to desired length.

  • Mechanical Performance

    Optimal adhesion to the Polyolefin resin matrix provides excellent dry-as-molded mechanical properties and hydrolysis resistance.

  • Excellent Impregnation & Dispersion

    Both D-LFT and LFT-G processes show excellent dispersion within the final parts.

  • Enhanced Service Life

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

Packaging

Rovings are available in a single-end internal-pull package. Each pallet weighs about 1 ton and can be packaged in bulk or Creel-Pak™ packaging format. Pallets are stretch wrapped for load stability and for protection during transport. Full doffs are available in weights between 15 kg (33 lb.) and 20 kg (44 lb.), and can be packaged in bulk or Creel-Pak™ format. All individual packages are wrapped with Tack-Pak™ packaging to aid package run-out and transfer. More information is available in the Customer Acceptance Standards.


Labeling

Each individual package is labeled with information including: product name, tex/yield, producing plant and production date.


Storage

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. The product should be stored in the workshop in its original packaging for 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during the cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, there is no known shelf life to the product, but retesting is advised after three years from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.
