  • Excellent processing

    Continuous filaments help the resin flow consistently in continuous panel processing.

  • Improved surface aesthetics

    Mat chemistry and construction have been tailored to enhance surface aesthetics.

  • High mechanical properties

    Continuous filament construction contributes to enhanced high tensile and flexural performance.

  • Corrosion resistance

    Excellent corrosion resistance with Advantex® Glass compared to standard E-glass: providing longer service life in applications facing corrosion.

Applications

Truck trailer - Vehicle body - Translucent panels.

U101 mat is compatible with unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, acrylic and epoxy resin systems. It is designed for lamination of continuous flat panels such as exterior panels for truck trailer or vehicle body, sandwich panel skins, as well as flat or corrugated translucent panels. Additionally, it can be used as surfacing media in preforms made with Unifilo® 700 mats. (Image copyright iStockphoto.com. For application illustration only.)

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.
