Performance Attributes

Challenging applications
Improved surface aesthetics
Improved performance
Corrosion resistance
  • CHALLENGING APPLICATIONS

    Good drapability and high-stretching provide ease of conformability and deformability to complex contours, while easy splicing and overlapping enable large and complex part design.

  • IMPROVED SURFACE AESTHETICS

    The open mat structure enables a consistent resin distribution throughout the surface, providing a smooth appearance behind the gelcoat. <br> Excellent panel clarity and translucency is provided by the use of glass material — no synthetic core or stitching.

  • IMPROVED PERFORMANCES

    Continuous fibers provide high tensile and flexural performance to the final part. <br> Lack of chemical binder provides improved smoke and fire resistance properties.

  • CORROSION RESISTANCE

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

Applications

Recreation - Automotive

UNICONFORM® mat is compatible with unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, polyurethane and epoxy resin systems. It is designed for the manufacture of complex shapes, translucent panels and fire-retardant applications in a wide range of industries including recreation, automotive, heavy truck, and commercial buildings.

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.
