Performance Attributes

PULTRUSION
FILAMENT WINDING
MUFFLERS
REBAR

PULTRUSION

Reduce the weight of pultruded parts by up to 8% by using higher modulus glass, saving material cost.

PULTRUSION

FILAMENT WINDING

Improve performance by up to 15% in axial tensile strength for helically wound pipe compared to reference products.

FILAMENT WINDING

MUFFLERS

The glass can be used in high temperature muffler applications due to an annealing point increase of 25 - 30°C compared to current products.

MUFFLERS

REBAR

Higher modulus enables use of fiberglass rebar with modulus up to 70 GPa in structural applications, including previously un-accessible applications such as bent bar.

REBAR

TELECOM

Central strength members can be made 8% lighter, enabling increased fiber optic capacity in the cable.

TELECOM

LONG FIBER THERMOPLASTICS

Reduce the weight of parts for automotive applications by up to 9%.
