TFP to introduce new high-temperature nonwovens at JEC World 2020
KENDAL, UK, February 20, 2020-
This year at JEC World TFP will be introducing some new, lightweight veils designed for high temperature performance in composites. These new polyimide and basalt veils are part of TFP’s OPTIVEIL® range and have been developed specifically to expand TFP’s selection of high temperature materials.
The polyimide veil is the highest temperature stable polymer veil that TFP manufacture, with a maximum service temperature of above 260°C – significantly higher than other polymers such as polyester and PPS. The material was developed as a high performance insulation material for space applications, designed to offer the temperature stability necessary to withstand missions to Mercury and the Sun, where spacecraft experience extreme temperatures.
