Established in the late 1980’s, Parabeam’s mission was to seek new applications in the technical textiles market.
A project team of engineers came up with an ingenious concept, adopted from the technology of velvet weaving. Instead of using the traditional mohair material, a 100% e-glass yarn was used, and the necessary research and technical adjustments to machinery, resulted in a promising new product; Parabeam® 3D Glass Fabrics.
On this website, you will find detailed information on Parabeam’s applications as well as guidance on how to processing. We hope that this information will inspire you to identify and develop new product ideas and at the same time point out the many advantages of our product.
Fabrics successfully tested in fire testing of materials
for trains - EN 45545-2.
EN 45545-2 defines a
classification system that specifies requirements for fire behavior of
materials and products used in trains. In March 2016 all conflicting national
standards had to be withdrawn by EN45545-2.
For a rail project in the
middle east, the Parabeam® product is selected for reinforcing interior parts.
In combination with a phenolic resin a sub-contractor successfully tested
Parabeam® for fire behavior. Within the next months the production of composite
parts will start and early next year first delivery have to take place.
