(1) The Key to Achieving Fire Resistant Material for the Transportation Sector


These days there are numerous promising materials technologies available that aim to fulfil both design and performance standards. Sectors within the transportation industry however face very specific challenges which still need to find smart solutions. One of the most important ones can be found in trains and aircrafts. In both cases interior is usually designed in ways that vertical and ceiling surfaces are comprised of materials which provide fire and smoke resistance and at the same time keep weight at a minimum. However most materials - even though fire safe - still don't meet all safety requirements...

(2) Glass Fabrics Value in Transportation


Due to the rapid technical development in the past years, various advantageous applications for fiberglass fabrics have been made possible. The widely observeable implementation of glass fabrics can give many players in the transportation industry a leg-up, as the composite not only serves to replace expensive materials, but delivers advantages such as weight reduction, corrosion resistance and fire retardancy.

However only in the form of sandwich structures, fiberglass exploits it’s full potential and adds extra features to products. Especially in the transportation industry, where special applications have been found.

(3) Reinforcing Marble with Glass Fabrics


The use of marble on building exteriors has evolved from massive bearing walls of solid stone to thin stone marble façade systems attached to the building. Unfortunately, the thinness that makes these thin-stone facades so economically appealing, also makes them less resilient under forces of changing temperature, seismic loads, gravity, wind, and moisture.To solve this problem, Parabeam® 3-D glass fabrics can be applied to reinforce both flat marble façades and curved column cladding. This whitepaper shows how fiberglass reinforcement can be implemented and what the advantages are. Keywords: fiberglass – 3D glass fabrics– thin-stone reinforced – marble facade.

(4) Glass Fabrics as Tooling Material


Behind every well-made composite part sits a well-constructed tool. And critical to its success is design and material selection. Did you know that glass fabrics make perfect tooling material? Whenever composite parts are required to meet high-performance standards at a high production rate, glass fabrics are an inexpensive, popular choice. In this whitepaper we explain how glass fabrics such as woven fiberglass structures offer unique advantages as tooling material.

(5) Glass Fabrics Surface Finishing


Surface finishing is a broad range of industrial processes that alter the surface of a manufactured item to achieve certain properties and designs. A variety of processes and materials can be integrated on the surface of glass fabrics to make the perfect composite for nearly any application. 

Our R&D department has examined several ways of surface finishes, such as metal and stone coatings, and described the results in a short paper.
