Process is a breakthrough that provides a superior performing product in a number of important respects.
Process produces a fabric that is
significantly stronger than traditional glass
fabric. Also, composite laminates produced
with our fabric exhibit superior properties.
Thinner & Flatter -
yarns yield a thinner, flatter glass fabric for the
same weight and construction.
More Consistent –
fabric construction yields a more consistent, more uniform fabric, where weave knuckles are minimized, and glass fibers are more uniformly distributed.
Improved Electrical & Thermal Properties –
technology provides a better interface between the
glass fiber reinforcement and the resin matrix,
yielding improved electrical and thermal properties.
Improved Coated Fabrics –
fabric is less porous than traditional glass fabric
produced with twisted yarns. The result is a
higher quality, resin-rich coated fabric, where
pinholes and exposed fibers are minimized.
This can also lead to significant material cost
savings for coating operations.
Improved Dimensional Stability – The high strength properties of
our glass fabric combined with the more
uniform distribution of our
glass fiber yarns, provides for improved dimensional stability in laminate for circuit board applications.
Improved Drilling & Machining –
fabric construction yields a more consistent, more uniform fabric, where weave knuckles are minimized and glass fibers are more uniformly distributed, resulting in improved drilling and machining characteristics.
Improved CAF Resistance -
DirectFinish™ sizing application provides a better interface between the glass fiber reinforcement and the resin matrix, thereby helping to reduce the incidence of CAF-related failures in circuit board applications.
