Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

KENDAL – Technical Fibre Products reports that a recent study conducted by the University of Edinburgh has highlighted the performance benefits of the company’s 6gsm glass nonwovens as adhesive carriers within Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs).

FMLs combine layers of composite and metal, creating a unique set of material properties that are an effective balance of the advantages and disadvantages of their constituent parts. Initially developed for the aerospace industry, they have many advantages – they are lightweight, have a high damage tolerance and demonstrate good fatigue, corrosion and impact properties. The versatility and mechanical properties of FML technology show promise for expansion into other sectors such as wind energy and marine transport, especially when combined with new reactive thermoplastic systems.
