Co-Fibre is Now Available in the UK from Cristex

Co-Fibre from Cristex

Lightweight construction, efficient use of resources and shorter cycle times are just some of the demanding requirements of the Composite Industry. In response, Co-Fibre® was introduced to the market by Cristex, providing the opportunity to reinforce parts in an economic and efficient way.    

Cristex says that Co-Fibre® is an innovative hybrid glass-fibre and polypropylene (PP) fabric that is unique and designed for high mechanical properties, such as exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio and impact properties.

Other advantages include:

  • Fast cycle times – Reducing cost and improving resource.
  • Significant weight reduction – Available in 700g/m², making it easier to handle and cheaper to transport.
  • Direct processing – Without additional resin.
  • Environmentally friendly – No solvent emissions.
  • Resistant towards environmental influences - It does not expand or contract in extreme weather conditions.
  • Chemical resistance - I.e. no corrosion.

Bruce, Director of Cristex commented,” I am delighted to launch this product and offer it to our customers. This will allow a continuity of supply in the UK for commingled glass and thermoplastic fabrics.”

Co-Fibre® is suitable for a variety of industries including Automotive, Construction, Aerospace, Industrial and Marine. If you would like a free Co-Fibre® sample and datasheet please email danielle@cristex.co.uk.
