TFP to Host Live Webinar

Technical Fibre Products (TFP) is delighted to announce that it will be hosting a live Webinar in conjunction with Composites World. The Webinar is titled “learn to enhance the performance, properties and production of composite structures using nonwovens”, it is free to join and will be held on 22nd November 2016 at 2pm EST.

In the webinar Nigel Walker, TFP's Director of Technology, will discuss the increasing demand for lightweight, functional materials which enhance the properties of advanced composites. He will introduce TFP's multifunctional nonwovens and the performance enhancement possibilities delivered using these versatile materials. The key benefits will be highlighted. These include improved surface finish and resin distribution, as well as delivering enhanced functionality such as EMI shielding, corrosion prevention and fire resistance. The use of  thermoplastic nonwovens to increase interlaminar fracture toughness will also be described; studies indicate a mode-I and mode-II improvement of up to 160% and 430% respectively, with minimum weight addition to the final composite part.

In addition Nigel will discuss the potential of TFP's new capabilities, including the creation of hybrid and nano-materials. The intention is to encourage composite professionals to consider how multifunctional nonwovens can provide the solution to their technical and fabrication challenges.

Register now at Composites World Webinars for your front row seat to discover:

  • The diversity in application and ease of use of advanced nonwovens. Learn how they can deliver a performance advantage with little to no process adaptations required.
  • The capacity of nonwovens to provide multiple performance and aesthetic enhancements simultaneously – providing multiple benefits from a single material.
  • The proven potential of advanced nonwovens beyond typical applications such as surfacing.
