  • Freudenberg Performance Materials to showcase its advanced nonwoven solutions for FRP components at JEC World from March 5-7.
  • Their offerings include surfacing veils for abrasion resistance and Enka solutions for efficient resin infusion.
  • These products enhance mechanical strength and promote faster production processes in composites manufacturing.
Freudenberg Performance Materials (Freudenberg) will exhibit a wide range of technical textile solutions for the composites industry at JEC World, the leading international composites show, in Paris, France, from March 5-7, 2024. This includes surfacing veils for fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) components and Enka solutions flow media and spacers for composites manufacturing. Visitors can meet Freudenberg experts at booth P82.4 of the Baden-Württemberg International booth in hall 6.

Freudenberg addresses the evolving requirements of manufacturers of FRP parts with high-performance nonwovens. To achieve this, the leading supplier of innovative technical textiles uses a variety of technologies such as wetlaid, drylaid and spunbond processes, which enables a wide range of options for the choice of fibres, filaments and compositions, the company said in a press release.

Freudenberg offers a comprehensive portfolio of nonwovens, including glass, PAN, and PET. These materials are specifically engineered for applications such as anti-corrosive coatings in piping and tank construction, UV-resistant facade panels, and various other end products. Surface veils are a crucial component of FRP components, ensuring abrasion resistance, corrosion protection, smooth surfaces, and enhanced mechanical strength. Freudenberg’s nonwoven solutions deliver exceptional performance across all these aspects, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of FRP applications.

Enka solutions products are designed for efficient resin infusion and foam injection moulding processes. Thanks to their distinctive 3D entangled polymeric filament structures they are exceptionally well-suited as flow media and spacers in composites manufacturing processes.

Enka solutions flow media for vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) and resin transfer molding (RTM) processes promote extremely fast and reliable resin distribution ensuring full wet-out of the internal structure, whilst keeping the glass fibre reinforcement nettings and components surface in place. A superior bond, enhanced mechanical properties and even a reduced risk of wrinkling is then achieved.

The Enka solutions spacer applied in reaction injection molding processes using foam pushes the reinforcement matting and composite skin against the mould. This allows polymer foam to flow freely through the mould, filling the cavity completely and resulting in faster production processes that ensure reproducible high–quality finished products.
