Saertex GmbH & Co. KG (Saerbeck, Germany) offered several new products, among them SAERTEX LEO, a composite system of  non-crimp fabric layers and customized core that meets the highest fire safety standards (IMO FTP, Part 2, Part 5) for offshore energy, marine and mass transit sectors. The company is also developing its 3D fabrics, made with “endless” fibers in the Z-direction that help resist delamination; fabrics are available in thicknesses of 1.5 and 3 mm. In addition, 3D “billets” or fabric blanks up to 50 mm in thickness can be produced for high production-rate applications with very high mechanical demands.
