Innegra Technologies (Greenville, SC, US) will celebrate its 5th anniversary at the show, while demonstrating how products reinforced with Innegra olefin-based fiber can add value. The company has demonstrated damping, impact resistance, lighter weight, and unmatched toughness in a variety of applications, including many sporting goods, automotive, marine, industrial, wind, medical, blast containment, rope, netting, and more. Products will include Innegra S fiber, an olefin-based, multifilament fiber available in black and white, and Innegra H fibers, hybridized, multifilament fibers containing Innegra S combined with other high performance fibers such as carbon, glass, basalt and aramid. Innegra reinforcement materials are available in woven fabric, multi-axial fabric, scrim, braids, tapes, uni-directional, spread tow, knit, and prepreg. In addition Innegra can be processed in filament winding and pultrusion applications.
