Scott & Fyfe (Tayport, U.K.) will launch at Composites Europe 2010 the new Polymat Free-Flow, a mechanically stitch-bonded reinforcement fabric consisting of a needle-bonded core sandwiched between chopped glass fiber mats, for use in closed mold processes. It reportedly offers high conformability to complex shapes, along with ease of handling and cutting. It is said to provide good elongation in all directions, as well as good surface finish.
