Crane Nonwovens (Dalton, Mass., U.S.A.) now offers custom-tailored wet-layed nonwovens for advanced composites and other applications, made with fibers produced from Solvay Solexis Halar EXTFE and Hyflon MFA fluoropolymer resins. These high-purity, inert and nonconductive materials perform well in difficult environments, where chemical, electrical and/or elevated temperature conditions cause other materials to fail, according to the company. Cranemat FM (with Hyflon MFA) withstands up to 315LC/600LF, while it and Cranemat FH (containing Halar EXTFE) are resistant to acids, bases, solvents and pure water, without leaching or degradation of materials. The nonwovens are available in thermally processed fiber rolls, with weight, density, thermal properties adjusted to customer's end-use requirements. Select 231
