Technical Fibre Products Inc. (TFP, Schenectady, New York) is exhibiting new nonwoven materials. The first is a novel PTFE nonwoven that acts as a release material and breather fabric and offers a combination of hydrophobic and non-stick properties. Also new for 2017 is a range of lightweight nonwovens with increased flexibility, smoothness and fiber volume. These new materials, designed for advanced composites, have been compressed to deliver a higher density, reduced thickness and smaller pore structure for a given areal weight. They have been designed to give improved conformability when working with complex mold shapes and, due to the thinner structure, improve the volume fraction achievable. The veil is available in a range of fiber types and areal weights. In addition, TFP is introducing a nano-functionalized nonwoven, created on TFP’s commercial nanocoating line in Schenectady. The incorporation of nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes or nanofibers into or onto a nonwoven can provide multiple benefits including enhancement of surface conductivity, EMI shielding, thermal management and structural properties.
