U.S. Liner Co. (Cranberry Township, Pa.) has developed ECOTEX, a glass-reinforced sandwich composite manufactured by laminating the company’s Versitex nonwoven, continuous glass fiber skins onto a chopped long fiber polypropylene and glass core. The sandwich construction is said to offer twice the impact resistance of dimensionally similar conventional fiberglass panels but is lighter in weight and costs less. Currently available in 0.1875-inch/4.8-mm thicknesses and widths up to 96 inches/2,438 mm in virtually any length, ECOTEX sheets are designed for applications in truck trailers, cargo and storage containers, building and construction applications, recreational vehicles, automobiles and military structures and equipment.
