WH Lipex (Munich, Germany) part of Woollard & Henry Group (Aberdeen, U.K.) and a fiberglass technology company, introduces the single fiber applicator, a coating module that enables manufacturers to apply sizing to individual glass fiber strands.

Fibers are no longer in bundles, but are instead individually displayed, ensuring all individual filaments are better enclosed with wetting additive. This performance is said to significantly increases the sizing amount on the fibers, improving their bonding capabilities.

Further, WH Lipex says the applicator’s main advantages include increasing the end product’s mechanical properties, thus offering new possibilities for weight and cost reduction.
