SE1550 is a new single-end Type 30® roving compatible with all major thermoset resin systems and weaving processes. The new roving will be available globally and is made from the company’s Advantex® glass, a corrosion-resistant E-CR glass fiber reinforcement that meets ASTM D578, ISO 2078 and DIN1259-1 standards.
“SE1550 roving is designed for applications such as woven, knitted and multi-axial fabrics or pre-pregs where enhanced mechanical properties, including fatigue performance, are required for all resin systems,” said Eric Carlier, global product leader, Type 30. “Our advanced sizing and chemical binding technology makes the roving compatible and well-suited for use in unsaturated polyesters, vinyl esters and epoxy resins.” This technology was optimized for use by weavers to improve productivity by minimizing the changeovers required as they manufacture fabrics for use in multiple resin systems.
The SE1550 roving offers such benefits as processing with low fuzz, less cleanup and reduced glass waste. The high-quality fabrics can shorten cycle times, provide high resin pick-up and improve part aesthetics.
