JEC – the world’s largest guide fair for Composites

Last week the world’s largest guide fair for the composite value chain from raw material to processing technology till the final products took place in Villepinte Exhibition Centre, Paris.

We were represented on this fair together with our partners Johns Manville, Dipex, Elantas, Sirca and others. Already on the first day essentially more visitors could be counted than the years before, which is suggested to a further unbroken positive development of the complete sector. John Manville took the fair as occasion to celebrate 50 years fiber glass production in Trnava / SK and we 45 years of co-operation.

Whilst the conversation the special interest was given to new and further developments of approved raw materials and additives: cut fiber Thermoflow® 641 for polypropylene compounds, MultiStar® 264 assembled roving  for SMC (sheet moulding compound) and StarRov® 090 direct roving for pultrusion. Moreover the new carbon fabrics and – nonwovens out of Tenax and Mitsubishi fiber which obviously also can be produced according to special customers’ requests and which are recommended as well for open but also for closed working. The face products are obviously compatible with the common matrix materials like UP-, EP and VE-resins.
