Scott & Fyfe, a leading designer and producer of technical textiles, says that its innovative 3D reinforcement textile Polymat FR, launched at the JEC World 2016 show, is developed specifically for high performance composite applications where strength, weight reduction and fire performance are critical parameters – in the transportation, construction, and marine sectors.

“Polymat FR offers engineers and designers a more technologically advanced solution to the challenge of creating strong, lightweight structures in GRP that still comply with the various fire and regulatory requirements,” commented Michael Harrison, Business Director, Scott & Fyfe.

“Thanks to its novel glass core, it may be possible to reduce laminate thickness, and thereby weight, whilst achieving comparable mechanical strength properties – particularly attractive benefits to the mass transit sectors.”
