Freudenberg Performance Materials will present surfacing veils and core materials for lightweight fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) parts at JEC World in Paris, France from April 25-27.

The company’s solutions for the composites industry include a variety of glass, PAN and PET nonwovens, as well as core materials. These products are designed for anti-corrosion coatings in piping and tank construction, smooth UV resistant surfaces for facade panels, and other applications for a diverse range of end products. Products made from fibre reinforced plastics must be equipped with surfacing veils to provide abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, smooth surfaces and mechanical strength.

Freudenberg will also be showcasing Enka Solutions flow media and spacers for efficient vacuum infusion, resin transfer and foam injection moulding processes.

These are characterised by their typical 3D entangled polymeric filament structures as solutions for VARTM, SRIM and foam moulding processes, ensuring the high performance of complex FRP parts at low cost and in a single pass.

The flow media enable high-speed and reliable resin or foam flows throughout the part. Applied as a spacer in foam injection moulding processes, they push the reinforcement matting and the composite skin against the mould and hold them in place during the process, allowing for a full wetting out of glass fibre and skin.

Enka Solutions has been part of Freudenberg Performance Materials since 2020.
