Phoenix Technical Fabrics bv introduced a range of synthetic surfacing veils for composites based on polyester fibres.

With specifications designed to complement a wide range of composite manufacturing processes, the product characteristics are highlighted below:

Product SL 40            

a 40g/m“flat” white binder free polyester veil, designed to give excellent coverage and reduced reinforcement print through.

Product SL 40B

a 40g/m“flat” white polyester veil with added binder to give high “stiffness” for improved dimensional stability, reduced necking and wrinkling for use with higher tension processing.

Product SLA 45

a 45g/mfine apertured binder free polyester veil with higher wet out rates and giving a characteristic patterned surface.

Product SLB 60

a 60g/m“flat” black binder free polyester veil made using fine denier, solution dyed black fibres designed to give full even black finish with no bleed of colour into the resin.

Product SLB 80

as SLB 60 only at 80g/mto ensure fuller black finish.
