single fiber applicator
Newly introduced and developed coating module, the single fiber applicator, allows coating individual glass fibers with wetting additives. On this single fiber applicator, the fibers are no longer in bundles on the applicator but individually displayed. This ensures that all individual filaments are better enclosed with wetting additive (sizing). This performance increases significantly the amount of wetting additive on the fibers and thus improves the bonding possibilities to the other materials in which the glass fibers are embedded.
Main advantages for this Applicator:
→ Increases the mechanical properties of the end product,
→ New possibilities for weight and cost reduction without losing mechanical properties for end products.
