PARABEAM: 3D Fiber Glass Texture

In the composite industry, the products that act as “core materials” generally have the purpose of creating thickness.

As a result, the external skins need to act as structural materials as they, a smart way to build reasonably strong and lighter items.

On the market there are different types of interesting materials used as core interior, all of them with its own specific characteristics.

However, there are only a few materials which can simply replace such products, providing different properties: laminating “wet-on-wet”, excellent drapebility, a low resin consumption, no effect of delamination, and especially light weight.

For these reasons, the 3D glass fabric Parabeam® is increasingly being recognized as the ideal replacement for conventional internal cores (Honeycomb, balsa, plywood, or in expanded polyurethane foam cores). Generally, the main weakness of conventional internal cores materials lies in being the result of different materials joined together: hence a loss the effectiveness of the elements involved that, over time, create bad effects such as cracks, osmosis, losses, delamination.

The Parabeam® 3D glass fabric is instead realized with a continuous weaving of E-glass.

Its use ensures the realization of unique pieces with increased synergy and durability of the materials involved in the whole structure.

The Design Industry, continuously in expansion, is the natural habitat of Parabeam® texture.

Its effectiveness contributes to the ongoing development of many industries as the Naval sector,  Roads and Railways, Automotive, Aeronautics, Military, Construction and even in the Industry of Sport.

1 Evenly apply approximately 40% of the recommended amount of resin on the surface. (Refer to technical data sheet).

2 Apply the 3D glass fabric Parabeam® above the resin layer and roll on softly from the center towards the outside with a wool roller or a grooved aluminum roller to achieve a good contact with the underlying surface.

3 Apply evenly the remaining 60% of the resin.The capillary forces within the 3D glass fabric Parabeam® tend to impregnate the yarns automatically. The de-aeration is not necessary since the layers are thin and the air will come out from the sides.

4 The soft rolling process on the fabric layer will ensure a flat surface.
