Ilium Composites, the global manufacturer of fiberglass structural composite reinforcements, launches their latest Chopped Strand Mat (CSM) as part of their ULTImat range of reinforcements.
The CSM incorporates a lightweight integrated polyester surface veil and is assembled using Ilium’s proprietary technology, without the need for stitching or a chemical binder. It is available right now in a variety of weights—from 225g/m2 to 600g/m2 and offered in rolls of 1270mm with non-standard widths available.
Developed as a premium CSM, the product will yield multiple benefits over its competitors; designed for functions that once required numerous processes and larger expenses. These benefits include:
• Superior surface finish, along with osmosis and chemical protection—as standard with
all Ilium reinforcements.
• The chemical binder-free production allows the use of non-styrenated resin systems,
and compatibility with a wider choice of matrices
• 100mm chopped fibre as opposed to 50mm alternatives from most competitors.
• Quicker production and improved laminate quality
Ilium’s Chopped Strand Mat will be on display at JEC World in Paris, from 3rd-5th May 2022, in Hall 5, Stand M79.
