BGF engineers high performance fabrics to meet the stringent criteria of the advanced composites industry. Three different fibers are utilized: fiberglass, aramid, and carbon. Each fiber offers its own unique advantages when engineered into a woven fabric, thus allowing the highest performance possible from the end product.
Aramid fibers are several times stronger than steel, light weight, and nonflammable. Carbon provides very high strength & high thermal conductivity and is very low in weight & density. Fiberglass has high tensile strength, high heat & chemical resistance, and is dimensionally stable. BGF’s finish technology creates a bond between the specified fabric and our customer’s resin system. The resulting composite fabric meets or exceeds military, aerospace, and other relevant specifications.
Applications: Aircraft interiors, primary and secondary structures, ducting, windmill blades, helicopter rotor blades, radomes, avionics, brake linings, transportation/automotive, tooling.
