Applications

Structural aircraft parts

Characteristics

  • Excellent thermal & dimensional stability
  • Performs with no strength loss up to temperatures of 320° F for extended periods.
  • Lighter in weight than E-Glass with higher specific strengths.
  • Sensitive to direct exposure from UV light; however, demonstrates little or no change in a composite when it is indirectly exposed to UV light.
  • Will not melt or support combustion, however, it will begin to caramelize at approximately 800°F.

Configurations

  • 500 yard roll lengths
  • Standard widths: 38″, 50″
  • Standard finish: 618 scouring process to remove extractible material (to less than .01%) maximizing resin compatibility.
  • Specifications: AMS 3902: This specification covers cloth woven from high modulus, continuous, multifilament aramid yarn.
