STABILISING WEB

Cristex offers a range of webbed fabrics and veils suitable for many applications. The use of lightweight surface webs (typically 5g – 15g) are applied to the surface of the fabric using a calendaring process providing a highly stable yet drapeable fabric. The end result is a fabric perfect for cutting and shaping without fraying or any significant weight increase.

 

The available coatings are WF1, WF2 and WF3.

WF1 is a light coating of 6gr/sqm for small moulds

WF2 is a medium weight coating of 12gr/sqm for medium moulds

WF3 is a heavy weight coating of 20gr/sqm for large moulds

 

The webs are also referred to as a ‘Weavelock’ finish. This finish is based on calendared web technology.

Cristex offers a large range of products suitable for Infusion Moulding, RTM, RTM Light, VARTM and Compression Moulding. The process of RTM is done using a rigid two-sided mould set that forms both surfaces of the panel. The two sides fit together to produce a mould cavity. A key feature of resin transfer moulding is that the reinforcement materials are placed in the cavity and closed prior to the introduction of matrix material. Resin transfer moulding includes numerous variations which differ in the mechanics of how the resin is introduced to the reinforcement in the mould cavity.
