HighFlow fabric enables the marine industry to deliver faster manufacturing

13 Mar 2019

Ahlstrom-Munksjö introduces a product from its HighFlow platform. HighFlow Marine glass and carbon fiber reinforcement fabrics are positioned for the marine industry.

HighFlow fabric delivers high resin infusion speed and minimizes air voids in the structure. Making the manufacturing process faster and more effective.

Pekka Helynranta, VP Building and Wind, said:

“We have seen manufacturers moving from open mold to closed mold processes. HighFlow platform is our response to the industry change. It delivers unrivalled resin infusion speed, minimizes air voids and reduces costs by up to 15%”

“We believe that this new fabric will become the product of choice in vacuum infusion processes”.

HighFlow Marine is the second product launch from the HighFlow platform, a range of high performance reinforcement fabrics designed to deliver unrivalled performance for manufacturing lightweight composite materials. We have the expertise to develop reinforcement fabrics with customized infusion speeds, without limitation of fabric construction or weight.

Pekka says:

“Our glass and carbon fiber HighFlow products open up clear opportunities in marine, but also in other composite applications where improved and tailor-made resin infusibility constitutes a clear benefit. We are already exploring additional applications outside of existing Wind Energy and Marine markets”

The HighFlow Marine product range consists of several unidirectional and biaxial reinforcement fabrics, with various infusion speeds for marine manufacturing. They are currently available in both glass fiber and carbon fiber versions.
