Synthetic veil for FRP applications – Syntex SLA 45

SLA 45 synthetic veil

CHM Composites Ltd introduces a new synthetic veil based on polyester fibres to be used in the production of FRP pipes and tanks and suitable for use in filament winding, pultrusion, RTM, vacuum infusion and hand lay-up processes.

So what’s good about the synthetic veil for you – well, it offers a cost-effective alternative to standard glass surfacing tissue with a lot more benefits and higher performance results.  Yes, it’s that analogy again, the “new kid on the block” versus the “old timer”.


Synthetic veil or tissue for FRP: polyester versus glass

Syntex SLA 45 is a spunlaced and apertured polyester surfacing synthetic veil for FRP which gives it the following main advantages compared to standard C or ECR glass tissue:

  • Higher corrosion resistance
  • Improved UV & weathering resistance
  • Binder free (no risk of chemical contamination of the resin)
  • Fine aperture surface for easy resin wet out & infusion
  • Retains tensile strength when wet in all resins
  • Suitable for use in all manufacturing processes including pultrusion, RTM and filament winding
  • Enables better aesthetic  and smoother surface for pultrusions
