Fiberglass Chopped Strand Mat Production Line

Fiberglass chopped strand mat is an important nonwoven reinforcement material, which is main material of fiberglass hand layup process. The chopped fiberglass strand or roving is non-directional and even distributed, then combined with powder binder or emulsion binder.

 

The chopped mats are widely used in various FRP applications, such as, tanks, corrugated sheet, automobile parts etc., which has good wet out properties and high tensile strength. The production line takes the chopped fiberglass strand or roving as mat, so it has the characteristics of fine uniformity, high auto-control, lower energy consumption, easy operation and maintenance.

 

The production lines can manufacture powder, emulsion, non-soda and neutral-soda chopped mats. The line design width of 2.6 meters, 3.6 meters, the capacity is 5,000 tons / year and 8,000 tons/year respectively.

 

In Mat Production process, assembled roving is chopped to a specified length by a roll with blades and an elastomeric roll, and then falls on the transportation carpet randomly. Then the chopped strands are bonded together by either an emulsion binder or a powder binder. The chopped strand mat will be rolled in a certain width and length after heating.

Why we choose fiberglass pool

Rapid installation

Fiberglass pool is directly pre-fabricated from the factory, and ready to install. In fact, it just approved by the Council after four days you can swim. In contrast, the concrete pool can take months to complete, during this period, your backyard will look a mess!

Finish

Fiberglass pool has a smooth clean finish gel coat, not rough. No sharp edges or rough surfaces. Compared with this, a number of pebble pool is very rough they can hurt your skin.

Easy maintenance

In the gel coat finish not only looks great, but also it is very easy to take care. The surface is smooth and non-porous, so that it is easy to clear and stain.

Low chemical usage

Nobody likes to swim in the chemical cocktail, but some pools require constant monitoring and expensive chemicals. Not so, glass fiber FRP tank, so there is no surface chemically inert in the pool surface can change the water chemistry. Thus, it has very low use of chemicals and run your pool considerable cost savings.

High strength

The shell thickness of Fiberglass pool exceeds the Australian standards. High tensile strength glass fiber will allow the pool shell without cracking to accommodate crustal movement. No wonder fiberglass aircraft manufacturers are using to build the plane!

IFC Composites developed the world's first glass fiber leaf spring for 40-ton trucks

IFC Composites’ new light truck composite leaf springs cut 400kg of truck weight vs. steel version.Fiberglass chopped strand mat This leaf springs was displayed in 2014 at the 65th IAA for Commercial Vehicles (Sep. 25-Oct. 2, Hannover, Germany). Announcing that this development is ready for serial production, IFC's development manager Matthias Voigt commented, "In recent months, the development progress was enormous. We have made a breakthrough and are confident to bring our fiberglass leaf springs for the truck segment in series."
 

The focus for this heavier truck component is again weight savings, with a reported 400 kg saved compared to a steel component. IFC says this weight savings can be used in load or converted to improve fuel economy. The CO2 emissions also decrease and the vehicle benefits from the finer response and reduced tire noise.

Application of Fibre reinforced plastic FRP in Construction

Fibre reinforced plastic (FRP), sometimes referred to as composites, is an ideal material to use in construction, as it has a number of features making it cost effective and durable. These are two benefits that are very important to any building project.
 
Not only that, social and environment issues are changing the way people think about construction materials making FRP a more viable choice.
 
This is why companies within the construction industry should consider using FRP.
 
A study in the US forecasts a 4.7% annual increase in the demand for FRP composites. The study mentions that three-quarters of total demand would come from the automobile and construction industries – which points to the fact that a lot of businesses are already considering FRP as an alternative material to traditional materials, i.e. steel.
 
Two of the biggest key performance indicators on a construction project are cost effectiveness and durability. FRP falls under these categories for two reasons:
 
1. It has a low maintenance cost – FRP products are generally manufactured using a mixture of fibreglass and resin that make it more durable, thus reducing the costs over time as it requires very little maintenance; and fiberglass chopped strand mat!
 
2. Easy installation – compared to products such as steel, FRP is extremely easy to install. It’s also much lighter in weight which reduces the overall cost of a project.
There are many financial benefits of using FRP over alternatives such as concrete, steel and aluminium, with significantly lower maintenance costs being one of its biggest selling points.
 
In addition to the obvious fiscal advantages, environment and social issues will also highlight the business case for fibre reinforced plastics. The social aspect comes into play with large construction projects, such as bridges, that cause lengthy delays. Because FRP is easy to install, any delays can be minimised, thus freeing up traffic much sooner – a must on today’s busy roads.
 
Environmental concerns are playing an increasingly significant role in legislation. New laws and reimbursement schemes are persuading companies to lessen their carbon footprint. Business owners are demanding a greater scrutiny over the materials they use on construction projects in order to become greener. In the future, products with a longer service life, superior environmental performance and a reduction in maintenance costs, will be seen as highly favourable. These characteristics are what make FRP a highly sustainable product. Official website:http://www.zccyfiberglass.com

Why trying FRP cross arms?

Why should you start using FRP cross arms in your next transmission project?
There are 6 reasons to explain this.
 

1. Asset management
 
FRP cross arms can be manufactured in relatively short order, providing quality structures in the large quantities utilities need.
The current lead time is as low as 3 weeks. This is in contrast to the over 6 month wait for industry-quality steel for electrical applications.
 
2. Cost savings
 
The largest expense in replacing wood or steel cross arms is the cost of time to send the crew to the installation site. Installation can be particularly expensive if the only way to access the site is by helicopter, due to rough terrain.
Installation costs are required to replace wooden cross arms every 25 to 40 years, depending on environmental conditions and the original quality of timber. Meanwhile, FRP cross arms provide the possibility to skip up to 2 of the replacement cycles required by wooden cross arms as they enjoy a life expectancy of over 75 years. In overall life cycle cost analysis, this represents a significant savings.
 
3. Environmentally safe
 
In a world where environmental concerns are becoming a key issue, the minimal environmental impact of FRPs are attractive.
FRP made with fiberglass chopped strand mat, cross arms are environmentally inert as there is no leaching of chemicals into the environment. Because of this, some environmental groups are embracing the use of FRP structures in environmentally-sensitive areas like bogs and wetlands.
In the case of disposal, nothing from the FRP cross arms will contaminate the environment and as such FRP cross arms can be recycled (preferred option) or placed in a general landfill.
 
4. Durability
 
FRP cross arms are also a very durable choice in warm, high humidity environments where treated wood does not last very long and steel corrodes very quickly.
FRP composite cross arms and also proved the viability of FRP cross arms in showing resistance to lightning strikes, bearing structural loads well, and long term durability.
 
 
5. Raptor & environmental protection
 
In some areas, raptor protection is a particular concern. When these birds land on energized steel transmission cross arms, their long wingspan can bridge over the distance between the conductor phases and metal cross arms, causing injuries and potentially loss of wildlife. When this happens, utilities have to pay significant penalties; it is also a public relations challenge.
With the electrically non-conductive nature of FRP cross arms, such accidents and issues are preventable.
 
6. Long term performance
 
Using new materials and components always raises questions about long term performance.

As mentioned above, accelerated aging tests performed by an independent laboratory confirmed that two component polyurethane composite cross arms have an expected life span of over 75 years. This is significantly better than the expected life span of wood cross arms and galvanized steel (with no additional corrosion intervention once the galvanized coating is gone), which is about 35 years in most urban environments.Official website:http://www.zccyfiberglass.com

Binder Applicators System For Fiberglass Chopped Strand Mat

 The glass fibers are transferred from the conveyor belt of the forming section to another conveyor belt for the binder application. The forming belt will remain clean and dry everytime. Binding with powder is composed by 2(two) powder-binder-applicators, and a series of sprays of demineralized (distilled) water.

Both sides of the mat, the upper and the lower-one, are lightly sprayed with distilled water, that operation is necessary or a better adhesion of the binder. The special powder-applicators warrant an optimal distributing .
Between the two applicators a vibrator is applied providing that the powder is also passing to the lower side of the mat.

Binding with Emulsion

The curtain system used warrants a perfect distribution of the binder. The excess of binder will be recovered by a special sucking system.

This system pulls the air through the fiberglass chopped strand mat and a part of the binder will be taken off. By that mater the binder will be distributed uniformly and the excess of binder eliminated.

Obviously the binder will be re-employed after special filtering which separates the air and the dirt.
The binder is stored in containers in the mixing room and conveyed at low pressure by a pipeline to a small tank near the mat-plant.

A special device maintain the level of the tank constant. Also the recovered binder will be conveyed to the tank. A pumping system conveys the binder from that tank to the curtain distribution system.
