Parabeam 3D Glass Fabrics are a 100% woven E-Glass material consisting of two deck layers bonded by vertical glass piles. During impregnation with a thermoset resin, the fabric is compressed but then immediately rebounds to its original height. The resulting laminate is strong, stiff, lightweight, and durable. Main applications: Sandwich structures in the marine, construction and transport industries, storage tanks in corrosive environments.
The 3D fibreglass fabric is a fibreglass structure, consisting of the bi-directional woven fabric woven together by vertical pillars. After being impregnated, the material has a superior property both mechanically and chemically. In combination with resin, it is particularly suited for being a core material in industries that heavily rely on factors such as weight, impact resistance, thermal insulation, acoustic damping, and high strength.
