Carbon, para-aramid and other technical fibres are very often used in thermoset applications.
One example is carbon fibres used in microspheres which on their turn are put in syntactic composites. These materials are used to fortify structures, making them stronger without burdening them with weight. By combining carbon fibres and air, manufacturers can incorporate high performance microspheres into a wide range of polymer and resin systems to create composite materials to meet demanding strength and weight specifications. These syntactic composites help to protect the drilling pipes from high pressure in deep sea waters and serves as well as buoyancy in certain applications.
Our wide range of technical fibres can be used in many other types of thermoset applications.
