  CARBON FIBER TWISTING

Key Features of Carbon Fiber Twisting

  • FIBER-LINE® is now offering proprietary specialized carbon fiber twisting and plying
  • Specialized equipment designed to carefully handle carbon tows and protect individual filaments.
  • Twisting process can be optimized for increased tensile strength or for flex-fatigue improvement.
  • Twisting carbon tows produces a geometricaly round profile

FIBER-LINE® twisting aligns the filaments in the fiber bundle which enhances processing and increases break strength.

 FIBER-LINE® WEARCOAT™ FOR CARBON

Key Features of Wearcoat™ 

  • Proprietary coating formulations used to help protect the fibers during further processing
  • Various coating methods allow for precision application of coatings for tight controls & tolerances.
  • Increases durability and abrasion resistance by encapsulating filaments in the fiber bundle 
  • Extends the life of the product by reducing the effects of friction and yarn on yarn abrasion 
  • Protects the fiber from degradation and filamentation 
  • Ideal for high abrasion and high friction applications in a range

 FIBER-LINE® BONDCOAT™ FOR CARBON

Key Features of Bondcoat™ 

  • Proprietary coating formulations used to bond/adhere the Carbon fiber to another surface
  • Helps fabric ends from pulling apart from the other ends
  • Created for applications where an untreated fiber does not have the ability to provide the appropriate amount of bonding charac- teristics to another material 
  • Provides adhesion to another fiber or sub- strate without impacting other performance properties 
  • Also used to better secure the fiber to the resin matrix it is introduced into 
  • Rely on Bondcoat to pass industry standard “burst” tests or stringent delamination analysis
