FIBER-LINE® JEC Show Review
FIBER-LINE® exhibited at the 2017 JEC World International Composite Event from March 14th-16th. The FIBER-LINE® team utilized this global event to introduce the market to Advanced Carbon Fiber processing. Carbon fiber offers many excellent inherent properties, but is often difficult to process compared to other high-performance fibers. FIBER-LINE® R&D teams have studied, investigated, and tested several intricate processing enhancements to better handle the fragile filaments within the carbon tow.
"JEC WAS YET AGAIN A VERY BUSY AND PRODUCTIVE SHOW"
Sales manager Ingmar Otter concluded that “JEC was yet again a very busy and productive show. There were several companies from around the globe that attended the event and booth traffic was quite high. I spoke to many individuals about the benefits of FIBER-LINE® Bondcoat™ on carbon for adhesion promotion and FIBER-LINE® Wearcoat™ as a processing aid in braiding, knitting, and weaving processes.”
US based Sales manager Bryan Arnold stated that “Twisted carbon fiber was one of topics I discussed most with our current customer and prospective customers who stopped by the booth. Most of the customers were interested in FIBER-LINE®’s ability to optimize the carbon tow for increased break strength or improve flex fatigue.”
Overall, the FIBER-LINE® team was very excited about the new opportunities that were uncovered at the show. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and engaged with our sales team. We look forward to working with you more in the future.
