COMPOSITES Releaseliner and hotmelts are key component for the production of Composite materials, fiber composites, textile products, CFRP materials and so-called "prepregs". To produce these products the specifications on  releaseliner/hotmelts are tremendous. Important properties as excellent evenness and dimensional stability are absolutely necessary. Also the further processing needs high performance on the substrate and silicone system. The individual release level must  be set and adjusted exactly to the adhesive level of the resin in use. Composite materials are made of high- performance products as carbon-fibers, glass fibers or aramide fibers and high-sticky resin systems.
Composites components are used above all in the  automotive- , wind energy- and aerospace industries, as well as sports equipment. Prepregs are two-dimensional fabrics made from high-quality fibers and impregnated with curable resins. Prepregs are the base materials for the  manufacture of fiber composite materials. The orientation of the fibers is the deciding factor to the  strength of the overall structure. Depending on the material and fiber type, these properties can vary widely and can be optimized for usage in the requested application. Carbon fiber- reinforced plastics are indispensable in high-tech  applications, where high strength and good rigidity  are just as essential as low weight. The properties  of these materials bring to bear precisely when  other materials reach their limits. All these  advantages are used in the production of rotor blades, ship and yacht construction and  transportation engineering. Main benefit: The typical properties of prepregs components are,  low weight, high strength and break resistance, as well as mechanical advantages. Our well known customers operates the most up-to- date facilities for the production of pre-impregnated materials. Typical properties of prepregs:   - hot melt systems - solvent-free - long shelf life - high surface finish of component Carbon fiber-reinforced plastics (CFRP) are  materials consisting of several components: a  basic or carrier substance known as the "matrix",  as well as a reinforcing second component -  carbon fiber - which is embedded in the matrix.  This combination results in high-performance  materials with new properties.  Depending on the matrix material and fiber type,  these properties can vary widely and be optimized  for use in the requested application. Carbon fiber- reinforced plastics are indispensable in high-tech  applications, where high strength and good rigidity  are just as essential as low weight. The properties  of CFRP materials bring to bear precisely when  other materials reach their limits. Typical properties of CFRP components: - low weight - high strength and break resistance - good rigidity - corrosion resistance - vibration resistance - low thermal expansion
