NorPLY™ 1002 laminate is a cured glass epoxy composite material based on a unique, nonwoven, parallel filament construction. This type of construction minimizes filament stress that can shorten fatigue life in conventional reinforced plastics. NorPLY™ 1002 uses continuous e-glass filaments.
NorPLY™ 1002 is supplied as cured flat panels. Panel sizes up to 48″ x 72″ (1220mm x 1830mm) are available in thicknesses ranging from 0.030″ to 2.0″ (0.76mm to 51mm).
NorPLY™ 1002 is available in unidirectional, crossply or isotropic fiber orientation, each offering a different balance of properties.
NorPLY™ 1003 prepreg will soon be available for fabrication into various high performance applications such as retaining ring insulation for power generation and leaf springs for transportation applications.
