Surfacing veils are used extensively in production of FRP products used in corrosive environments. Surfacing Veils are non-woven materials, composed of uniformly distributed glass fiber strands. They are designed to add reinforcement at the surface of a laminate and provide a smooth, resin-rich, durable surface. The surface layer is an aesthetic enhancement and corrosion resistant for finished parts, such as chemical tanks, pipes and equipment, and the weather ability of wind generators and turbine blades. Our company provides two types of veils: E-glass veil (V1 series) and C-glass veil (V2). Both of them are mainly applicable to hand lay-up process, Filament winding process and others.
Surfacing Veils are manufactured to meet ISO 9001 standards. They are composed of wet-laid, randomly dispersed E-glass or C-glass fiber strands bonded with an appropriate resin. They are characterized by uniform fiber dispersion, a smooth surface, soft hand-feeling, low binder content, unbreakable and long life time property, fast resin impregnation and good mold obedience.
E-glass veils have good insulation property, while C-glass veils provide better corrosion resistant liner. Surfacing Veils are applicable to FRP molding processes such as hand lay-up, Filament winding, vacuum injection and press molding, etc.
V1 and V2 Surfacing Veils are 50 inches in standard width, 300 meters or 1500 meters in length. They are wound on a cardboard inner tube with an inside diameter of 15cm (6"). The 300 meter rolls are wrapped in polyethylene film and packed in cartons (1 roll per carton), which are then packed on pallets. For the 1500 meter rolls, it is one roll per pallet. Special package can be available according to customer’s requirements.
Cartons containing the rolls of glass fiber veil should be stored vertically on a pallet. Stowing material must have smooth surfaces without sharp edges. Cartons should be handled with care and with the appropriate equipment in order to prevent any damage.
It is recommended that the material is stored in a cool, dry area in which the temperature should not exceed 35°C (95°F) and the relative humidity should be kept below 75%. Material should remain in its original packaging until immediately before use. It is advised that stock rotation of the material is exercised. If the above conditions are respected, the material should not undergo significant changes when stored for extended periods of time.
To ensure safety and avoid damage to the product, skids should not be stacked more than two high. When stacking two pallets high, care should be taken to correctly and smoothly place the top pallet.
