Our wide range of reinforcements



Our unique glass fibre solutions…



What is glass fibre reinforcement (1) ?
 Glass
 Minerals : silica, clay/kaolin, limestone,…
 Brittle



Advantex® - Clean & Sustainable
 3B – Only producer operating 100% with Advantex® glass
 Breakthrough in fibreglass formulation and technology
combining minimized environmental impact and maximized
product performance
 Boron-free E-glass with significantly improved corrosion
resistance across a wide range of aggressive environments –
Recognized as a E-CR glass (ASTM D578)
 Environmental friendly standard in the global GF industry



Advantex® - Environmental benefits
 Dust particulates reduced by >80%
thanks to boron removal (partial
volatization)
 >90% removal in fluorides species
 Reduction in energy usage & NOx
(>80%) thanks to new design and
combustion technology
 Increased energy efficiency reduces
CO2 emissions.



Advantex® - Performances benefits
 5% higher modulus
 High temperature performance - Ideal for applications that
demand long-term resistance to elevated temperatures
 High corrosion resistance – Longer service life and larger
safety coefficients for the same design (reduction in sections
and wall thickness – cost savings



HiPer-tex

TM

 High performance fibre
 30% stronger
 45% better in strain energy
 Improvement by a factor 10 in fatigue resistance



What is glass fibre reinforcement (2) ?
 Sizing = Chemical coating designed for maximizing :
 Processing characteristics
 Performances of finished parts

 Emulsion/dispersion in water



What is sizing ?
 Silane : Hydrophobic role but can also act as coupling agent
 Film Former : Provides protection and strand integrity
 Lubricant : Provides lubrication and protects the filaments
during processing
 Other Additives : Antistat, emulsifier, reactant…



What are glass fibre advantages ?
 Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
 High dimensional stability
 High fatigue properties
 High resistance to corrosion
