The hottest polystrand company will be in the most

  • Detail

Polystrand is about to expand the production of thermoplastic composites in the most advanced factory in the United States. The method is to add glass fiber fabric to the specialty. "Dr. Jonathan hill, chief technology officer of adivant, said that strong plastic plate samples or short cut fiber reinforced plastic samples are installed on the fixture of the experimental machine. The manufacturer polystrand announced on August 6, 2012, Production will begin on September 1 at its state-of-the-art plant in Douglas County, Colorado (south of Denver)

in June last year, the company announced a plan to build a new factory of 11148 square meters and expand production near the transportation hub. After the announcement of the results, senior executives of the company said that the move was to support development. The company needs a place to expand, and the size of the new plant is more than twice that of the original plant in Montrose. This new plant near Denver is a plant that uses the most advanced technology to produce continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites, and it is also the largest plant in the world to produce such products

polystrand manufactures and sells continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites in the form of prepreg strips, coils, sheets, laminates and preformed inserts. Prepreg strips with standard widths of 12.5 inches (318mm) and 25 inches (636mm) can be laminated to form sheets and plates. This new plant will bring the annual output of polystrand reinforcements to 45360 tons

polystrand's prepreg belt is made by impregnating continuous fibers with a thermoplastic resin with a proprietary process, which is widely used in various ship types. A variety of resins have been used, and the resin can contain recycled materials. The continuous fiber content in the prepreg of polystrand is generally 60 ~ 80% (mass percentage), and the thermoplastic resin content is 20 ~ 40%. Such a high fiber/resin ratio is difficult to achieve by traditional methods. The reinforcement is fully impregnated, which avoids the concern of traditional thermoplastic composites about whether the fiber is saturated

polystrand pointed out that styrene is used in most commercial thermosetting resins, and closed mold process or special environmental protection equipment are generally required to control volatile organic compounds. Therefore, composite manufacturers are seeking thermoplastics as a way to avoid this problem and develop their business under the existing environmental conditions

it is reported that polystrand's products can minimize waste, improve productivity, and compete with steel and aluminum in strength and recycling. The plant in Douglas County will be a zero waste plant

polystrand's products are used as structural reinforcement materials in transportation, aviation, automotive, military/bulletproof and other industries. End uses include transport vehicle linings, aerodynamic components, anti threat armor and structural plates

the new plant is expected to provide up to 240 jobs in Douglas County in the next few years. The county is already one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. Polystrand management said that it is expected to transfer about 32 experienced employees from the Montrose plant to the Douglas plant
