Thermoset E glass Chopped Strands are reinforcements designed for use in thermoset resin systems. These chopped strands are designed to improve tensile and flexural modulus and impact, thus ensuring better dimensional stability at high temperatures. The chopped strands are cut to various lengths that are determined by the specific applications. They are designed to process with minimal fuzz and to provide rapid wet-out in the thermoset resin system. These products are used in end-use markets such as electric/electronic, transportation, and consumer.

Thermoset Chopped Strands are manufactured from a collection of continuous glass filaments gathered into a single bundle. Higher performance chemistry is applied to optimize glass/matrix adhesion and provide excellent bundle integrity.

The fiber bundles are then chopped into specific lengths, dried, screened, trace metals removed and packaged in reusable bags to meet your end-use requirements. The product is optimized to meet your cost and performance needs. The product is designed to be used in compression molded parts and injection molded parts.

Packaging

Super Sack: 1000kg (2202lbs), 1 Super Sack per 110cm×110cm pallet.
Individual bag: 22.7kg (50lbs), 40 bags packaged on a pallet.

Storage

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. Temperature should not exceed 35°C (95°F) and the relative humidity should be kept below 75%.

Fiberglass products must remain in packaging material until just prior to its use. If these conditions are respected, the glass fiber product should not undergo significant changes when stored for extended periods of time.

Stacking

To ensure safety and avoid damage to the product, super sack skids should not be stacked. Individual bags skids should not be stacked more than two high.
