Goonvean Fibres offer a range of composite Fibres and Flocks for cost effective applications

Resins and Composites

Fibres & Flocks for speciality resins and composites

Goonvean Fibres produces a range of short cut fibers that can be used to improve the physical properties of the base resin. The fibre properties are partly determined by the composition (fibre volume fraction) and partly by the processing, giving a wide range of property (and cost) combinations.

Composites

Milled Flocks

CompositesComposites are made up of individual materials such as short cut fibres to provide a combined reinforcement solution for weight, strength or cost reduction. The different fibres impart their special mechanical and physical properties to enhance matrix properties and produce material properties unavailable from the individual constituent materials. An example of where fibre composites have proven to be successful is in the manufacture of brake pads where a more expensive fibre has been partially replaced by a less expensive material without a significant reduction in performance.

Goonvean Fibres can offer precision cut fibres (in continuous filament form) using rotary and guillotine cutters. Capable of cutting from 0.25mm up to 50mm. For further information please contact enquiry@goonveanfibres.co.uk

Capable of milling various materials from 250 micron up to 12,000 micron. If you have a requirement for commissioned milling please contact enquiry@goonveanfibres.co.uk

Epoxy Resins

Epoxy Resins

Epoxy ResinsShort fibre reinforced composites are finding ever-increasing applications due to the ability of the fibre to improve the physical properties of the base resin. Short synthetic fibres and fibre flocks such as Nylon, Polyester and Aramid, have been used in thermoplastic polymer applications and natural fibres such as Cotton & Cellulose in thermosetting polymers (epoxy and phenolic resins). The properties are partly determined by the composition (fibre volume fraction) and partly by the processing, giving a wide range of property (and cost) combinations.

Goonvean Fibres offers a range of polyethylene powders that are commonly used in epoxy resins, varnishes and paints. The exact powder micron size will be determined by the end use e.g. lower micron powders are used in varnishes, mid range in epoxy resins and high micron size in paints.

Goonvean Fibres offers a range of micronised natural and synthetic powders. Characterised by their controlled particle sizes, they are specifically designed for paint, surface coatings, grouts and epoxy putty to ensure a uniform texture on the finished product.

Natural ground olive stones are odorless organic materials ground to fine flours, granules and pits. These inexpensive natural materials are used in a variety of applications such as paints, cosmetics and non slip coatings.
