invisiflo

Ilium has launched a translucent L-RTM composite that revolutionizes the current market. Allowing customers a far more cost and process effective solution. invisiflo will encourage greater use of translucent composites in various sectors, and will make visually impressive composite solutions even more accessible to a wider range of applications.

ULTImat invisiflo is a random fiberglass mat, designed for translucent panel applications in closed mould process. It exhibits high drape and excellent resin wetout for optimum translucency. Due to the omission of any chemical binder, Invisiflo is also suitable for use as a binder free CSM in new evolutions of styrene free resin systems.

New easy-conform L-RTM reinforcement

Due to Ilium’s unique stitch-free production process, feedback suggested that conformability was lower than that found in traditional stitched L-RTM reinforcements and subsequently, complex mould geometries could take longer to lay up.

The latest version of Ilium’s iSpring range now achieves the same level of drape and elongation with up to 66% less force. One additional benefit increases maximum elongation by between 24% and 29% creating a more homogeneous, natural drape. Under tension, the new material naturally spreads any given load over the entire section, rather than a smaller local area.

Ilium’s new higher drape reinforcement now has all of the pre-existing advantages that customers have enjoyed, better print-through performance, increased strength, improved fire retardant properties, instant preformability and overlap avoidance, but now with even more versatility and ease of application.

iForm- Ilium’s continuous product innovation

As part of Ilium’s strategy of continuous innovation, iForm has been specifically developed to elevate the preform capability of the current iSpring. Using infra-red light and vacuum technology, the time taken to preform a composite sheet does not exceed 2.5 minutes and does not require any chemical binders. The higher stiffness of preform offered in iForm allows perfect and precise placement in a mould in only seconds and with no further tucking needed in the corners. The time saved with iForm in production processes has the added benefit of significantly decreasing labor costs.

Conex Exhibition, Japan

The Ilium technical team provided support to FRP Services, Japan during the Conex Exhibition on 24th & 25th October 2013.  Customers were impressed with the demonstration of a simple and efficient preform system conducted in only three minutes.  Using infrared light (low cost consumption) as heating and a male/female mould under vacuum, the result was a soft preform that is stackable and still deformable if needed when placed in the injection process.
