Product improves the impact properties of particle boards.

StabilStrandEW 160 C is qualified as underlay especially for DPL processes and meets small ball impact of 20 N and large ball impact of > 1000 mm. These impact performance can be compared to the data of a HPL-composite.

StabilStrand EW 160 C protects the particle boards against mechanical damagesand stabilizes the edges.These are excellent product attributes as the furniture and coating industries require materials with high mechanical loads for the production of office worktops, kitchen countertops and laboratory worktops.

These StabilStrand glass nonwovens are the new solution for short cycle press processes. One of the benefits is the coating with one working step only. The resultant cost advantage makes this kind of coating attractive.

StabilStrand will be delivered as roll goods or customized in a width of up to 215 cm.
