Composites Solution’s Phantom Veil is based on a 300/450 gsm fiber glass chopped strand mat, which is the base material; a 30-40 gsm fiber glass tissue; and thermally bonded polyester.
Various finishes can be achieved with Phantom Veil, including wood, granite, marble, stone, gold and brass.
According to the company, unlike plywood veneers and melamine formaldehyde (Formica) type sheets used in panels and table tops, FRP/GRP moldings with these textures can be molded as rounds, ovals, elliptical and other smooth curvatures, whereas plywood veneers and melamine formaldehyde can only be used as flat sheets.
“These textures are capable of enhancing the surface finish as well as the under layers of the FRP molding to high aesthetic levels of appearance and finish so as to create high glossy, glassy or matte surface finishes,” says Haren Sheth of Composites Solution.
Further, compared to other products, Phantom Veil offers improved strength and corrosion resistance, and is also water resistant and termite resistant, he adds.
Phantom Veil is already applied to temple roofs in the U.S. at Hare Krishna Temple, Houston, TX, and Sri Saibaba Temple Society of Ohio, Columbus, OH, as well as on the exterior of Summit High School in Spring Hill, TN.
