Description: Film Former for Glass Fiber SizesGeneral Information: COIM has developed a range of polyesters for the treatment of glass fiber. These polyesters come in powder and emulsion form and are collectively known as FILCO®. The products in the FILCO® line serve to size glass fiber, to optimize the mechanical characteristics of the fiber, or to bind the fibers for the production of mat.Typical Physical and Chemical Characteristics: Filco 362 is an epoxy-resin in non ionic water emulsionnon ionic emulsifier built in the polymernarrow particle size distributiongood shelf life owing to hydrolytic resistance and fine particle sizehigh mechanical shear stability to the diluted emulsionhydrolysis and sedimentation stability in a wide pH rangeCharacteristics of the dried film: clearnon tackyglass transition temperature TG " 10°Chigh thermal stabilitydoes not yellow at high temperaturecompatible with epoxy and all types of unsaturated polyestersquickly soluble in styreneApplications: Filco 362 is suggested as a film former for glass fiber sizes for:chopped strand for thermoplastic matrices (PBT-PC-ABS, etc.) filament winding rovingpultrusion rovingroving for translucent sheetInformation provided by P.A.T.
