The presence of core-shell resin creates a weld spot at each interweaving of warp thread with weft thread. The fabric’s weave is firmly set; the yarns no longer move ensuring stronger dimensional stability.
The core-shell resin also guarantees a durable stratum assembly, with fabric and resin blending into one thereby eliminating any delamination: 1+1=1!
A MATERIAL THAT STREAMLINES THE PROCESS
VARIAN® is an exploitable composite with 1 thick fold while a classical composite with discontinuous reinforcements would require about 5 folds for an equivalent flexural rigidity.
The advantage of a single fold? Substantial time saving for the user with “ready-to-use” semi-products, already consolidated by us.
The thick fold, which is an exclusive feature of VARIAN®, allows for partial consolidation on half of the fabric’s thickness and for playing with the texture on one side and the structure on the other – VARIAN S
STANDARD MATERIALS FOR BESPOKE SOLUTIONS
The range of possibilities is unlimited, with variations around:
- Types of plant fibres
- Types of thermoplastics
- Fabric hybridisation (blend of composite/raw yarns in warp and weft)
- Yarn count
- Plain, twill, or satin weaves
- Interplay of colours, textures or transparencies
Culture iN technology leverages the use of special equipment for the continuous consolidation of VARIAN® over widths of up to 3 m and at production speeds that can supply mass markets.
