Special Technical Products

Dense staple fiber fabrics with grammages up to 690 g/m² and a thickness of up to 2.2 mm. In addition to offering excellent thermal insulating properties, staple fiber fabrics are particularly soft and absorbent and thus ideal for use as coating carriers for sealants and expansion joints. As a result of their good drapability, thickness and uniform resin absorption, staple fiber fabrics are ideal for use as reinforcing material in model construction and mold making.

Due to its special structure, glass staple fiber sliver is the ideal weft material for decorative glass fiber fabrics. Chopped fiber strands are used for the production of glass fiber mats for thermal insulation and mixed non-wovens for glass-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics. Single and plied yarns made from roving are perfect for producing fabrics, braided cords and glass fiber packings. The good alkaline and acid resistance of the C-glass filaments used in the staple fiber sliver makes it ideal for all applications that require a high chemical resistance.

Corner beads made from heavy duty, alkaline-resistant fiberglass mesh are designed to reinforce the corners of buildings and window reveals. With a high degree of stability, they offer optimum edge protection and form corners which are neat and true. Vitrulan corner beads can be used with any plaster system. The coarse mesh also makes them suitable for use with coarse-grained mineral systems. We offer two different types depending on the application: preformed corner beads with reinforced angle to produce a straight edge in areas subject to heavy wear and tear. Flexible corner beads with predefined mesh angle for ease of use. Supplied on rolls, the bead can be cut to the required length to reinforce building corners and window reveals.

The patented shielding fabric for reinforcing exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) is interwoven with a special metal thread which enables it to effectively attenuate electromagnetic radiation, especially in the frequency range of mobile phone networks. The high-quality synthetic finish applied to the glass mesh fibers makes them alkaline-resistant to the render/plaster system.
