Innovative products for Thermoplastics, Wind and Performance Composites from Binani 3B-the fibreglass company take centre stage at ICERP 2013

Mumbai, India – April 4, 2013 – Illustrating the company’s leadership position in providing innovative and game-changing products and solutions, Binani 3B-the fiberglass company has received Germanischer Lloyd (GL) of its HiPer-tex™ W2020 high-performance direct roving. This certification complements the recent GL approval for SE2020 single end reinforcements. Both benchmark products benefit from proprietary sizings developed for use with specific resin systems (epoxy) principally for the manufacturing of non-crimped fabrics and FRP laminates for applications in, but not exclusively, wind turbine blades.

At ICERP, Binani 3B spotlights zero permeation lightweight composite compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinder of 32 litre capacity manufactured using HiPer-tex™ glass fibre and approved to ECE R 110. HiPer-tex™ high performance fibre answers the needs for high strength, high impact resistance, low weight and low system costs needed for high pressure vessels. HiPer-tex™ fibre benefits include strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and extremely high fatigue resistance. Building on the unique characteristics of its high performance glass (HiPer-tex™) addressing the needs for the high performing CNG composite applications, Binani 3B-the fiberglass company will also be exhibiting at ANGVA in New Delhi from 27 to 29 November 2013.

Binani 3B’s highlights at the ICERP show centre on the company’s expertise to develop new glass and new sizing technologies to design better value, longer-term, higher performance solutions in partnership with its customers. In the automotive sector, Binani 3B is exhibiting a leafspring in addition to the CNG tank.  A ballistic plate is also showcased highlighting Binani 3B’s expertise in applications for the defense sector. An electrical insulator completes the exhibition.

Binani 3B’s business strategy is focused on three key segments which are thermoplastics, wind energy and performance composite applications for which Binani 3B’s high performing glass fiber products offer unique attributes for numerable applications such as pressure vessels, ballistic protective armour, pipe rehabilitation, leaf springs and electrical insulators. By focusing on specific segments, Binani 3B has developed strong expertise in these selected end-use markets which allows us to deliver real added value to its customers.

Binani 3B has a rich heritage of expertise in the development and production of versatile thermoset and thermoplastic composite solutions. The company’s extensive product portfolio includes chopped strand, direct roving, chopped strand mat, continuous filament mat, wet chopped and milled fibre.

At the ICERP show, Binani 3B is clearly positioning itself as the Indian fibreglass reference.
