Enka® TecTape Hybrid Roving combines twist free, aligned continuous glass fibers with thermoplastic multifilaments. Enka® TecTape Hybrid Roving provides the required flexibility and enables the manufacture of complex textile based reinforcements.

Excellent hygiene properties

The short distance between reinforcement fibers and thermoplastic fibers provides short cycle times during the conversion of the hybrid based textile into a composite. Fiber reinforced parts made from Enka® TecTape Hybrid Roving can be moulded—as with organo sheets—and further enhanced by tape welding or injection moulding.

Enka® TecTape Parallel Hybrid Roving Advantages

Textile Processing:

  • Twist free, no intermingling and flat
  • Constant width and thickness
  • Smooth surface, i.e. low friction Flexible for all kind of textile processes, e.g. weaving,
  • braiding, tailored fiber placement etc.
  • Specific local reinforcement of load path Zero waste production
  • For automated and economic processing

Consolidation:

  • Constant ratio of glass fibers to matrix fibers
  • Short melt flow distances
  • No shrinkage for straight glass fiber alignment
  • High melt flow polymers
  • High compactness
  • Consolidated parts are post-formable and over- mouldable
