SURFACING TISSUE FOR GRP

Regina Surfacing Tissue and Veil has been designed for use in the surface layer of a GRP or FRP product where a high quality surface finish is required.
Regina tissue will prevent cracking or crazing of the coating, stop water penetration and will outlast a non-tissue surface by many years. Tissue with both standard and fast wet out are available. Regina SA tissue provides a standard wet out suitable for manual lay up. The styrene-acrylic binder is compatible with all types of vinyl ester, polyester and epoxy resins.

Regina LN tissue includes a styrene based binder providing a faster wet out.

Regina surfacing Tissue meets the requirements of:

British Standard BS4994
"Design and Construction of Vessels and Tanks in Reinforced Plastics".

US Standard ASME/ANSI RPT-1-1989
"Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Corrosion Resistant Equipment".

Application

P250 AL to P900 AL surface tissue has been designed for use for the surface protection of FRP/GRP products, where a high quality surface finish is required without the cost of a full gel-coat, or where there is risk of "print through" of the reinforcing mat. Correct use will avoid cracking or crazing of the coating and can reduce water penetration. Any intermediate thickness can be produced between 250 micron and 900 micron.

The corrosion resistance is Acid Class 1, (DIN12116), Alkali Class 2 (DIN52322) and Hydrolytic Class 3 (DIN12111). The binder, a styrene acrylate copolymer, is compatible with all types of vinyl-ester, polyester and epoxy resins.

The AL surface tissue is used in the inner corrosion barrier to form a resin-richness for additional weathering protection. The tissue meets the requirements of British Standard BS 4994, "Design and Construction of Vessels and Tanks in Reinforced Plastics", and American Standard ASME/ANSI RPT-1-1989, "Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Corrosion Resistant Equipment"

Characteristics

The tissue is made from five or six layers of continuous fibres, 12 micron dia. of a low-melt, corrosion resistant glass,C-glass (ASTM C162-93),randomly dispersed across the sheet
