About Advantex® glass - A boron-free E & E-CR glass reinforcement

Need Corrosion Resistance - Take Risk Out... Put Advantex® -glass In

Overview

Advantex® -glass offers superior performance in composites facing corrosive environments when compared to E-glass. A proven product, introduced to the market in the late 1990's, Advantex® solution offers the unique attributes of being both a boron-free E-glass, and an E-CR glass reinforcement in accordance with ASTM D578, ISO 20789, and DIN 1259-01.

  • As an engineer or end-user, using E-Glass in your fabrication standards ensures longer lasting performance in corrosive environments.
  • Glass_fiber_reinforcements provide the structural strength of a_composite. In corrosion_make sure to use Advantex®/E-CR glass.
  • Advantex®/E-CR glass comes in all forms of products to ensure the entire composite_application is fully protected.
  • Use Advantex®/E-CR glass throughout the entire FRP application (Corrosion barrier through to and including the structural portion).
  • Using Advantex®/E-CR glass vs. E-Glass for pultruded parts can reduce risk and increase the life of FRP parts facing corrosive environments.
  • Advantex®/E-CR glass has over 15 years of proven field experience. A product you can trust will perform long-term.
  • As an engineer or end-user, using E-Glass in your fabrication standards ensures longer lasting performance in corrosive environments.

Glass fiber reinforcements provide the strength to any composite application. As an engineer, end-user, or fabricator selecting Advantex® (E-CR) glass will help ensure you will be specifying, using, or making the highest quality composite applications able to face the harshest corrosive environments. Advantex® reinforcements offer superior corrosion performance in a wide variety of markets and applications that can meet your specific project needs.

The evidence of performance

Advantex® -glass' patented batch formulation and manufacturing process provides our customers a reinforcement they can count on in the field. Lets take a look at what happens when Advantex® -glass and E-glass are subjected to 4 hours in 5% Hydrochloric acid at 95° C.

These microscopic pictures show the E-glass starts to lose its strength and slowly dissolve as the corrosive solution attacks the filaments. Advantex® -glass due to its patented formulation has no adverse effects and maintains its strength.

Practical Benefits
