FIMATEST – Quality Assessment of Composites

JEC Composites Magazine No. 102, 2016, 49-51

The glass and carbon fibre industry continues to grow rapidly and into many new applications. A key quality characteristic of composite materials is the bond strength between fibre and matrix. This article describes the different mechanisms, as well as future testing solutions to ensure that a constant quality can be measured and achieved.

DIN SPEC 8100 – New Standard for the Composite Industry

The DIN SPEC 8100 “Automated drapability testing for woven and non-crimp fabrics used in continuous fiber reinforced plastics” was developped and implemented by Textechno in cooperation with DIN, as well as SAERTEX, the Bremen Fibre Institute (FIBRE), Groz-Beckert KG and FTA Albstadt. Read about its making-of that has been highlighted by DIN as practical example.

New European Standard for Crimp- and Shrinkage Tests

The new European standard EN 14621 partially replaces the German standards DIN 53840 and DIN 53866, and contains crimp contraction- and shrinkage tests on multifilament yarns. Measurements according to the new standard can be automated by means of the automatic crimp- and shrinkage tester TEXTURMAT ME+.

The tester has already been in use for measurements according to the DIN standards as well as to ASTM D 4031 (crimp properties) and ASTM D 2259 (shrinkage). A special software for testing air-textured yarns enlarges the scope of application of this tester. More Articles …
