CIVIL ENGINEERING

The industry of consolidation, renovation or restoration of structural elements in the construction field is one of the most recent and innovative of which was applied multiaxial technology with excellent results. CFRP or FRCM systems uses a wide range of composites materials: Together with unidirectional tapes (woven fabrics), the most commonly used structural fabrics are meshes and quadriaxial fabrics in carbon, basalt and glass fibres.

SELCOM has been the pioneer in the Civil Engineeering industry with products made specifically for the anti-sismic reinforcement, recently took part in the POLYTECT project (winner of the Jec award 2010). Selcom’s role is to provide expertise on the production, optimization of NCF reinforcement and development of fabrics, in which integrate sensors, sensory fibers and nanotechnology.

Advantages of SELCOM Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs)

Mechanical Performance, Low Resin consumption

Full customisation

Cost savings due to a faster layup

Full compatibility with different kind of resins

Product Customization

Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) are manufacured to meet the individual needs of our customers. All the fabrics can be based on the final application in order to deliver the expected performance.

Fiber orientation

Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) are made up of layers with parallel fibres laid in different orientations, stitched with texturized polyester yarn.
The most commonly used Multiaxial - Non Crimp Fabrics (NCF) are oriented at ±45º or 0º90º,but it’s also possible to have ±30º or ±60º on request. The longitudinal direction of 0° is always the direction of the length of the roll and the stitching direction.

Drapeability

The parallel fibre layers are stitched with a texturized polyester yarn.
There can be different stitching types, depending on the final application. Our stitching patterns are Tricot, Pillar (Chain) or Pillar-Tricot.

Combined chopped strand mat or veil

All of our fabrics can be combined with additional layers of unwoven Veil from 10 to 100 gr/M² or chopped strand MAT from 50 gr/M² - 450 gr/M².

Powder coating

On all the Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) can be applied different dry thermoplastic powder, with the powder coating technology.

Adhesive

All the Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) can be finished with epoxy hot melt adhesive, to provide self-adhesive fabrics.

Fabric width - Roll lenght

Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) are produced in a standard width from 1270mm (50”) to 2540 mm (100”) and can be cut in tapes, depending on customer’s requests, without the fibres fall apart.
Standard Roll length is 50LM but they can be produce on customer’s need. We can produce up to 500 LM roll length.

Fabric weight

Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) in Carbon Fibre range is from 50 gr/M² to 1200 gr/M².
Selcom Multiaxial – Non Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) in Glass Fibre range is from 200 gr/M² to 3000 gr/M².
