Since their development over
60 years ago, woven glass fibre fabrics have become indispensable
throughout industry – mostly when used to reinforce
materials such as polyester, epoxy and other resins.
the synthetic polymer silicone – chemically
inert and thermally stable – was produced for use as
a sealant or bonding agent. However the rapidly expanding
market for fabric architecture prompted the increasing use
of silicone for coating glass fibre fabrics.
Atex from P-D Interglas Technologies Ltd is the culmination
of this hi-tech development – resulting in a high-strength,
flexible fabric ideal for creating lightweight membrane structures
that embrace a new contemporary freedom of form, lightness
and ecological appeal.
The number of architectural applications
for Atex fabrics
are only limited by the designer’s imagination, not
by their impressive characteristics...
