Infiana Group (Forchheim, Germany), the world-leading producer of specialty films, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) enter their third year of cooperation. Just like in past years, both partners will be exhibiting together at the JEC World show. The world’s largest trade show for composites will be taking place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center from 14 to 16 March.

Through intensive research, the partners were able to further develop their release film technology over the past months. Visitors at JEC can look forward to new and expanded applications for FlexPLAS. “In regards to aggressive solvents such as styrene, we were able to significantly increase resistance. This, as well as the addition of new embossing designs to the FlexPLAS portfolio, gives our customers an even greater range of options,“ explains Soheila Salehi-Schneider, project leader for FlexPLAS at Infiana. “Through the joint build-up of this technological platform, we will be able to expand the positive attributes of FlexPLAS to address numerous new and ambitious application areas in the composites field. We are planning further investments in the months ahead,“ adds Dr Gregor Graßl, project leader at Fraunhofer IFAM.
