Study on the Assorted Non-Asbestos Fiber Reinforce Composite by Beater-Addition Process


Article Preview

In order to get rid of health hazard of asbestos fiber, a new kind of non-asbestos fiber reinforce composite by beater-addition process, which is used for sealing and gasket, has been developed to replace traditional asbestos gasket materials. The mechanical properties of the new composite were tested, and the performance between it and asbestos sheet paper were contrasted. Results show that the density, cross direction tensile strength, machine direction tensile strength and ignition loss at temperature of 300°C of the new composite are 1.19g/cm3, 2.62MPa, 3.15MPa and 15.61% respectively, while the performances of asbestos paper produced under the same condition are 1.26g/cm3, 2.87MPa, 3.24MPa and 12.03% respectively. Excellent performance, low cost and simple manufacture process of the new composite make it is possible to substitute traditional asbestos paper and apply widely.
