Superior Impact and Shear Strength’s as compared to main competitors results from stronger links between the different layers within the mat as well as excellent resin distribution throughout the product. The performance of Matline is well above competition with 35-50% higher shock resistance. This is another reason products using Matline obtain longer useful life cycles. Even cross-laid fiber distribution of the product brings additional reinforcement characteristics versus competitive products. Water absorption is equivalent to competition.
