PD PowerStrand® - Customized solutions in high performance fibres

PD PowerStrand® is a new fibre glass product made by PD-FibreGlass. Higher performance and stronger resistance are the most notable features of the new product.

PD PowerStrand® is characterized by significantly better physical properties compared to conventional fiberglass. Higher tensile strength and increased impact resistance are the most important properties for this glass fibre which allow the application in even the most demanding areas.
In addition, the electrical insulation properties makes PD PowerStrand® the indispensable material for electromobility.

PD PowerStrand®  products with its high performance level are used primarily for composite in automotive and transportation sector, e.g. for aerospace applications as well as in ballistic applications. We ensure that customers can obtain everything from a single source.
 
The export of PD PowerStrand® can be subject to authorization. Each exporter is responsible to observe the regulations in his country. Additional import/export regulations from other countries might be relevant.
