line has fiber moduli ranging
from 75 to 105 Msi, and because of our fiber processing technolog

pitch fiber. Fibers in our YS product
line, like our YSH, have 7 micron filaments, but with fiber thermal conductivities as high as 600 W/mK. NGF now
offers chopped fibe
rs with various properties including XN
100C with fiber conductivity over 900 W/mK. NGF also has a unique low modulus product
line called XN
L. The modulus varies from 8 to 16 Msi, and the fiber is used in composite applications for recreation, industrial
and aerospace. Our CN
line provides high modulus, low cost fibers for high volume, commercial applications. Another major advantage of NGF is our a
bility to weave
a vast amount of lightweight fabrics with most of our fibers for structural and therm

are woven into the deck layers thus forming an integral sandwich structure.

When impregnated with a thermoset resin, the fabric absorbs the resin and due to the capillary forces of
the piles, the fabric rises to a preset height.

In this one step process a lightweight and strong sandwich laminate is formed that offers excellent mechanical properties for

use in (structural)
applications within the marine, transport and building and c
