FRT Tapes also supplies UDMAX™ Tapes in a semi consolidated  0°/90° Crossply lay-up, in roll form.  The first commercially available product is UDMAX GPP™ 45-70 CROSS PLY, a product suitable for continuous lamination processes used in a variety of composite solutions (such as skin layer of sandwich panels)

TAILORED SERVICE

IN-HOUSE CUSTOMIZED TAPE SLITTING

FRT’s high end slitting equipment can slit UDMAX™ tapes precisely and in custom widths – starting at 5mm wide to larger sizes, as the customer requires. Additionally, using a high speed winding equipment, tapes can be winded under a controlled tension on the core in a parallel or cross wound manner. Depending on material specifications, UDMA™ tape rolls can be delivered up to 4,000 running meters of length.
