Composites: 101

Nil-Cor Composites Guide

Advanced composites are a family of high-performance materials consisting of a polymer matrix reinforced with a fiber. Nil-Cor Operations has pioneered the development of industrial products based on high strength, high stiffness, lightweight glass and graphite fibers in high performance plastic resins since 1966.

  • Graphite and glass fiber-reinforced plastics are revolutionizing aircraft, spacecraft, and sporting goods products because of the exceptional performance improvements in weight, fatigue strength, and durability. By combining these fibers with high performance plastics, corrosion resistance, durability, and temperature resistance that far exceed commonly available plastics are achieved. The Nil-Cor series of valves have been designed to achieve strengths equivalent to metals with the inherent corrosion resistance of these advanced fibers and resins.

    Nil-Cor offers a complete line of corrosion resistant, fiber-reinforced resin systems which provide resistance to over 1000 chemicals and chemical combinations. Nil-Cor materials also offer good abrasion resistance to suspended particles and mild slurries. Nil-Cor materials are unaffected by ultraviolet light.
