V2 Introduces Non-Run Stitch Technology

V2 Composite Reinforcements Inc., Auburn, Ala., recently introduced V-Lock, a patented non-run stitch technology that reduces runs in non-crimp multiaxial fabrics. Colin Hallam, vice president, product management, said the V-Lock process welds the ascending stitches together on the loop side of the fabric only. The stitch medium remains polyester and thus eliminates contamination from off-gassing during the lamination/cross-linking process.Hallam added that the technology also makes it possible for fabrics to be bonded using a looser stitch. The company sees V-Lock applications in the infrastructure, construction, aerospace, automotive and marine industries, among others.
