As a popular and reliable supplier of abrasive attachment solutions for over 20 years, Scott & Fyfe are eager to announce the development and release of our new Polyfast range of technical textile loop fabrics for the ever expanding abrasives industry. 

  

 POLYFAST

 

The Polyfast range of fabrics have been tailored specifically towards the abrasives market offering a number of feature benefits in material cost, processing, end performance, logistics and user value.

 

With five styles in the range, Scott & Fyfe can provide a variety of strengths, weights and different characteristics to suit your needs. We can offer bespoke products to meet customer requirements with widths available from 0.7m to 2.1m. The products can be used with all adhesives systems and require less adhesive than competing products whilst providing better lamination and moisture resistance. The Polyfast range can be printed onto and are designed not to shrink which allows the discs to remain flat after production.

 

Speaking about the Polyfast range, CEO, John Lupton states “Scott & Fyfe has sold more than 100 million square metres of fabric into this market so we understand the needs of the end users. We are excited about the prospect of taking a new product range global. The new range of products represent an assembly of breakthrough developments forged by focussed and robust feedback from our customers.”

 

Suitable for coarse and fine abrasives as well as for use in high temperature applications, Polyfast is already receiving strong interest from the market.

Scott & Fyfe are pleased to announce that they have become a member of the Composites UK trade association.  The decision was simple to make as Composites UK play an integral role in the UK composite industry.

 

Paul McMullan, Composite Director explains that the decision to join was “due to a desire to play a more active role in shaping the future of composite materials both within the UK and on a more global platform. As a company committed to innovation and pushing the boundaries of composite technology, we felt it important to be connected to the UK trade association for composites so that we can positively influence the strategic direction of research and government support to UK SME’s within the Composite sector.”

 

The decision ties in with the ambitious plans of Scott & Fyfe to further grow their technical textile business within sectors including Automotive, Mass Transit, Construction, Marine, Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy. Membership also provides an ideal opportunity to network and engage with like-minded and ambitious UK companies.

Scott & Fyfe became a member during the run up to the recent Composites UK event, "Supporting Composite Industry Growth in the UK" - an event hosted by Scott & Fyfe within their Innovation Space. The event was a real success, providing a great opportunity to meet new contacts who are involved within the composite industry throughout Scotland.

The Pipe Fabric Technology (PFT) POD recently took part in the Oil and Gas Technology Road show. The road show took place on a unique exhibition vehicle that travelled to a different Oil and Gas company every day around Aberdeen and Glasgow. Scott & Fyfe was one of 18 companies to exhibit on this road show that took place from 2nd June to 19th June.

During this time companies including The Wood Group, Technip, Weatherford, FMC Technologies and One Subsea to name a few were visited. Over 500 key personnel from these companies visited the moving exhibition and Scott & Fyfe have received a great amount of interest from people in relation to our new pipe relining and repair products including the newly launched Alphashield.

 

This was a great and unique experience and is the first time S&F has ever exhibited on a roadshow. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who visited the stand over the 3 weeks and for their interest in our products.

We are pleased to announce our participation at the Vision London exhibition and conference, 2nd - 3rd June at Olympia London, where we will specifically be promoting our Polymat Hi-Flow Max product for composite façade systems.

 

Vision London is specifically for architects, specifiers, end users and construction sector suppliers and the aim of the event is to bring these communities together to discuss, debate and showcase the latest innovations and developments for the built environment. Vision will focus on innovative building products, materials and technology, as well as new and inventive solutions that facilitate better building design.

 

Composite façade systems are gaining significant traction in the façade market due to their unique benefits such as increased design freedom, ability to create 3D multi-curved surfaces, increased life span, improved weather performance and compliance with building regulations such as fire performance and thermal  / acoustic insulation. This was exemplified recently through two high profile projects in the Netherlands that utilised such composite façade solutions – the Hilton Hotel at Schipol airport and the Stadskantoor Utrecht (SKU) office building.

 

We welcome anyone interested to visit us at Vision, where we will be exhibiting as part of the New Product Zone or alternatively, get in touch with us here.

As a company based in Scotland, Scott & Fyfe are used to facing colder weather but I don't think anything could have prepared me for -21°C, which was the temperature in Indianapolis last week when I attended WWETT (The Water, Wastewater Equipment, Treatment and Transport Show).

Formerly called the Pumper and Cleaner Show, around 13,000 people from 45 countries to attend this show. This year there was more than 520 companies exhibiting and with this being the first year I have attended, it was a good opportunity for me to gain insight into the US no dig market and to meet some new contacts.

Over the last year we have been working hard to develop a range of lining products for this market. These have included coated felt fabrics along with our new advanced glass liners, Alphashield and Naeliner. What was really encouraging was that the key players I spoke to showed as much enthusiasm in our products as we do.

 

For those of you I spoke to at the show, thank you very much for taking the time to meet with me and we look forward to developing relationships with you all in the future.
