ACCOLADE THERMO FLEX
FIBER - Is an A++ Grade Composite Material which is very easy
to paint, and which saves significant funds on prep work.
THERMO FLEX PLASTIC IS THE NEXT GENERATION OF BODY KITS.
AND IS SLIGHTLY MORE EXPENSIVE COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL BODY KITS.
HOWEVER TO THE DISCERNING CONSUMER THEY ARE WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT.
THERMO FLEX PLASTIC KITS ARE MADE IN JAPAN, AND THEY ADHERE TO STRICT
TFF Composites deliver more strength per unit of
weight than most metals. In fact, TFF composites are generally 1/5th the
weight of steel. The composite can also be shaped into one complex part.
The combination of these two benefits makes TFF composites a powerful material
TFF Composites display excellent resistance to the
corrosive effects of:
Freeze-thaw: because composites are
not attacked by galvanic corrosion and have low water absorption, they resist
the destructive expansion of freezing water.
Weathering and Ultra-Violet Light: TFF composite structures
designed for weather exposure are normally fabricated with a surface layer
containing a pigmented gel coat or have an ultraviolet (UV)
inhibitor included as an additive to the composite matrix. Both methods provide
protection to the underlying material by screening out UV rays and minimizing
water absorption along the fiber/resin interface.
Chemicals and Temperature: Composites do not rust or corrode and can be
formulated to provide long-term resistance to nearly every chemical and
temperature environment. Of particular benefit, is composites ability to
successfully withstand the normally destructive effects of de-icing salts and/or
saltwater spray of the ocean.
