Sustainability Focus: PFA Systems
SHD have developed a range of Poly Furfuryl Alcohol (PFA) systems. This up to 98% bio-based material yields technical benefits with regards to its class leading flammability and high temperature performance, as well as significantly improved LCA credentials over the incumbent petrochemical equivalent.
Feedstock material is a by-product of sugarcane production
No solvents or hazardous chemicals used in the production
Extensive mechanical and LCA information gathered
SHD PFA glass and carbon prepregs certified to have passed numerous industry FST tests and standards
