FORMAX (Leicester, U.K.), a global manufacturer of carbon fiber and speciality reinforcements, announced on May 16 that its entire range of carbon fiber multiaxial fabrics has been awarded the DNV materials qualification.
DNV, says FORMAX, is one of the world’s leading certification bodies and offers the most sophisticated materials technology and testing services available. With extensive experience in laboratory testing, theoretical knowledge of materials, failure modes and mechanisms, a DNV accreditation provides customers with a high level of confidence that approved materials will deliver outstanding strength and exceptional performance.
The qualification will be of particular interest to FORMAX’s global marine customers involved in the production of larger vessels where consistently reliable materials are pivotal to any project’s success.
FORMAX manufactures multiaxial carbon fiber fabrics for use predominantly in the marine, automotive, aerospace and industrial markets.
