Chomarat Textiles Industries (Le Cheylard, France) highlighted at JEC Europe 2012 its new and innovative C-PLY Bi-Angle nonwoven carbon multiaxial fabric, originally launched in 2011 by Chomarat in partnership with a research group headed by Dr. Stephen Tsai of Stanford University. C-PLY combines one thin fiber layer at 0° with a second at a shallow angle of +20°, which introduces anisotropy and establishes a bend-twist coupling that reportedly can revolutionize composite laminate design. The company revealed that C-PLY Bi-Angle is being tested for aerospace applications, including wings, wing components and engine blades.
