FORMAX (Leicester, U.K.), a manufacturer of carbon fiber and specialty composite reinforcements, is announcing plans at JEC Europe to open an automotive production facility alongside the company’s U.K. headquarters. The new site will be dedicated to producing specialist carbon fiber multiaxial fabrics designed specifically for meeting the requirements of high-volume automotive applications. This latest investment and subsequent site expansion follows FORMAX’s recent launch of a number of new automotive textiles. These include: aFORM, a specialized ±45° material ranging in weight from 150 to 300 gsm for Class A surface finishes; reFORM, a recycled materials range produced from carbon fiber waste and a specialized drape simulation software that allows customers to optimize their fabrics performance by identifying creasing and permeability issues.
