The company will use new manufacturing technology to develop next-generation laid scrim reinforcements for construction materials.

CHOMARAT (Le Cheylard, France) announced on Nov. 5 that it has invested in a new pilot production line to develop  a new generation of laid scrim reinforcements for construction materials. Conceived for the development of next generation cement board and roof-waterproofing reinforcements, the machine is versatile for developing materials for new markets.

“We are working on all the parameters – technological, chemical formulations, textile fibers – to optimize the performance of CHOMARAT scrims, such as protecting glass against alkali in cement or increasing impact resistance and water repellency,” explains Raphaël Pleynet, director of Composites & Construction Europe at CHOMARAT.

The new line is scheduled to begin operation in early 2019 at CHOMARAT’s construction plant in Anderson, SC, US.


  • Composite vs. corrosion: Battling for marketshare

    Market trends and tighter budgets are helping to expand the use of composites to repair and replace corrosion-damaged infrastructure — aboveground and underground.

  • Tooling

    Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.
