Coats (Stockley Park, Uxbridge, UK), a manufacturer of industrial thread and consumer textile crafts, will launch Coats Synergex, a range of advanced composite fibers that can be processed into fabric form using many technologies, including commingling and twisting. The thermoplastic and reinforcement fibers can be commingled to meet strength, weight, performance and recyclability requirements. The fibers can be embroidered directly into complex shapes that can be metal-pressed to mold parts. Earlier this year Coats announced a partnership with Elemental Motor Co. The ultra lightweight wheel arches of Elemental’s new Rp1 sports car have been developed using Coats Synergex and visitors to the Coats stand at CAMX will be able to see, touch and pick up a wheel arch. Other products in the Coats booth include commingled yarns as well as twisted yarns.
