JEC World 2018 preview: Chomarat
Chomarat (Hall 5A, Stand J42) will present its latest innovations at the 2018 JEC World trade show on 6-8 March at Paris Nord Villepinte.
Chomarat, the composite reinforcement specialist group, is launching its multiaxial glass NCF for thermoplastic composites. The unique patented stitching yarn used can withstand processing temperatures to 400°C, making it an innovative industrial solution for thermoplastic composites and an alternative to the woven reinforcements used especially in the automotive sector. Chomarat is also exhibiting a unidirectional carbon NCF reinforcement that is adapted to the productivity and performance requirements in the wind energy sector.
A look at the process by which precursor becomes carbon fiber through a careful (and mostly proprietary) manipulation of temperature and tension.
The old art behind this industry’s first fiber reinforcement is explained,with insights into new fiber science and future developments.
The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
