Chomarat (Le Cheylard, France) is exhibiting its latest woven and multiaxial carbon fiber reinforcements at JEC World 2019.

According to the company, its C-WEAVE carbon fiber fabrics serve as a benchmark for surface-finish quality and processability for prepregs. The reinforcement, Chomarat says, contributes to productivity and reliability during the prepregging process. Advantages of multiaxial reinforcements include oriented axes, absence of resin-rich areas allowing a high fiber content and improved mechanical tensile and/or bending performance due to non-crimp fibers.

Chomarat’s C-PLY range has been developed to increase prepreg performance and appearance with minimum marking on parts and optimized surface quality through fiber spreading and the use of suitable stitches. C-PLY can also integrate aesthetic functions by using the assembly seam as a graphic design, Chomarat says. These new advantages, aimed at combining quality with productivity, are targeted for applications in the automotive, sports-equipment and consumer electronics markets.
