Chomarat (Le Cheylard, France, and Anderson, S.C.) reports that it is extending its line of carbon reinforcements with C-WEAVE SP, a new line of spread-tow carbon fabrics for composite parts with high aesthetic performance requirements, especially in the high-end automotive, sports and leisure, luggage and telephone markets. C-WEAVE SP spread carbon fabric is made with 200 g/m2 3K fibers and is available in plain or twill weave. The fabric reportedly achieves a 99 percent spreading rate (compared to what Chomarat says is the usual average of 85 to 92 percent). At this rate, Chomarat says it is possible to manufacture carbon composite parts with a surface layer that is 20 percent lighter (compared to 245 g/m2 3K fibers), with good surface quality and optimized aesthetics, performance and cost. Chomarat worked on the choice of raw materials, the production process and quality control, all of which are crucial selection criteria for this type of technically demanding product.
