Chomarat has obtained the certification EN 9100: 2009, "Quality Management standard for the aerospace industry."
This European Standard defines specific performance and customer satisfaction requirements for the aerospace industry to meet precise quality goals. Security concerns are high in aerospace; they are also synonymous with important business issues. “This certification EN 9100 is a real opportunity to strengthen CHOMARAT’s presence on this market and further develop our carbon range,” said Michel Cognet, Group CEO Chomarat.
Meeting the demands of aerospace builders and equipment manufacturers, Chomarat says its C-PLY Bi-Angle Thin Ply allows optimisation of all composite aerospace parts. ˝In aeronautics, thin plies (50-75 g/m²) in C-PLY Bi-Angle are a key element in its performance for parts such as aerospace fuselage components,” explains Cognet. Other parts, like beams, can also benefit from this multiaxial assembly at shallow 20° or 30° angles, which allows weight savings – up to 30% compared to a standard carbon construction. In the aviation sector, this material is being tested in parts like wings and wing components. A helicopter part has already been produced by VX Aerospace (USA) using Chomarat C-PLY Bi-Angle. The research team is currently working on the project of a demonstrator for a lightweight sport aircraft incorporating all these innovations.
