Chomarat is launching C-WEAVE Spread, a new high-end product line. It combines high-tech features, strength and innovative design.
C-Weave SPwill extend Chomarat’s line of carbon reinforcements, to a new line of spread carbon fabrics for composite parts with high aesthetic requirements, especially for the high-end automotive, sports-and-leisure, luggage and telephone markets.
C-Weave SP spread carbon fabric is made with 200g/m² 3K fibres and is available in plain or twill weave. Chomarat says that the new C-Weave SP achieves a 99% spreading rate. At this rate, it is possible to obtain carbon composite parts that are 20% lighter (compared to 245g/m² 3K fibres), with impeccable surface quality and optimized aesthetics, performance and cost.
Chomarat worked on the choice of raw materials, production process and quality control, all of which are crucial selection criteria for this type of technically demanding product. Since Chomarat has facilities in China, the new line will also be available in Asia.
