Chomarat is launching TPreg, its new range of continuous reinforcements for the production of thermoplastic composites at JEC Europe, Porte de Versailles, Paris, France, next week.
Chomarat explains that thermoplastic composites have many advantages: speed of conversion processes, little emission of volatile matter, thermoformability and recyclability. It says their development has been held up by expensive conversion processes. Chomarat is launching its range of innovative TPreg continuous reinforcements opening up new prospects for manufacturers while offering them the possibility of using equipment and processes already in place.
“Chomarat has developed a thermoplastic reinforcement suited to problems in the automobile market: mechanical performance and flexibility in use. TPreg is a conformable reinforcement that preserves perfect orientation of the fibres. It can be designed with a diversity of materials (carbon fibre, glass fibre, etc.) and in different widths. With various impregnation levels in development, the range is suited to various production processes and opens up new technico-economic prospects for the market” indicates Philippe Sanial, R&D Manager at Chomarat.
Chomarat is participating in the automobile forum to present its innovating solutions for thermosetting and thermoplastic composites on Wednesday 13 March from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm.
Chomarat can be found at booth Q25.
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
The Brazilian composite sector expects to close 2018 with a turnover of US$ 685 million, a high of 3.8% compared to the previous year.
