Chomarat is continuing to develop its advanced composites and carbon activities with the opening of an additional plant in South Carolina, US.
The company says it has established a new 58,500-ft² plant in South Carolina, US. The plant will be dedicated to the development of advanced composite activities. It will open during the first quarter 2014 and start producing its first C-PLYTM spread multiaxial reinforcements mid-year.
The site will initially be equipped with the new LIBA MAX5 100-inch machine (variable width) for producing spread-tow carbon multiaxials. It will be the second liba max 5 machine operated by the Group, following the one installed in France. The state-of-the-art machine will help boost Chomarat’s development in the carbon markets and complement the spread/non-spread carbon fabric offerings already available in France and Asia.
These new capabilities will enable Chomarat to propose its innovative advanced composite solutions in the North American industrial, automotive and aerospace markets.
