On 2-3 November, Chomarat will present its latest glass and carbon innovations at the Advanced Engineering Show in Birmingham, UK.
Chomarat explains that it will showcase recent works on C-PLY, the Group’s high-performance multiaxial reinforcement. According to Chomarat, C-PLY addresses the issues of weight and cost reduction in the composite industry, with a focus on solutions developed to achieve a Class A surface finish for automotive composite parts that are made using RTM.
Chomarat says it will also present its latest developments on G-FLOW, the only 100% glass reinforcement that combines structural and flow functions for infusion. “G-FLOW’s highly interesting flow function is made possible by its unusual textile structure. G-FLOW is 100 times more permeable than a standard reinforcement, leading to time savings during processing, and reducing cost by as much as 13% as a function of the type of infusion process used,” explains Chomarat UK Sales Manager, Robert Wilder.

Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
