Chomarat will present its latest innovations at CAMX 2016, including a carbon C-PLYT backpack frame created in partnership with Rocket Composites, and application demos using Chomarat reinforcements for the aerospace, sports & leisure and marine sectors in partnership with Composites One.
Chomarat says it will present the carbon frame for the Kuiu Ultra backpack which is the fruit of its new collaboration with Rocket Composites, which chose C-PLY as the carbon reinforcement to produce an ultra-strong and ultra-light frame for Kuiu, the mountain hunting clothing and gear specialist.
According to Rocket Composites, C-PLY met all the criteria (thin plies, no crimp and shallow angles) to fulfill the requirements for rapid product development in terms of concept, design, tooling, prototyping and production. “Our partnership with Chomarat enabled us to redesign the backpack frame utilising a custom triaxial C-PLY fabric that makes the new frame 25% stronger with much better torsional stability compared to previous models made from traditional woven carbon fabrics,” explained Paul Hewitt, Owner and Founder of Rocket Composites. According to Mr Hewitt, C-PLY makes a flatter and more stable part, and also “handles and cuts better than woven fabric and generates less waste.”
Composites One has been Chomarat’s partner in the US since 1999 and will present live demonstrations featuring Chomarat’s C-Ply, G-Flow, Rovicore, and C-Weave reinforcements. The idea is to show composite manufacturers how to produce parts using the latest product and process innovations. “We are proud of our long partnership with Composites One to promote closed-mould processes. The reinforcements used are among the most innovative products in the market. The demos will illustrate that, combined with the cutting-edge technology, we offer part manufacturers innovative solutions for composites market sectors including aerospace, marine or sports equipment,” said John Leatham, Sales Director, Chomarat North America.
