Chomarat has signed an agreement with Velox covering the distribution of Chomarat carbon fibre reinforcements in France, Italy and the UK, as well as the distribution of its complete range of carbon and glass reinforcements in Turkey.
Chomarat reports that the composites market in Turkey is booming, particularly in the transportation sector, and with Velox’s foothold in the Turkish market Chomarat will build up its Rovicore line of glass fibre reinforced sandwich reinforcements for closed mould processes.
“The idea is to step up our glass activities and still offer our customers more flexibility over the entire range of our reinforcements,” explains Vincent Cholvy, who is in charge of the Turkish market at Chomarat.
By distributing Chomarat’s products, Velox will develop its offering in the transportation, sports and leisure and boating sectors.
“In Europe, the distribution of the Chomarat range of carbon multiaxial range with C-Weave and C-Ply, gives us a real competitive advantage and enables us to maintain our position as an innovation distributor," notes Serge Gradys, Manager of the Velox Composites Business. "The same is true for the carbon and glass ranges distributed in Turkey.”

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
At SAMPE 2018 in Long Beach, Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit its advanced nonwovens, including the Tecnofire fire protection range, nano-coated materials and coated materials and Optiveil lightweight veils which aid surface finish and composite fabrication.
As part of its mission to address composites end-use industries, JEC Group is investing in composites showcases at key automotive events worldwide.
