Chomarat is introducing the FX range of adhesive reinforcements.
“FX is an adhesive applied to our fabrics, multiaxials and core materials,” explains Raphaël Pleynet, Head of Composites and Construction Business at Chomarat. “It is a new service that we provide for our customers who are looking for enhanced productivity and a healthier work environment.”
The FX adhesive solution is designed to makes it easier to position reinforcements in moulds. Available on most of Chomarat’s glass reinforcements, it is an alternative to adhesive sprays. FX is said to offer highly uniform placement, minimising the risk of delamination.
“The resin cure is not affected by the addition of the adhesive and the mechanical performance is optimal,” states Philippe Sanial, Head of R&T at Chomarat. “FX also facilitates the lay-up of parts, saving time and reducing the production costs.”
According to Chomarat, FX can facilitate the closed mould production of large or complex-geometry parts and is suitable for a number of markets, including marine and transportation. FX emits no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), contributing to better working conditions.
The FX option is available on Chomarat’s G-WEAVE, G-PLY, ROVICORE, ROVIFLOW and ROVIMAT products. The adhesive can be placed on a single side, or both.
