Chomarat Launches Oflex Design – A Strong, Low Weight Flexible Coated Fabric

The launch of this new reinforcement impregnated with a flexible thermoplastic will take place on 11 – 13 June at the Techtextil Trade Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on Stand B98.

According to Chomarat, Oflex Design is a coated composite reinforcement that offers new design possibilities and high performance for the baggage, luxury accessory and telephone industries, among others.

“Oflex Design is the result of synergy between textile expertise for composites and coating technology skills. Chomarat is one of the only market players with a command of both technologies, and this dual expertise is what makes it possible to obtain very strong fabrics with great design potential,” says Philippe Chomarat, Manager of Chomarat’s Plastics business line.

Chomarat say Oflex Design consists of a glass, aramid or carbon fabric or multiaxial impregnated with a flexible, translucent thermoplastic matrix. The concept enables a broad range of combinations between a weave (plain, twill, satin, multiaxial) and a material (glass, aramid, carbon or hybrid).

“Oflex Design makes it possible to offer our customers a unique, customised engineered textile, with a matchless weight/mechanical properties ratio compared to traditional concepts, thanks to the use of high-performance fibres,” says Philippe Chomarat.
