Techfab Changes Name and Expands C-Grid Product Line

TechFab has officially changed its name to Chomarat North America and has also added two new products to its C-Grid product line.

In December 2006, France-based Groupe Chomarat, purchased the remaining 50 percent share of TechFab, LLC, which was formerly owned by Hexcel Corporation

From January 3, 2008, the ongoing operations and business activities of TechFab, LLC and Rovicore, LLC will be consolidated into a single corporate commercial entity. Bruce Hinton, former President of TechFab, LLC will serve as the President of Chomarat North America.

The new C-Grid products, identified as C50 – 3.5 x 4.0 and C50 – 2.2 x 2.2 join the C C-Grid C50 series of carbon fibre grids. The products are designed with larger openings to make it easier to place large aggregate concrete mixes where a lower strength, more economical product is needed. These products are expected to be quickly adopted by the construction community for use as reinforcement for concrete where corrosion resistance and crack control are desired.

Both C-Grid products are made using Zoltek Panex carbon fibre supplied by Zoltek Company of St. Louis, Missouri.

TechFab has also formed a strategic alliance partnership with Denso North America Inc. to develop a proprietary system for strengthening deteriorated timber and concrete piles by combining the strength of TechFab’s C-Grid carbon fibre grids with Denso’s SeaShield pile jacketing systems.

The technical partnership will combine the advanced testing and development capabilities of both companies to create a revolutionary encapsulation system that not only protects timber and concrete piles from aggressive saltwater environments and marine borers, but also strengthens deteriorated piles with a durable, non-corrosive reinforcement.
