In response to the challenging demand of reducing vehicles weight, costs and cycle times, Chomarat presents its innovative carbon range C-PLY with a carbon roof panel for the Roding Roadster.

Thanks to Chomarat’s technologies combined with the latest technological advancements in an RTM process, and based on a PU system with short cycle times, composite parts are produced with a good surface quality directly out of the mold. “Indeed, Chomarat’s carbon reinforcements in automotive structures and external hang-on body panels requiring a class A finish, are efficient and competitive solutions. We have developed with our partners a solution saving time-consuming rework, which can amount up to 60% of the costs per component ”, says Francisco De Oliveira, Automotive Market Director at Chomarat.

Chomarat is also bringing to the forefront a ¼ scale version of the VX1-KittyHawk, the aircraft made from C-Ply. Thanks to its shape, the hybrid aircraft designed by VX AEROSPACE minimizes its environmental footprint.

The first flight of the sub-scale aircraft took place in the US on June 6, 2014.

For railway and construction applications, Chomarat has developed Rovicore FR (Fire Resistant) reinforcement that provides a solution for the manufacturing of fire-resistant composite parts and meets fire classification requirements. Especially adapted to closed mold processes, Rovicore FR is a glass fiber-based reinforcement, with a halogen free core.
