JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
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.More information: www.chomarat.com
