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.
At JEC Americas 2016 in Atlanta, the company presented a ski produced with C-Ply, their multiaxial carbon reinforcement now produced in the Group’s US facility in South Carolina.
Equivalent properties for a 26% lighter Dynastar skiLaunched in January 2016, the “Mythic 87” line of Dynastar’s skis uses Chomarat’S C-Ply multiaxial carbon reinforcements. These innovative backcountry skis were first developed for competitive skiing, but are now available for all skiers.The structure of C-Ply carbon reinforcement is optimized in terms of angles, ply weight and fiber alignment, so there is a perfect balance between strength and responsiveness, between high performance and weight. This makes for a lightweight yet powerful ski.“Thanks to the use of C-Ply, we lowered the weight of the skis by more than 25%, making it more comfortable for skiers and providing higher downhill performance.” explains Dynastar Product Manager, Franz Marsan.C-Ply produced by Chomarat at its advanced composites plant in USAOpened in 2014 in South Carolina, the new company's facility specializes in carbon reinforcements, offering the whole C-Ply range including shallow angles and 100” width capability. The facility also produces woven carbon fabrics (C-Weave) and uses advanced technologies to make high quality, cosmetically superior fabrics for demanding applications. Composite part producers in North America can, as Dynastar has, take advantage of Chomarat’s expertise and capture the unique benefits that C-Ply can deliver including weight savings and higher strength.More information: www.chomarat.com
