Lighter, lower costs, large series production: Chomarat offers innovative solutions with TPreg, its innovative continuous reinforcement range.
TPreg is a range of products that complements the current OrganoSheet line (assembly of a continuous reinforcement and a thermoplastic resin).
TPreg maintains Thermoplastic composites advantages: speed of conversion processes, little emission of volatile matter, thermoformability and recyclability TPreg is a conformable reinforcement that preserves perfect orientation of the fibres. It can be designed with a diversity of materials (carbon fibre, glass fibre, etc.) and in different widths. With various impregnation levels in development, the range is suited to various production processes and opens up new technico-economic prospects for the market” indicates P. SANIAL, R&D Manager at CHOMARAT.
This new range finds applications in numerous sectors such as automotive or sports and leisure. Chomarat’s innovations were once again recognized: Chomarat was one of the partners awarded at the JEC Innovation Awards- Paris 2013 in the thermoplastics category, alongside ARKEMA.
C-PLY Bi-Angle™Second-generation composites
Launched in 2011, the C-PLY™ project, under the leadership of Professor Tsai, has demonstrated that an optimised design of composites makes it possible to obtain significant savings in weight (up to 30%).
Currently the working group is entering a new phase and is demonstrating that the use of C-PLY™ in a manufacturing phase with automated laying processes makes it possible to obtain productivity gains never obtained before.
Chomarat innovates, Chomarat won an award at the first Boston JEC show for its C-PLY carbon reinforcements.
