C-Weave SP: a new spread fibre reinforcement for high-end Class A parts.
Chomarat is extending its line of carbon reinforcements with C-Weave SP, a new line of spread carbon fabrics for composite parts with high aesthetic performance requirements, especially for the high-end automotive, sports & leisure, luggage and telephone markets.
C-Weave SP spread carbon fabric is made with 200 g/m² 3K fibres and is available in plain or twill weave. C-Weave SP achieves a 99% spreading rate (compared to the usual average 85-92% rate). At this rate, it is possible to obtain carbon composite parts that are 20% lighter (compared to 245 g/m² 3K fibres), with impeccable surface quality and optimized aesthetics, performance and cost. Chomarat worked on the choice of raw materials, production process and quality control, all of which are crucial selection criteria for this type of technically demanding product. Since Chomarat has facilities in China, the new line will also be locally available in the Asian region.
