Reinforcements dedicated to industrial applications Used for their overall performance as well as for their corrosion resistance, durability and lightweight properties, composites are particularly popular in industrial applications. The wide variety in the range of reinforcements designed by Chomarat – fabrics, braids, ribbons; complex, multiaxial reinforcements – can meet the full range of needs in Read More
Chomarat, a historical actor in the sporting equipment market The company was one of the very first players to participate in the development of composites for skis. Exceptional know-how in ribbon weaving is one of its many assets. The flexibility of this technology is particularly well suited to the ski manufacturing process. It allows production Read More
With increasing threats and terrorism to cope with, ensuring the protection of persons inside military and police vehicles has become a priority. In partnership with its customers and suppliers, Chomarat has developed reinforcements based on high performance glass or aramid fibers. Intended to reduce the weight of armor, these materials improve shatter protection, and thus Read More
Composites in industrial vehicles (buses, trucks, farm equipment) Just like light vehicles, industrial vehicles must meet CO2 emissions regulations. Given this new legislation, combined with a desire to lower energy costs, weight reduction has become a major axis of development for manufacturers. In this context, composites offer new alternatives to metals, by providing strength and Read More
Wind power, a growing world market The wind power industry continues its growth, with 55 GW installed during the year 2016. This trend can be explained by two factors, environmental considerations and economics. The COP21 agreements have created new growth opportunities for clean energy solutions such as wind power. China, India and the United States, Read More
The automotive industry must innovate and take a significant strategic turn, driven by ever more ambitious goals of regulatory CO2 reduction. By allowing lighter-weight structures, glass and carbon continuous fiber composites are an important part of this transformation. Reinforcements adapted to structural and appearance requirements These composite solutions must demonstrate their economic relevance in the Read More
L’utilisation des matériaux composites est indispensable dans la construction nautique. Ils apportent allégement des structures, résistance à l’osmose ainsi que résistance mécanique et rigidité.
Depuis quelques années, les matériaux composites montent en puissance dans les structures d’avions. Ils représentent plus de 50% de la masse (hors moteur) des appareils longs courriers les plus récents. Les importants gains de masse, et donc de consommation d’énergie, qu’ils génèrent séduisent des compagnies aériennes soucieuses de profiter du moindre poste d’économies possibles et de diminuer les émissions de CO2.
D’après une étude menée par Airbus, 33000 nouveaux avions devraient être commandés entre 2016 et 2035*
