Chomarat works to aid auto CO2 reduction

November 14th, 2016 / By: / Industry News

In an effort to assist the automotive industry to fulfill regulatory CO2 reduction objectives, French textiles developer Chomarat is developing non-crimp fabrics based on very heavy tow fibers. Continuous-glass and carbon-fiber composites offer a significant advantage in attaining goals by reducing the weight of structures.

Chomarat is working on formatting very heavy tow low-cost carbon fiber into C-PLY™ and proposing design optimization using low-cost carbon fiber input from Tennessee’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
