Flexible coated fabric combines strength and low weight

Chomarat Textiles Industries : 28 May, 2013  (New Product)
The engineered textile specialist Chomarat Group is expanding its range of coated fabrics with a new reinforcement impregnated with a flexible thermoplastic, which will be launched at the Techtextil trade fair on 11-13 June 2013.

Oflex Design is a coated composite reinforcement that offers new design possibilities and high performance for the baggage, luxury accessory and telephone industries, among others.

Oflex Design consists of a glass, aramid or carbon fabric or multiaxial, impregnated with a flexible, translucent thermoplastic matrix. The concept enables a broad range of combinations between a weave (plain, twill, satin, multiaxial) and a material (glass, aramid, carbon or hybrid).

"Thanks to the use of high-performance fibres, Oflex Design makes possible a customised engineered textile, with a matchless weight/mechanical properties ratio compared to traditional concepts," says Philippe Sanial, manager of Chomarat’s Plastics business line. "Oflex Design is the result of synergy between textile expertise for composites and coating technology skills. Chomarat has a command of both technologies, and this dual expertise is what makes it possible to obtain very strong fabrics with great design potential.”

At the trade fair, Chomarat’s stand will also feature TPreg R, an alkaline-resistant, lightweight thermoplastic reinforcement for the building industry. TPreg R can be used effectively to replace the wood or metal used in building formwork or scaffolding panels.
