Chomarat to present carbon C-PLY backpack frame at CAMX 2016

Chomarat will present the carbon frame for the newly launched Kuiu Ultra backpack. © Chomarat Chomarat, a leading producer of engineering textiles and composite reinforcements, will present its latest innovations at the CAMX 2016 exhibition that is taking place from 26-29 September at the Anaheim Convention Center, California.

The company will showcase its carbon C-PLY backpack frame created in partnership with Rocket Composites. The exhibit will also feature application demos using Chomarat reinforcements for the aerospace, sports and leisure, and marine sectors in partnership with Composites One.

100% carbon backpack frame

Chomarat will present the carbon frame for the newly launched Kuiu Ultra backpack. The frame is the fruit of the company’s new collaboration with Rocket Composites, which chose C-PLY as the carbon reinforcement to produce an ultra-strong and ultra-light frame for Kuiu, the mountain hunting clothing and gear specialist.

According to the manufacturer, C-PLY met all the criteria (thin plies, no crimp and shallow angles) to fulfil the requirements for rapid product development in terms of concept, design, tooling, prototyping and production.

“Our partnership with Chomarat enabled us to redesign the backpack frame utilizing a custom triaxial C-PLY fabric that makes the new frame 25% stronger with much better torsional stability compared to previous models made from traditional woven carbon fabrics,” explained Paul Hewitt, owner and founder of Rocket Composites.

Live demonstrations

Composites One and Chomarat will present live demonstrations at the show, featuring Chomarat’s C-Ply, G-Flow, Rovicore, and C-Weave reinforcements. The idea is to show composite manufacturers how to produce parts using the latest product and process innovations. Composites One is a leader in composite materials distribution, and Chomarat’s partner in the USA since 1999.

“We are proud of our long partnership with Composites One to promote closed-mould processes. The reinforcements used are among the most innovative products in the market. The demos will illustrate that, combined with the cutting-edge technology, we offer part manufacturers innovative solutions for composites market sectors including aerospace, marine or sports equipment,” said John Leatham, Sales Director, Chomarat North America.
