Saertex expands as Bombardier C takes off

Saertex carbon fibre multiaxial fabrics are employed in the wings of the new Bombardier C Series commercial airliner, the first of which was delivered to operator Swiss International Air Lines in July this year.

Its delivery coincided with the start of production at the expanded plant of Saertex in Lanheses, Portugal, which has doubled the company’s capacity for multiaxial non-crimp fabrics made of glass, carbon and aramid fibre, to meet current high demand for these materials.

In addition, Saertex has also broken ground on an expansion of the plant at its headquarters in Saerbeck, Germany, which will become operational in 2017.

By focusing on the 100-150-seat market segment, Bombardier has designed the C Series aircraft to deliver unparalleled economic advantage to operators and to open up new opportunities for single-aisle aircraft operations.

The Saetrex fabrics are employed in its wings to help provide the highest possible load-bearing capacity at the lowest possible weight.
