SGL Carbon will be presenting smart solutions and materials made of fibre composites for mobility and industrial applications markets at the China Composites Expo in Shanghai from 3-5 September.

Under the motto The Weight and Performance Optimisers, the company will present its diverse product portfolio along the entire value chain from carbon fibres and textile semi-finished products to finished components made of carbon and glass fibre-reinforced plastics.

Specifically, SGL Carbon will showcase a leaf spring made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, which is used, for example in the rear axles of various models of the vehicle manufacturer Volvo. The innovative axle concept with glass fibre-based leaf springs is one of SGL Carbon’s biggest serial projects in lightweight construction and underscores the enormous potential of fibre composite construction.

A further exhibit will be a carrier for the rear spoiler of a sports car manufacturer. SGL Carbon has many years of experience and expertise in this important field of visible carbon components.

Furthermore, the company will be presenting its diverse product portfolio of fibre composite materials at China Composites. These range from Sigrafil carbon fibres and textile semi-finished products to Refrasil silica-based materials, which have been specially developed for high-temperature applications in the aerospace industry.

“Fibre-reinforced composites are used in numerous growth industries,” explained Dennis Baumann, Head of Market Segment Industrial Applications and Marketing of the Business Unit Composites-Fibres & Materials at SGL Carbon.

“In addition to the automotive and aerospace industries, industrial applications in mechanical engineering, in marine and infrastructure as well as in sports and leisure sectors are driving this development. Especially in China, the demand for composite materials has increased continuously in recent years – that’s why the China Composites Expo is very important for us.”
