ELG debuts in Japan

ELG Carbon Fibre will introduce its Carbiso range of recycled carbon fibre nonwoven products for high volume, lightweighting solutions in automotive applications to the Japanese market for the first time at the Automotive World Show in Tokyo from January 17-19. 

The Coseley, UK-headquartered company’s Carbiso range of recycled carbon fibre products produce lighter, stiffer parts at high volume manufacturing rates whilst achieving significant cost savings.

Milled and precision chopped fibres are highly suitable as reinforcements for injection moulding processes and the production of complex parts in fast cycle times.

Nonwoven mats – either 100% recycled carbon fibre or hybrid blends with thermoplastic fibres – can be compression moulded or processed as SMC or prepreg materials for parts such as chassis panels, floors, roof panels and spare wheel wells.

ELG is currently working with a number of European OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers and supplies at industrial volumes. The Japanese market therefore holds much potential.

 “There is a huge requirement for economical, compact, lightweight passenger cars, including hybrid vehicles, in Japan,” says MD Frazer Barnes. “ELG can supply high volumes of carbon fibre products and deliver the latest high rate processing technologies to satisfy this demand in the most cost efficient method possible”.

Technical experts from both ELG Carbon Fibre Europe and ELG Carbon Fibre Japan will be available to meet with customers and press throughout the show. To arrange an appointment please contact [email protected].
