Saertex records high demand for carbon materials at JEC World 2017

Saertex, a market leader in the manufacture of multiaxial fabrics and core materials for the production of fibre-reinforced composites, has drawn positive results from the company's attendance at JEC World, which took place in Paris last month.

The exhibited lightweight carbon construction solutions, in particular, were received with keen interest by visitors from all over the world, the company reports. Saertex focused for the first time on its competence in carbon-fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP). The new campaign, Think Carbon – Make It with Saertex, was met with a decidedly positive response on the part of the numerous visitors to the booth, according to the manufacturer.

“This year’s JEC World was a complete success for Saertex: more visitors, more inquiries, and above all, more contacts in new fields of application for our lightweight construction materials – and, in particular, our carbon non-crimp fabric, of course. We are very optimistic about the future,” said Daniel Stumpp, Head of Global Marketing at the Saertex Group.

Innovative products

This year Saertex presented innovative products and their applications, such as the Candela hydrofoil speed boat, the new Lamborghini Huracán, and rotor blades made with CFRP elements for the wind power sector.

Large numbers of visitors came to the Saertex booth and attended the live presentations at the Speakers' Corner to obtain information on new innovations and receive advice from the material engineers at the Saerbeck-based market leader.

JEC Award 2017

Saertex also received the JEC Innovation Award together with Norwegian shipbuilder Brødrene Aa and two other partner companies. The family-owned company from the Münsterland region of Germany was honoured for its contribution to the Vision of the Fjords tourist ferry, which was made almost completely from Saertex carbon.

"We are very proud and delighted to receive this award. For our company, it is both a confirmation and an incentive to pioneer innovative development together with our customers and to preserve the re-sources of our world. In this context, carbon is the material of the future. It will prevail in all applications in the transport sector," commented Christoph Geyer, member of the Executive Board and Chief Sales Officer of Saertex.
