Textile specialist Sigmatex plans to showcase its custom weave carbon fabric at the Advanced Engineering Show, taking place in Birmingham, UK and the end of October.

According to the company, sigmaDesign carbon fabric is suitable for the automotive, sports and consumer goods markets.

‘When it comes to visual CFRP [carbon fiber reinforced plastic], many customers want more than the standard weave designs,’ said Paul McMullan, global commercial manager at Sigmatex. ‘We are able to work with those customers to express their creativity and unleash their imagination, incorporating carbon fabrics that combine form and function, fashioning products that have an identity synonymous to their brand.’

Sigmatex says that it also plans to present a range of its carbon conversion technologies in the composites engineering sector of the show.
