Formax will showcase its multiaxial materials at the Composites Engineering Show.

Formax, a UK manufacturer of engineered composite reinforcements, will be showcasing a selection of its multiaxial fabrics for the automotive, aerospace, marine, sports and industrial markets at the Composites Engineering Show in Birmingham, UK, from 4–5 November.

Samples on display will include +/-45 biaxial fabrics made from intermediate modulus carbon fiber for motorsports and sporting goods applications, and carbon fiber multiaxials specifically designed for the resin infusion process.

The company will also be highlighting the capabilities of its recently opened Innovation Centre, where current areas of focus include fabric permeability testing, process simulation, automation of composites manufacture, and recycling.

At the exhibition Formax will also display:

  • aFORM, a range of +/-45 fabrics in weights of 150-300 g/m2 and optimised for a Class A surface finish
  • lightweight unidirectionals (UDs)
  • laminated veils for a Class A finish
  • lightweight 0/90 fabrics
  • balanced biaxials in weights from 200 g/m2
  • heavyweight glass multiaxials for infusion processes
  • +/-22 biaxials.
