Chomarat’s reported goal is to develop a new generation of laid scrim reinforcements for construction materials.

Chomarat reports that it has invested in a new pilot production line to develop its next generation of reinforcements. The new line will become operational in early 2019 at the company’s construction plant in Anderson, South Carolina, USA.

Chomarat’s reported goal is to develop a new generation of laid scrim reinforcements for construction materials.

‘We are working on all the parameters (technological, chemical formulations, textile fibers) to optimize the performance of Chomarat scrims, such as protecting glass against alkali in cement or increasing impact resistance and water repellency,’ said Raphaël Pleynet, director of composites and construction.

The scrims designed and developed by Chomarat reportedly have dimensional stability, laminating quality with other materials (film or veils), improved mechanical performance, and good protection against the alkalinity of cement.
