Gen 2 Carbon to launch new nonwoven mat at JEC World

Gen 2 Carbon, formerly ELG Carbon Fibre, will be exhibiting at JEC World 2022, 3-5 May in Paris.

This is the carbon fibre recycler’s first appearance at the composites show following a management buyout in May 2021. The company will be maximising their debut through the introduction of a supremely lightweight 60gsm, recycled carbon fibre nonwoven fabric.

Part of the G-TEX product range, the new 60gsm mats have been developed in response to customer requests for materials that combine the flexibility of carded textiles with a lower fibre area weight, usually associated with wet-laid products. The company states this offering will strongly appeal to customers in several market segments, owing to the products’ excellent drapeability, superior surface finish and consistent, low fibre areal weight.

G-TEX 60gsm mats can be processed with any resin system, used as either dry fabrics in liquid moulding processes or as prepregs for autoclave and press moulding.

“Customers have been asking for lower fibre aerial weight products to meet specific needs for some time,” stated Frazer Barnes, CTO at Gen 2 Carbon. “Our technical team has responded through the development of this next generation carbon fibre technology, providing an effective solution to customers in the automotive, aerospace, electronics and wind energy sectors.”

A selection of striking automotive, aerospace and marine components manufactured with Gen 2 Carbon’s nonwoven technologies will also be displayed at JEC World in hall 6, stand F5.
