Chomarat, one of the world’s leading producers of engineered textiles and composite reinforcements, is expanding its Coatings & Films business. The Company is investing in a new varnishing and finishing line for automotive coated materials, an addition that reinforces the industrial equipment already installed at the Chomarat France site.
“This €2.5 million investment is right in line with Chomarat’s global development strategy. The new line will start producing as early as the beginning of 2017, enabling us to consolidate and increase our penetration of the automotive market. In point of fact, varnishing is a key coating step in parts production that optimizes surface quality,” said Philippe Chomarat, the head of Chomarat Coatings & Films business.
Combined to the Chomarat OSKINTM range, the new technology offers several advantages such as meeting future environmental requirements, offering new design possibilities and reinforcing Chomarat’s experience in interior automotive trim.
