Specifically, SGL Carbon will showcase at booth A221 in hall 1 among others a leaf spring made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic, which is used, for example in the rear axles of various models of the vehicle manufacturer Volvo. The innovative axle concept with glass fibre-based leaf springs is one of SGL Carbon’s biggest serial projects in lightweight construction and underscores the enormous potential of fibre composite construction.
A further exhibit will be a carrier for the rear spoiler of a sports car manufacturer. SGL Carbon has many years of experience and expertise in this important field of visible carbon components.
Furthermore, the company will be presenting its diverse product portfolio of fibre composite materials at China Composites. These range from SIGRAFIL carbon fibres and textile semi-finished products to REFRASIL silica-based materials, which have been specially developed for high-temperature applications in the aerospace industry.
“Fibre-reinforced composites are used in numerous growth industries. In addition to the automotive and aerospace industries, industrial applications in mechanical engineering, in marine and infrastructure as well as in sports and leisure sectors are driving this development. Especially in China, the demand for composite materials has increased continuously in recent years – that’s why the China Composites Expo is very important for us,” explains Dennis Baumann, Head of Market Segment Industrial Applications and Marketing of the Business Unit Composites-Fibres & Materials at SGL Carbon.
For SGL Carbon, China Composites Expo is one of the most important trade fairs on the Asian market. It serves as a platform for the presentation of technical innovations, trends, product solutions and materials as well as a forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions and information.
You will find SGL Carbon at the World Expo & Convention Centre in Shanghai, Hall 1 booth A221.
