Rear spoilers made of carbon fiber textiles

From September 3 to 5, SGL Carbon will be presenting smart solutions and materials made of fiber composites for mobility and industrial applications markets at the China Composites Expo in Shanghai. Under the motto “The Weight and Performance Optimizers”, the company will present its diverse product portfolio along the entire value chain from carbon fibers and textile semi-finished products to finished components made of carbon and glass fiber-reinforced Plastics. 

Specifically, SGL Carbon will showcase at booth A221 in hall 1 among others a leaf spring made of fiberglass-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 fiber-based leaf springs is one of SGL Carbon’s biggest serial projects in lightweight construction and underscores the enormous potential of fiber 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 fiber composite materials at China Composites. These range from SIGRAFIL® carbon fibers and textile semi-finished products to REFRASIL® silica-based materials, which have been specially developed for high-temperature applications in the aerospace industry. Here, too, SGL Carbon offers its customers tailormade solutions from concept development to production-ready applications. 

“Fiber-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-Fibers & 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. We look forward to your visit.
