Coats launches hybrid fibre composite technology


Industrial thread manufacturer Coats is launching Synergex, a range of advanced composite fibres that can be processed into fabric and used to mould strong, but lightweight, parts for a range of industries, including automotive and aerospace.

Synergex is said to have high levels of hybrid fibre integrity and performance. It can be processed into fabric form using many technologies, including commingling and twisting.

The carbon and polyamide commingled yarn is said to deliver a balance between strength, weight, performance and recyclability. The composite fibres can be embroidered directly into complex shapes and the final composite parts can be metal pressed.
