SGL Group has started production of stretch-broken carbon fibre yarn at its facility in Muir of Ord, Scotland.
An official ceremony inaugurating the new production took place on November 7, 2013 with site management, local politicians and media representatives in attendance.
Marketed under the brand name SIGRAFIL® C SBY, the company says that the product is a high-performance, very fine stretch-broken carbon fibre yarn.
Dr. Andreas Wöginger, Product and Technology Management SGL Group: “We are expanding our existing value chain by developing new textile procedures and refining our SIGRAFIL C carbon fibre into a fine yarn. We are now positioned to offer our customers new and innovative material concepts that meet the growing market requirements.”
