Carbon fibre for composite material applications

Sigmatex Received DNV Type Approval

Runcorn, UK & California, US: Sigmatex is delighted to announce that both of its facilities in the UK and US has received Type Approval Certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) for a numbers of its Multiaxial and Unidirectional Carbon Fibre Fabric products.

DNV is one of the world’s leading certification bodies and has vast knowledge and credibility within the Marine related type approval process.

Mr. Mark Bishop, Design Principal at MBDesign said “Testing is always a time consuming and expensive process for both our clients and suppliers but with Sigmatex having taken the lead in obtaining DNV Type Approval it allows us to know ahead of time that their carbon fabrics are of a quality that will meet the challenges of DNV’s approval process.”

During 2009, DNV has conducted extensive assessments of Sigmatex designs. This process included testing Sigmatex products related to Marine applications and an audit of the Sigmatex Management System. Sigmatex successfully proved compliance which enabled DNV to issue the Certification.

This DNV approval demonstrates further support from Sigmatex to the Marine Market and the demanding requirements of its customers and applications.
