Covestro CFRTP Composites in Haier’s Designer-Look Air Conditioners

April 02 2018

Covestro CFRTP composites provide the market with a completely new look – as can be seen by looking at air conditioners of the Chinese appliance manufacturer Haier. Haier has launched a state-of-the-art air conditioner under its Casarte brand, which utilizes novel continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTPs) from Covestro. They are lightweight, yet very strong and offer very much design freedom.

Unlike the now aged racing material, designers are already interested in the new look of Covestro's new composites. The first new product in the Casarte product range, which is allowed to be encased in the new Covestro material, is an air-conditioning system: Two slender columns with a luxurious metal effect that does not require any metal at all thanks to CFRTP and an otherwise restrained, transparent paint finish: In their brilliant polycarbonate matrix, the endless carbon fibers of the new lightweight construction material, which lie parallel to each other, are reminiscent of brushed aluminum, even without the need for the time-consuming finishing process.
