FutureCarbon to Show Innovative Super-Composites With New Electrical and Thermal Characteristics at Swisstech 2010
(Nanowerk News) FutureCarbon is exhibiting in the Nano Village of this year's Swisstech staged from 16 through 19 November in Basle. The Bayreuth-based company is presenting super-composite materials with new electrical and thermal characteristics.
At Swisstech, the central exhibition of Europe's subcontractor industry, FutureCarbon is showing super-composites based on carbon nanomaterials for further industrial processing:
Carbo e-Therm is an electrically highly conductive coating system – suitable for temperatures as high as 500°C – for a variety of heating purposes. This high conductivity makes it ideal in applications working on non-hazardous low voltage (e.g. 12 V). Carbo e-Therm can be applied direct to very different surface geometries and materials, and is both very robust mechanically as well as extremely stable chemically. A further bonus is that Carbo e-Therm heated coatings produce absolutely homogeneous heat distribution avoiding hot spots.
In CarboImpreg FutureCarbon presents a new member from its family of heating products. Electrically conductive, CarboImpreg will soak into rough or absorptive surfaces of very different materials such as real leather or textiles. Surfaces impregnated in this way can be electrically heated by applying a non-hazardous low voltage of 12 or 24 V for example.
CarboShield is a highly effective means of shielding based on carbon nanomaterials, a very thin coating of which is able to suppress electromagnetic radiation. CarboShield was developed both to safeguard humans, animals and technical installations against exposure to high-frequency electromagnetic fields, and to maintain information security by creating bug-proof facilities for instance.
FutureCarbon specializes in the development and manufacture of carbon nanomaterials and their refinement to create what are called carbon super-composites, primary products for further industrial processing. Carbon super-composites are combinations of materials that unfold the special characteristics of carbon nanomaterials in the macroscopic world of real applications. All of our materials are manufactured on an industrial scale.
