Home > Press > FutureCarbon showing for the first time at JEC Composites 2010 in Paris

Abstract:
A heated coating easily applied to a vast variety of surfaces of any geometry as standard acrylic paint. And a granulate of carbon nanotubes that disperses as simply in fluids as soluble coffee powder in hot water. These are among the innovative products that FutureCarbon is exhibiting at JEC Composites 2010 in Paris from April 13 to April 15.

FutureCarbon showing for the first time at JEC Composites 2010 in Paris

Bayreuth, Germany | Posted on April 6th, 2010

There are just two focal developments in the product portfolio of the Bayreuth-based company, presented at booth F65 in hall 1.2. The first of them, Carbo e-Therm, is an electrically heated coating based on carbon nanomaterials. Carbo e-Therm can be applied like paint to any surface, and operated on a non-hazardous small voltage of, for example 12 or 24 volts. Compared to conventional heating systems the radiation of heat from a Carbo e-Therm coating is absolutely even and without any hot spots. Carbo e-Therm is already in use in numerous applications such as panel heating for automobiles and floor heating or wall heating.

In CarboGran FutureCarbon is presenting a dry and dustfree granulate of carbon nanotubes. CarboGran is characterized by excellent solubility. Unlike standard carbon nanotubes it disperses direct in very different liquids such as water, alcohol, ethylene glycol and similar solvents. For the first time, direct further processing with conventional mixer apparatus and without the effort of predispersion, has been enabled. Depending on how the granulate is dosed, specific electrical and mechanical properties can be created in the end-product, such as coatings, sealants and adhesives, varnishes or conducting plastic flooring.
