A Revolutionary New Carbon

CarbonX is a newly discovered porous carbon material consisting of chemically linked nanostructures that form a highly oriented network. It’s an excellent enhancer of material properties, varying from accurately controlled electrical and thermal conductivity to lightweight reinforcement.

Boosting Material Performance

With CarbonX, it is possible to create lightweight, reinforced and conductive materials. The uniform nanostructure networks can be easily embedded into a wide range of polymer compounds. No need for extensive pre-processing steps. As a result, compounders, formulators and product designers experience ultimate freedom of design. Whether you want to control electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity or require mechanical reinforcement: the pre-formed network structure provides uniform properties in every direction. Smooth processing is ensured as the nanostructures are hindered from agglomeration in the rigid network structure. Ultra-thin films and complex product details are possible since process-ability is minimally affected.


Scalable, Low-cost Manufacturing

CarbonX’ proprietary technology has been successfully tailored to fit globally existing carbon production facilities. In contrast to many other new (carbon) materials, this highly-scalable process ensures the supply of large-volumes at a competitive price point. A wide range of carbon nanofiber networks is now being explored, in close collaboration with selected production partners. Next to advantages in price and product availability, this also provides the possibility to customize grades in large volume on request.

Carbon Productivity

Carbon productivity is defined as the value generated from each unit of fossil carbon”. By transforming a fossil fuel into a high added value durable material, we’re doing just that. The carbon is captured into a solid, highly-organized structure to form an isotropic network of hybrid nanostructures. Once applied, these carbon networks provide long term value in fields of Recyclability, Miniaturization, Light-weighting, 3D-Printing and Smart Materials.
