Resumen:
Una pyme holandesa con experiencia en la creación de aleaciones ligeras resistentes a la corrosión y al desgaste ha desarrollado un nuevo material que combina la resistencia de la fibra de carbono con la resistencia al desgaste de las cerámicas. El proceso para aplicar la cerámica en la fibra de carbono se realiza a temperatura ambiente. A diferencia de los procesos convencionales de atomización, la cerámica tiene una excelente adhesión, no es porosa y puede aplicarse en partes inaccesibles, como en el interior de tuberías. Se buscan empresas de los sectores de automoción y aeroespacial interesadas en aplicar este material en sus productos de fibra de carbono para mejorar la resistencia al desgaste. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica, fabricación y licencia.

Tittle:
A Dutch SME is looking for a technical agreement cooperation for their new developed wear resistant carbon-fibre material
Summary:
A Dutch SME, experienced in creating outstanding wear and corrosion resistance for light alloys, developed a new material that combines the strength of carbon-fibre with the wear resistance of ceramics.
The SME is looking for companies interested in applying the material on their carbonfibre products to improve wear resistance. Especially companies in automotive and aerospace industries are invited. The aimed type of collaboration is technical cooperation, manufacturing agreement, licence
Description:
The Dutch company developed a new disruptive material which combines the properties of carbon-fibre and ceramics. With this new development the company was one of 10 finalists of the 2015 startupbootcamp Smart Materials which took place at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus. The newly developed material is light, strong and wear resistant and is an excellent solution when weight reduction as well as wear resistance is needed. The new material combines the wear resistance of ceramic and the light weight of carbon into a rigid, durable, ultra-strong and light-weight product.
The process to apply the ceramic to the carbon-fibre is unlike other ceramic applying processes not a spray (plasma) process. It has therefor the advantage that the carbon product is not exposed to heat during the ceramic process since it takes place at room temperature. Besides that there is no vacuum atmosphere needed when applying the ceramic.
The used raw material mainly consists of aluminium-oxide (Al2O3). In contrast to conventional spraying processes the ceramic has an excellent adhesion, is not porous and can also be applied on inaccessible parts of products such as the inside of tubes. The ceramic layer with a thickness of approximately 0,1 mm is bendable and flexible when the carbon substrate allows it (like sheet material). This is a unique feature when it comes to ceramic layers. Furthermore the ceramic coating is not an open structure (like sprayed ceramics). The unpolished product has a slight roughness to it, but when polished with diamond the ceramic surface can easily reach a roughness (Ra) of 0,08 microns.
The Dutch company is interested to developed new applications for their novel and disruptive material in joint development or licence agreement with industrial partners. Preferably with companies active in automotive and aerospace industry for sliding components like profiles, hydraulic cylinders, rotor blades, landing gear, suspensions and engine parts like piston pins and crankshafts. The new material can also protect carbon surfaces to wear caused by sand or gravel which is relevant for Formula 1 and helicopter applications.
Advantages and Innovations:
Advantages of the new material :
- Light (As light as carbon-fibre )
- Strong (As strong as carbon-fibre)
- Extreme wear-resistant (better than steel)
- Low friction
- Corrosion resistant
- UV resistant
- Flexible if necessary
- Excellent bonding to Aluminium due to galvanic/electrical isolation of ceramic.
- No galvanic corrosion to Aluminium and other metals.
- RoHS compliance (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
- No heat stress since the process takes place at room temperature.
Stage of Development:
Field tested/evaluated
