Resumen:
Una pyme holandesa ha desarrollado un nuevo material basado en carbono puro para crear redes tridimensionales del tamaño de micras. Las redes forman una estructura óptima para mejorar la transferencia de electrones, calor y fuerzas mecánicas. Cuando se incorporan en pequeñas cantidades, el rendimiento de elastómeros, termoplásticos y plásticos termoendurecidos mejora considerablemente. En determinados casos, los materiales reforzados con redes de carbono pueden utilizarse para sustituir componentes metálicos, reduciendo el consumo de combustible y las emisiones de CO2 en aviación, automoción y aplicaciones marítimas. La empresa busca socios en sectores industriales avanzados con el fin de establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
New porous carbon material for thermally and electrically conductive plastics
Summary:
A Dutch sme offers a new material consisting of pure carbon that forms micron-sized three dimensional networks. These provide an optimum structure for enhancing the transfer of electrons, heat or mechanical forces. Added in low amounts, the performance of elastomers, thermoplastics and thermosets can be significantly improved. The company is seeking partners in various high-end industrial sectors for commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Description:
A Dutch SME offers a new material made of pure carbon. It consists of micron-sized structures - the thickness of a human hair - that form a three dimensional network of highly ordered carbon atoms. The ordered carbon atoms are densely packed into a chemically linked network. This crystalline network provides an optimum structure for transfer of electrons, heat or mechanical forces. Hence, the carbon networks can be added as a filler in low amounts to significantly improve the performance of elastomers, thermoplastics and thermosets in a wide range of applications, like lightweight reinforced plastics and antistatic packaging materials. It can replace metal parts and even glass fibre.

As an example, carbon networks provide similar tensile strength and moduli in comparison to glass fibres in a nylon matrix. However, due to the almost 10 times lower density (0.2 g/cc versus 2.5 g/cc) it is possible to create much lighter products of similar mechanical strength. In some cases, carbon network reinforced materials can even be used to replace metallic components, reducing fuel consumption and decreasing CO2 emissions in aviation, automotive and marine applications.

The Dutch company is seeking partners in various high-end industrial sectors that would implement this new material into their products. Because they control the morphology of the product, they are able to engineer an optimum configuration for different applications. They will analyse the best solution, while closely monitoring the effect on processability. together with the client, they will further process the product into the desired matrix and actively assist in evaluation of the final product. Therefore they are aiming for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Advantages and Innovations:
Compare to state of art the low density of carbon networks results in lighter products, saving on fuel, reducing CO2 emissions and material costs. Next to that, these carbon networks are fully recyclable unlike fibre reinforcements. Furthermore, the material can be processed and recycled with standard equipment and most important, is not associated with potential hazards linked to particle size or shape such as asbestos or nanoparticles.
