CFS® solutions address new environmental issues in architecture, construction and civil engineering, public infrastructure and equipment (urban furniture), OEM manufacturers, architects, real estate and hospitality.
TechnoCarbon®’s comprehensive skillset provide for adequate composite material solutions to be delivered to customers and prospects, according to their needs at the best quality/price ratio.
Thanks to its technology, TechnoCarbon® offers products in CFS®: semi-finished in the form of thin and thick sheets, walls, beams, building elements, pipes and other parts for equipment and consumer goods, and finished in the form of heated counters for restaurants or heaters, for example.
CFS® is perfectly adapted to the needs of the civil engineering, construction, energy, aerospace, defence and design sectors.
Since it does not use any rarefied natural resources such as fresh water or sand, it offers many economic, technical and environmental benefits.
CFS® is a stone – carbon fibre layered composite material. It is cured at relatively low temperature compared to other materials such as metals or cement, thereby enabling substantial manufacturing energy savings. The stone can be replaced by other minerals (glass, ceramics, recycled materials) allowing, in the long term, to create new products that are more economical or even more sustainable.
It is a family of composite materials whose manufacture has a carbon footprint 90% lower than that of traditional materials.
Developed in the 1950s and 1960s in Japan and the United States, carbon fibre has extraordinary physical properties: light, resistant and rustproof.
Until recently, its high cost has limited its use to aerospace and military applications.
The vision of Kolja Kuse, inventor of CFS®, was to combine this amazing material with stone to offer industrial solutions, adapted to the current environmental context and its impact on high CO2 emitting sectors.
The benefits of cfs®
À la fabrication
= No GHG emissions
CFS® is made by assembling two types of high quality materials: carbon fiber and stone, which represent 99% of its composition.
Zero waste, CO2, fine particles, use of sand, economical use of fresh water.
TechnoCarbon® is at the forefront of innovation and has protected its technologies and manufacturing secrets through multiple patents registered with EPO or INPI.
The Research & Development aspect being a cardinal value of the company, some of them are still kept secret.
