Fulcrum SP Materials SP1/CNT Increases GRP-Epoxy Composites Toughness

18 February 2014

Fulcrum state it has delivered substantial improvements in interfacial properties of glass fibre-epoxy composites by coating fabric with carbon nanotubes using its SP1 protein.

Using nanotechnology and specifically carbon nanotubes, Fulcrum says its SP1/CNT solution increases the toughness of such composites by at least 30% without affecting the overall strength, enabling customers to introduce glass/epoxy composites to highly demanding applications, and keeps costs affordable.

Its customers, Fulcrum claim, have already successfully deployed the SP1/CNT reinforcement solution in the aerospace market, realising the commercialised scale and advantages of nanotechnology in composites.

“Our unique SP1/CNT technology, which combines biotech and nanotechnology, implemented for mass production in standard textile dyeing machines, enables us to provide our customers with a wide variety of solutions, tailored for their specific needs. We are very satisfied with our customers’ feedback and cooperation in introducing our SP1/CNT complex for their products. We encourage companies to contact us in order to collaborate in working on their specific needs“, said Nimrod Litvak, Fulcrum’s CEO.
