Fulcrum SP Materials will be collaborating with Arkema Inc. to develop high performance composite parts with improved damage resistance. The deal will see Arkema contributing its multiwall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) technology, whilst Fulcrum will bring its propriety protein base interface and dispersion technology for CNTs.

The objective of the project is to develop a technology allowing the grafting of CNTs on two dimensional or three dimensional woven fabrics such as Carbon fibres. Such reinforced fabrics will be used to produce advanced composite parts for applications in aeronautics or other industrial applications.

This partnership builds on work carried out by Arkema over the last three years. Previously, the company has been involved in several major development programs designed to assist companies seeking innovation by using nano-structured materials

“”Fulcrum’s innovative technology of bonding carbon nanotubes directly to the fabric such as carbon fiber, is unique and if successful, could set new standards in advanced composites markets,”” said Moshe Kelner, President of Arkema in Israel.

“”We welcome the agreement with Arkema, this cooperation will enable Fulcrum to reach a wider base of applications and customers with our ground breaking technology,”” said Nimrod Litvak, Fulcrum’s CEO.
