Carbon-NanoWeld is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research and Innovation Foundation (Project: ENTERPRISE/0916/0030)”. The project was launched in May 1st, 2018 and is expected to be completed by April 30th, 2020.

Carbon-NanoWeld presents the industrial development of an innovative technical carbon fabric, the NanoWeld® fabric, with a revolutionary strength-weight ratio (SWR) compared to currently commercially available carbon fabrics.
The general objective of the project is the research and development for optimizing the technical properties of NanoWeld® as a commercial product to the market and for designing a full-scale industrial production of the novel, NanoWeld® carbon fabric. The superior technical properties of NanoWeld® are based on the introduction of additional effective load-transfer mechanisms, which excessively enhance fabrics performance and eventually CFRP composite strength. In the lamina level, NanoWeld® creates a fractal structure, which effectively transfers the load imitating structures that serve nature for millions of years so far, such as feathers.

Carbon-NanoWeld is coordinated by AmaDema in partnership with the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of Cyprus University of Technology (CUT). Carbon-NanoWeld aims to involve the project’s young postdoctoral researchers in original, high-tech industrial research work in the field of advanced polymer nano-composite materials through novel activities of material design, processing, and experimental evaluation. The proposed work is expected to significantly contribute to AmaDema’s R&D activities as well as its establishment in local & EU market.
