The development division Electrovac Nanofibers (ENF) was created for the production
and subsequent processing of carbon nanofibers (CNF, nanoscaled graphite structures).
Among others, the physical properties of carbon are utilized to improve the
properties of compound materials, such as in masterbatches filled with CNF or
in epoxy resins. In addition to already existing, CNF-reinforced Electrovac
products, they can also be applied to enhance existing materials. Due to the
wide range of possible uses of CNF utilization, solutions are of interest to
various industry sectors, such as the automotive industry, the sports equipment
industry, and the aviation industry.
Carbon nanofibers are produced in the CCVD (Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition)
process. This process enables cost-efficient production of industry-scale volumes
for our customers.
Electrovac is Austria’s sole producer of carbon nanofibers (CNF) and
holds relevant patents for the production of such nanofibers (filiform graphite
tubes with a diameter of a few nanometers: 1nm = one millionth of a millimeter).
