OFFER from Italy, reference: TOIT20160628001, valid from 23-03-2018 untill 21-01-2019

  • Title:
    Carbon fiber and composite material for food and beverage contact
  • Start date:
    23 maart 2018
  • End date:
    21 januari 2019 (3 dagen geleden)
  • Summary:
    An Italian designer of composite materials products has developed a technology which allows the use of composite fibres like carbon for any type of food and beverage contact applications and devices, obtaining the advantages for strength and lightness, but also for the aesthetical, mechanic, thermal and electrical behaviour. Companies are sought for technical or commercial cooperation with technical assistance as well as licensing agreement to use this technology in further product applications.
  • Description:
    After many years of experience in design, product development and mould machining for many composite material applications, an Italian designer was able to develop a new technology which permits to make composite fibre materials, e.g. carbon fibre, approved for food and beverage contact.
    This technology allows to put together design, high tech, strength and lightness with the eating and drinking pleasure.
    This new technology can boast a wide range of applications, such as: aerospace, manufacturing, food & beverage, luxury, medical and nautical sectors, etc
    Thanks to his wide and long lasting experience on composite sector, he can offer a turnkey product, design, development, mould and tool construction, prototyping and production.
    The designer is looking for companies operating in food & beverage products, such plates, glasses, bottles as well as tanks or pipes. These companies should be interested in technical or commercial cooperation with technical assistance in these technology applications or in the development of new products.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    License agreement, Technical cooperation agreement
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    Companies manufacturing products to be used in contact with food and beverages could use carbon and other composite materials to substitute the traditional ones. The italian designer is interested in licensing agreement for the patent or technical cooperation agreement to adapt the technology to spefici product applications.

  • Advantages and Innovations:
    The technological innovation allows to make parts for food and beverage contact applications with these main characteristics:
    - High strength
    - Very light weight
    - High design and elegance
    - Special, patented and bacterial resistant coating.
    Thanks to these relevant qualities, it is possible to replace what exists, for example stainless or steel items, with carbon fibre products. A simple object made with this technology can have great advantages, the light weight reduces transport costs or a simple tank can become a structural part, etc.
