Decarbonising functional fillers for Fused Granulate Fabrication (FGF)

Future materials need to be sustainable, in the true meaning of the word, being it technically, ecologically and economically. Keeping this in mind, CARBOGANIC developed functional biocarbon fibers and fillers for engineered composite applications that outperform conventional fibers and fillers when applied in Fused Granulate Fabrication.

Within the AM field CARBOGANIC developed additives that improve mechanical properties in combination with additional functionalities, currently for Fused Granulate Fabrication.

A presentation by Bart Tambuyser, managing director at CARBOGANIC Fibers & Fillers.
