This region will be represented on the show throught different companies which cover the entire value chain of composite manufacturing and are representative of Bavarian material competences.

 

CG Tec GmbHwill present their reinforced bar made of basalt fibre, called rebar.

Where concrete meets steel the result is reinforced concrete which offers higher tensile strength, making it a reliable building material commonly used all over the world. A good solution. But there is still a better one. CG TEC GmbH has proved this. The company is one of the 13 Bavarian enterprises represented at the joint both of the Cluster New Materials and the EU Co-operation Unit of Bayern Innovativ at the JEC Composite Show 2013 in Paris. Their solution: a reinforced bar made of basalt fibre, called rebar.

The rebar has several advantages over steel: high corrosion resistance, good mechanical properties and the same temperature expansion behaviour as the surrounding concrete. Temperature-related tensions have become rare. The product thus offers great future potential for reinforcing concrete components. But there is more: CG Tec GmbH is devoted to new materials and is the only manufacturer of standard semifinished basalt products such as rods and panels. They believe that the new basalt fiber rod will be a strong competitor for carbon and glass fiber in the mechanical engineering and automotive industry.

Together with CG Tec and 12 other Bavarian exhibitors, the Cluster New Materials and the EU Co-operation Unit of Bayern Innovativ GmbH as leading networking specialists in Bavaria and Europe will enable the joint booth to be a great success in this major technology exhibition again in 2013.

Bavaria is one of the most innovative and dynamic regions in Europe in the field of composite fiber technologies. The German top cluster MAI Carbon in the composite fiber region around Munich, Augsburg and Ingolstadt as well as Upper Franconia concentrate textile competences and are exemplary in this regard. A good enough reason for Bayern Innovativ GmbH and its two networks to showcase Bavarian key enterprises at the Bayern Innovativ joint booth at the leading exhibition for composites, the JEC Composite Show in Paris, again this year.

The Bavarian exhibitors participating in the joint booth cover the entire value chain of composite manufacturing and are representative of Bavarian material competences.
