COMPOSITE MATERIALS USE IN THE MARKET
FLEXIBLE COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING SERVICES for VARIOUS INDUSTRIES
CarboNovus can accommodate any design or engineering request, as well as manufacture made-to-order or serial production components.
Its highly flexible organization can accommodate all different types of customers.
Its main clients are:
Companies already using fiberglass composite materials who want to improve the mechanical properties of their product while lowering its weight at the same time with the use of carbon fiber.
Companies using traditional construction materials (especially metals) who want to make innovations in their products using composite materials in general and carbon in particular.

Leading boat companies are making substantial investments towards improving their technologies and materials.
A number of these are evaluating with CarboNovus the possibility of substituting the fiberglass in their existing products, including watercraft superstructures, with carbon fiber. This move would result in reduced boat weight and a lowered center of gravity for better performance and reduced maintenance costs.
Automotive Industry & EV Cars
& EV CARS
Composite materials are becoming an increasingly popular choice for the automotive industry, especially with the rise of electric vehicles (EVs). Composites are known for their lightweight, yet strong and durable properties, which can greatly enhance the efficiency and performance of EVs. By reducing the weight of the car, composite materials can help increase the range of the vehicle, while also improving its acceleration and handling.
In addition, composite materials are highly customizable, allowing for the creation of complex shapes and designs that can improve aerodynamics and reduce drag, further boosting the efficiency of EVs. The use of composites in the automotive industry is a promising trend that is expected to continue in the future as the demand for more sustainable and efficient transportation options grows.
In the building sector there is ever more frequent use of composite materials. Among the most relevant benefits can be mentioned:
Buildings made of composites are particularly lightweight and allow for a substantial reduction of foundation elements.
Carbon fibers can be impregnated with fire-resistant resins.
Composite materials, particularly those reinforced with carbon fiber, have greater resistance to fatigue than any metal.
Composite structural components have neither ordinary nor extraordinary maintenance needs.
Construction is faster, with greatly reduced building site costs and risks compared to normal operations.

Composite materials, especially carbon fiber, represent the present and the future of the wind energy sector. The use of composites in rotor blades results in significant weight reduction, improving their performance and mechanical properties.
These advantages are of vital importance for large-dimensioned blades, where light weight is indispensable for the survival of the wind turbine itself.
Composite materials have revolutionized the aerospace industry, providing lightweight, high-strength, and durable solutions for a wide range of applications. Composites are used extensively in the design and construction of modern aircraft, including commercial airliners, military jets, and space vehicles.
These materials offer superior performance in terms of weight reduction, structural integrity, and resistance to corrosion and fatigue.
In addition, composites can be molded into complex shapes, allowing for greater design flexibility and aerodynamic efficiency.
Carbon fiber reinforced composites, for instance, are commonly used in the construction of aircraft fuselages, wings, and engine components due to their high strength-to-weight ratio. The use of composites has enabled aircraft to be lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient, resulting in significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
The aerospace industry continues to invest heavily in research and development of new and innovative composite materials, driving advances in the field and ensuring continued growth and success in the future.

The mechanical properties and weight savings associated with the use of carbon fiber makes it a material that is particularly adapted for sporting components and equipment.
Lately, carbon fiber has attained a special aesthetic appeal: the “carbon look” is achieved by applying a simple transparent coating to the visible fabric.
CarboNovus is currently designing a new range of components for horseback riding.
Italy is the country holding the greatest capital of tangible cultural heritage in the world (60% of global cultural property is found in or was made in Italy). Much of this heritage is requested for loan by international museums for display in exhibitions.
Art transport is a delicate matter, and international regulations have become ever more restrictive in order to better protect the works themselves.
Composite materials hold a winning card in this arena compared to traditional solutions.
The light weight and rigidity of composites is ideal for packing crates and supports that can safeguard the artworks. The moldability of these materials means the crate can be made to the exact shape required. This technology is particularly suitable for three-dimensional pieces.
Sophisticated monitoring technologies can be integrated into such composite crates, allowing for the continuous oversight of parameters such as temperature, humidity and strains to preserve the integrity of the works.
