Why we're different
The global challenge to design and develop the next generation of fit-for-purpose, resource-efficient carbon fibre materials and structures is under way and Carbon Nexus is ready to assist in meeting it.
Carbon Nexus' research and pilot carbon fibre lines can be hired by industry partners to carbonise their precursors in a secure environment.
Both these fully instrumented lines offer great flexibility of process parameters enabling new carbonisation processes to be explored and optimised.
What we deliver
Proof of concept
Experience research and development on a world-class scale, delivered by a team of design and engineering experts. The Carbon Nexus research team will collaborate with your representatives to achieve your industry needs and maximise project outcomes.
Carbon Nexus promises absolute flexibility, support and minimised project risk. Use our experts and our comprehensive facilities in whichever way best benefits your organisational requirements.
Tailored and intensive training programs for production line staff.
Integration with the Australian Future Fibres Research and Innovation Centre (AFFRIC) - a world class materials research institute administered by Deakin University and the Australian Government's lead scientific agency, CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation).
Access to outstanding research capabilities. Deakin's materials engineering and macromolecular chemistry research has been awarded the top Australian ranking, putting it in the class of being "well above world standards".
Open access IP
The Carbon Nexus research facility provides a secure open access IP environment predicated on collaboration with world-leading experts in carbon fibre and composite research.
Work as collaboratively as you like within an environment purpose built to accommodate your project-specific needs, all underpinned by the IP protection of Australia's favourable legal and legislative frameworks.
Legislative and legal environment
Carbon Nexus is strongly supported by the Australian and Victorian governments, the Australian technology and manufacturing industries and underpinned by a legal system that provides world's best practiced IP protection for business innovators.
