An eventful March for Carbon Waters!

An eventful March for Carbon Waters! Events & awards 3 April 2024


To present our performance additives to industrial customers and discuss the benefits of graphene for a wide range of materials, Carbon Waters teams were busy in March, taking part in no less than four trade shows.

Here’s a look back at this eventful month.

JEC World: the must-attend composites event

The March trade show season kicked off with JEC World 2024, held at the Parc des Expositions de Paris Villepinte from March 5 to 7. This international event takes place every year and brings together the majority of composites manufacturers, notably from the aerospace and automotive sectors. Carbon Waters was present for the fifth year running, under the collective pavilion of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region. This year’s event was a resounding success for the team, who racked up over 20 qualified meetings.

The main demand from manufacturers? Increasing the mechanical properties of polymers and composites. On the strength of the latest results obtained for its Graph’Up Force TS additives, Carbon Waters was able to demonstrate the range’s performance to companies. They were keen to test samples or to continue discussions on a possible customized study.

JEC World was also an opportunity to consolidate links with existing partners and to discuss future developments.

World Impact Summit: The global gathering for climate actions

Carbon Waters at the World Impact Summit 2024

Alongside the JEC, Carbon Waters was also present at the World Impact Summit in Bordeaux on March 7 and 8. This event aims to highlight French players developing solutions in favor of the environmental transition. Exhibiting on the startup corner of our partner CleanTech Open France, and through a pitch on March 8, Carbon Waters was able to explain to visitors how its products are part of a more sustainable industry. Indeed, our production process consumes few resources, additives can replace other products that are harmful to health and the environment (in coatings in particular), and they improve the overall performance of materials, thereby increasing their lifespan.

Techinnov: 100% innovation day

On March 26, part of the Carbon Waters team attended the Techinnov event on the startup corner, at the Parc Floral de Paris, for a day dedicated to the latest French innovations. It proved to be a fruitful meeting for our team, punctuated by around ten meetings with mainly companies from the automotive and energy sectors, as well as project managers and open innovation players.

Eurocoat: the meeting place for coatings formulators

Our teams were also present at Eurocoat on March 26, 27 and 28 at Paris Porte de Versailles. On their stand, Thomas Bottein, Formulations & Coatings Project Manager, and Nicolas Castet, COO and Product Manager for the Graph’Up Oxi and Graph’Up Preserv ranges, welcomed numerous visitors. Among them were distributors and paint formulators already familiar with graphene and its properties, and keen to learn more about our additive ranges. In addition to interest in anti-corrosion applications, they were also interested in mechanical resistance (anti-abrasion), thermal resistance and electrical conductivity.

On the second day, Thomas Bottein also gave a talk on “Graphene-based performance additives: what results for the coatings sector?“, attended by some 80 participants, many of whom then came to the stand for further information.

The month of March was marked by Carbon Waters’ very active presence on the industrial scene, confirming our major role in the development of innovative solutions to meet today’s industrial challenges. Our teams would like to thank all the companies who came to meet us at these events!
