Global materials specialists met at the IDTechEx Show, on November 20-21, 2019. Among them was Carbon Waters, invited to present its technology.
Several trade shows and conferences attract graphene specialists every year. Among those that focus the most on industrial impacts is the IDTechEx Show.
Organized by a marketing research company specialized in emerging and impactful technologies, IDTechEx, this trade show takes place in Europe in the spring and in the United States in the autumn.
The latest edition, held in Santa Clara on November 20-21, 2019, included 250 booths and 3500 participants—including Alban Chesneau, CEO of Carbon Waters.
IDTechEx invited Carbon Waters to present its technology. I spoke to an audience that included industrial actors and technological experts.
This type of event allows us to publicize our innovations in the field of anticorrosion and material protection to a very international public.”
Ahead of the competition
Three hundred companies were on site to present their solutions at Santa Clara, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Graphene was the main topic, but printed electronics, energy storage, and MtoM sensors were also discussed.
“During the trade show, I met several European, American, and Japanese companies,” says Alban Chesneau. “We are currently in communication with some of them.” Possibly future partners?
“IDTechEx was also an opportunity to conduct a competition analysis for the sector. And I must say I was reassured: Carbon Waters is keeping its head start! It is interesting, however, to see that large industrial groups such as Ford are already incorporating graphene on a large scale. In this case, in cars and more particularly in polyurethane foams.”
“It’s important to note that graphene makes it possible to significantly improve the mechanical resistance and thermal diffusion of these foams. Then we can replace the metal with a polymer that needs to be reinforced with this material. Graphene can look forward to a prosperous future!” And so can Carbon Waters.
