PROJET FORCE II
« Realistic and Optimised Fiber of Economic Carbon » - Program of investments of the future.
The Force II project is piloted by the Jules Verne Institute of Technological Research and primarily benefits from the know-how of the experience of CANOE which makes available its professional expertise in chemistry, and the formulation and spinning of polymers. The Force II project is also led in consortium with a group of industrialists (Faurecia, Arkema, Chomarat, Mersen, Plastic Omnium, Décathlon, Renault, Rhovyl, PSA, Total). The objective of the project is the realisation of a more economic carbon fiber, and therefore cost controlled, for the automotive, and leisure and sports industries. In this context, CANOE will implement a pre-industrial pilot unit of carbonisation on its site at Lacq. The fibers will be produced between now and 2018, and will be destined to different sectors for testing of the mechanical properties of the composite material and application conditions in production.
