In mid-2020, ExoTechnologies acquired 360 Quantillion, an innovative and specialist composite materials research organisation.
This collaboration of advanced composite material expertise and specialist engineering knowledge has developed a pioneering resource efficiency technology called DANU™ which is capable of accelerating the green transition to circularity for composite material used in maritime craft, ballistic resistance, wind turbine blades, automotive solutions, aircraft construction, food processing etc.
DANU™ Technical Properties
DANU™ has a specific resistance greater than stainless steel 316 and s-glass composite. DANU™ offers approx. twice the longitudinal strength of stainless steel 316 with a much lower stretch-ratio. Being considerably more stretch-resistant, it offers a lightweight solution over stainless steel 316. Excellent vibration, fatigue and corrosion resistance makes DANU™ a perfect replacement
DANU™ is a good electrical insulator even at low thickness. Its volume electrical resistance is higher, in order of magnitude, to the comparative s-glass composite. DANU™ electrical resistance remains stable, in a temperature range, between -60oC and 100oC
DANU™ is not sensitive to variations in temperature and hygrometry. It has a low co-efficient of linear and transverse expansion. DANU™, therefore, offers exceptional mechanical properties for loads under pressure, such as; (salt) water tanks, silos and storage containers
Compatibility with organic matrices:
DANU™ can have varying sizes, and has the ability to combine with many synthetic resins and certain mineral matrices like cement. The high-end adhesive factor to other elements offers a wide range of external adhesion applications
DANU™ does not rot in fresh or salt water and remains unaffected by the action of rodents and insects. DANU™ is relatively low maintenance and could support relevant applications, such as, food processing, beverage manufacturing etc…
DANU™ has low thermal conductivity and remains stable over a wide temperature range making it highly useful in the building industry. With high compression and tensile properties DANU™ can be used for walls, flooring and structural supports
