A world with countless possibilities

Nowadays, the fiber reinforced composites take an important place in industries, because they can replace metals and other materials. They possess the same or even better mechanical properties while lowering the weight of a construction, thus providing multiple advantages (better stability, energy savings, flexibility etc.).

A composite material consists of the matrix and the filament reinforcement. Some examples of matrices are epoxy resins, polyester resins and vinyl ester resins. On the other hand, widely used filament reinforcements are carbon fibers, glass fibers, kevlar, etc.

Why carbon fibers

To compare with, steel has a Young’s modulus of 210 GPa when carbon fibers have 230-820 GPa while weighing around 5 times less. Regarding aluminum, it has a Young’s modulus of 70 GPa and weighs around 50% more than carbon fibers.

Certifications of Doors, Windows & Curtain Walls

CFT has created, in cooperation with the IFT Rosenheim institute, the first testing laboratory in Greece which certifies the performance of windows, doors and curtain walls.

One of the tests aims to determine the ability of the tested body to absorb shock, to ensure the safety of people and to show resistance to forced entry with a soft and heavy body.
