FibreCoat GmbH (Aachen, Germany), a spin-off of RWTH Aachen University’s Institut für Textiltechnik (ITA), reports that it has developed a new, sustainable type of fibre reinforcement that combines basalt and aluminium materials to shield electromagnetic radiation (ER) from digital end devices, medical technology, or e-car batteries cheaply and effectively.
Two German businesses are working on a novel material with a fibre core composed of melted, thinly drawn basalt and covered with aluminium. FibreCoat can block 5G radiation in workplaces or hospital rooms, or it can enclose batteries, ensuring the smooth operation of electric vehicles. At the 17th IQ Innovationspreises Mitteldeutschland online event, the combined initiative also won the overall prize.
