Dacomat was selected by the EU among 81 projects and focuses on infrastructures –bridges, roads and energy production tools-, which suffer from heavy weights and aggressive environmental conditions during their service life. Material failures result in inactivity, with negative effects on productivity and comfort in terms of time and money, what is well-known by Carbures, since the Company applies its technological knowledge to manufacturing.
Carbures has spent long time studying and applying composites in the civil works sector, what results in its experience and know-how from works like the extension of a seaport at Fuerteventura (the Canary Islands) or the brand-new roof at Norman Foster Foundation in Madrid. Composites are more and more used for all these applications, thanks to their low weight, their high resistance and rigidity, as well as their extended environmental stability. All this knowledge will be applied by Carbures to Dacomat, an international cutting-edge project.
