Carbit® is the only patented technology (international patent WO2017093983) for the development of carbon fiber and composite materials products for permanent food contact. Carbit® products are therefore suitable for food contact and are FDA – EU certified.

Opportunity: the composite materials are light, resistant, aesthetically beautiful and customizable, they can replace traditional materials but they are strongly abrasive and potentially releasing fibers and epoxy resins, they are not suitable to come into contact with food and drink.

Answer: Carbit®, a patented technology that glazes the surface of composite fibers (carbon fiber, CFRP, etc.), so that they can come into contact with water, beverages and food without releasing fibers or resins.

Morevover Carbit®:

  • protects the underlying fiber, eliminates abrasiveness and, at the same time, preserves its elasticity;
  • it can be used with different coatings according to the technical-applicative needs;
  • it has a glassy appearance, high resistance to impacts and scratches, it is glossy or opaque with a seal at temperatures up to 70 ° C or up to 350 ° C depending on the chosen coating;
  • the coatings that Combo uses are FDA – EU certified and are dishwasher safe.

Carbit® applications are many: luxury items, components for industrial lines, medical and dental instruments and much more.
