With its X-treme Carbon range, LAMILUX is pushing the boundaries of technology and exploit- ing the full performance potential of fibre-reinforced composites. The strength and rigidity values are many times higher than those of normal composites. The amount of material required can therefore be significantly reduced, in many cases, resulting in a corresponding reduction in weight.
This is made possible by combining high-strength, rigid, lightweight carbon fibres with an extremely resilient epoxy resin matrix.
LAMILUX X-treme Carbon is available
- In thicknesses between 0.6 and 2.4 mm
- In widths up to 2.5 m, depending on the product version

Examples for fields of application
LAMILUX ANTIBAC: TRIPLE EFFECT AGAINST PATHOGENS
LAMILUX has developed an innovative composite material for the medical field: this fibre-reinforced plastic has a special nano silver surface which has an antibacterial effect. The effect: Germs die off within a few hours. The innovative material is thus an excellent
choice, e.g., for wall coatings in operating theatres and other medical institutions.
In addition to use in hospitals, there are numerous fields of application for the antibacterial high-tech material in the food industry. More specifically where high standards of hygiene must be complied with, and sterility is of the utmost importance; for example, in cold
stores, refrigerated cells and transports, as well as in processing rooms and abattoirs.
With its permanent effect, LAMILUX AntiBac helps to compensate for natural fluctuations in cleaning and disinfection at every point of the wall and ceiling surfaces. This creates a redundant system of maximum hygienic safety.
What disinfection means here is reducing germs by a factor of at least 105; in other words, thanks to LAMILUX AntiBac fewer than 10 of 1,000,000 replicable germs survive.
WITHOUT LAMILUX ANTIBAC
Cleaning and disinfection are not always equally effective at all locations.
WITH LAMILUX ANTIBAC
LAMILUX AntiBac offers continuous disinfection at any point of the surface, even in hard to reach areas.
LONG-TERM EFFECT & DURABILITY
- Silver ion release (worst case conditions) under substance-specific limit for food contact as per EU regulations on biocidal products (50 ng/g)
- Theoretical durability: 55 years (= max. duration of silver ion release and consequent anti-microbial effect when cleaned twice a day) with maximum aggressive cleaning method with nitric acid (HNO3 at 40°C )
- Laboratory weathering as per DIN ISO 4892-A-2 1,000 h
- Condensation test 40 °C 100% R.H. (no change in the material and surface properties)
- Temperature cycle test 8 h 80 °C/16 h 25 °C 6 weeks (no change in material and surface properties)
- Temperature aging at 80 °C for 6 weeks (no change in material and surface properties)
