Built on the NFC Next Generation X-Ray “C6O2” material
What is C6O2?
C6 is the atomic number for Carbon, and O2 is the chemical formula for Oxygen, a component of air. One of our initial testers of the blank provided in his feedback that holding this blank is like holding air – so the name “Carbon Air” stuck.
C6O2 is not just a name. Its a new fiber and a new technology that holds the fiber together.
We believe in technology that you can see – and Air Carbon is a combination of a pure carbon mesh that is so light, a puff of air sends it flying, (click on the product video to see!) combined with a fiber that is deemed “strategic” by our government and thus non-exportable and is provided by allocation to a select number of factories across ALL industries in the US. There is a benefit to being Gary Loomis and being in the composites industry for 50+ years – when a new material comes out, your name is on a “short list” of those to call to run some tests.
The result? Blanks that are 30% lighter than our X-Ray and 50% stronger.
