Plasan and Q-Flo Announce Joint Venture
in survivability and combat-proven armor solutions and Q-Flo,
Fibres Ltd, a joint venture between the two companies.
TorTech, based in
enhancement of body armor and composite armor systems for vehicles. The new
material is stronger than Kevlar and other ballistic fabrics, but still
flexible and lightweight.
Q-Flo’s CEO, Dr.
with Plasan to further develop the world leading research by Prof.
Tortech, we intend to produce a carbon nanotube-based yarn, which can be
woven into the strongest-ever manmade material. Plasan’s expertise will then
enable the design and production of a revolutionary new range of body and
CEO of Plasan Group,
properties as carbon nanotube fiber could lead to a breakthrough in
structural composites and light weight armor applications. This is an
exciting venture since we believe Q-Flo’s carbon nanotubes have the potential
to revolutionize the defense industry through a new range of lightweight,
flexible and incredibly strong armored material.”
Plasan will have exclusive sales and marketing rights to
defense-orientated materials, whilst Q-Flo will retain rights for other
