UNLOCKING THE PRODUCTIVE EFFICIENCY OF CARBON FIBER

Vert Hex

Thread Innovations Inc.

Thread has developed a proprietary process to produce economic, efficient and scalable carbon fiber. This process leverages the naturally occurring molecular structure of asphaltenes within oil sands bitumen.

>50% PRODUCTION COST
UP TO 90% LOWER EMISSIONS
>10x GLOBAL SUPPLY EXPANSION

Carbon Fiber: A Next-Generation Material.

High Strength Up to 10x stronger than steel per unit of weight
Light Weight Strength-to-weight ratio critical to next-generation transportation and power density efficiency
Durable Corrosion and fatigue resistance extends the life of applications
Stiff Resistant to deformation pressure - up to 5x stiffer than aluminum
Thermodynamic Fire & heat resistant up to 1200°C with low thermal expansion.
Advancing Sustainability Permanently sequesters carbon from combustion supply chains into a nontoxic, biologically inert, and chemically stable form

Thread Pre-Commercialization Project

Thread has built a 10,000 square foot pre-commercial facility in Edmonton, Alberta, with the objective to: (i) demonstrate commercial scalability of the Thread proprietary process; and (ii) develop carbon fiber outputs to meet next-generation demand requirements.
