VISCONTI PININFARINA 1930 NANOTECH
In occasion of the 85 anniversary of Pininfarina, visconti is pleased to introduce the technological evolution of Pininfarina Carbografite.
With Carbongrafite, we took writing to the level of a material used in the aerospace industry: unidirectional carbon graphite with its unique technical and aesthetic features.
And now, for our new Pininfarina pen, we have turned to FORMULA ONE racing!
Once again we can talk about a new material subjected to a diffusion-based carbon nanotube treatment – thus impossible to remove – which is so strong that it is used by such leading Formula One teams as Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes.Nor does our new Pininfarina’s innovative approach end with the material used in its manufacture. We have also redesigned its mechanics in constantly optimizing Kaizen optics.
“Innovation, design and know how are the icons of the cooperation between Visconti and Pininfarina” said Paolo Pininfarina , President of the Group.“The continuos research and developments on materials has driven the team to the new Pininfarina Nanotech , expression of our common values”
All designers dream of being able to work with a light metal whose specific weight is one-third that of steel while having better resistance to corrosion than even the best stainless steel and greater resistance to abrasive wear than even hardened steel, and possibly even possessing antibacterial properties.
If a material with those specifications really did exist, all mechanical engineering projects would undergo radical improvement.This, because drastically reducing the material’s weight (65% less than steel) without forgoing excellence in its mechanical properties means reducing both energy consumption and inertia-related phenomena in every single mechanically moving part on the planet.
Well, this extraordinarily innovative material has recently been invented. It consists of aeronautical avional treated with carbon nanotubes and silver ions.
And Visconti has perfected the formula in nanotechnology, perfectly tailoring it to the requirements of writing.Nanotechnology is a branch of applied science and technology concerned with controlling material on a dimensional scale of less than one micrometre (one-millionth of a metre).
The properties of Nanotech
