Apropos K

Rock solid: Carbon-reinforced concrete from Augsburg

More strength thanks to specific carbon fibre alignment

Nozzles instead of formwork and casting

Extremely tough and strong

Strength increased by 1340 %

Buildings without steel-reinforced concrete

Implementation by 3D printing

Multifunctional applications
