LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® TECHNOLOGY

The LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® technology is composed by the HC Carbon/Kevlar DuPont™ HC composites and DuPont™ Kevlar®  fiber in other forms helps provide lightweight strength, stiffness, toughness, corrosion resistance and other attributes, which bring high value-in-use to industries such as aerospace, military, and marine racing shipping.

For more than 30 years, the aerospace industry has embraced HC composite made with DuPont™ Nomex® for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio, which helps to provide vital light-effective benefits like energy savings and performance increases. Stiff, thin Nomex® sheet structures are used to help make strong, yet lightweight, HC sandwich composite found in aircraft parts such flooring panels, interior walls, storage bins, exterior control surfaces, engine nacelles, and helicopter blades and tail booms. Nomex® HC composites are also used in the construction of boats to help provide buoyancy that enhances speed.

We applied the LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® to our bikes and after three years of designs, projects, prototypes and tests in the most important races in South Europe, we reach a brilliant result. Today we are proud to announce something unique, technologically advanced, performances oriented an absolutely brilliant. The new MY2017 ZEROUNO Bikes with the LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® technology.    

LUNAR HC composites made with DuPont™ Kevlar® entered the market about 15 years ago and proved to be the most efficient weight saving solution for the aerospace industry due to even higher specific strength and stiffness compared to DuPont™ Nomex® solutions.

Construction composites help strengthen concrete structures

LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® deliver performance and value to customers in the construction composites industry by helping to provide better elongation properties. Kevlar® helps contain cracks in the structures caused by construction mistakes when natural disasters occur.

LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® technology, help engineers to make super stiff and rigid bikes, which is mean super reactive and fast but the LUNAR HC absorb the vibrations comes from the road and make the bike very comfortable at the same time.
ZEROUNO bikes in LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® give and extra control in down hill, extra stiff to climb and made your new ZEROUNO bike, the perfect racing machine.       

AVION HC internal tube
LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® use this sandwich core when high strength-to-weight ratios are required. This HC is an aerospace-grade aramid fiber constructed from DuPont paper that is phenolic coated. Over-expanded cell structures allow it to be more flexible, which also makes it perfect for use in tight radius curves.

    •    High fire resistance and thermally insulating
    •    Bonds well with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins (and most adhesives), reducing peel


ZEROUNO EXCLUSIVE CARBON FINISHING

Some ZEROUNO models are finished with the exclusives LUNAR 4X4 Twill. First quality fabric woven by one of the premier weavers in the industry. This fiber is a flatter tow resulting in reduced open area for the weight of the mold. Fewer pinholes and less resin usage result. This material not only has outstanding appearance, it also makes superior structural parts and tubes.

Sophisticate technology for the highest performance bikes on the planet: 

Athletes expect performance, our technology helps you deliver it. LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® is a vibration-canceling technology that significantly improves performance without compromising structure, giving your product the competitive edge that today’s athletes need. A true composite-materials solution, LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® is applicable to a wide range of commercial products with virtually no impact to the production and manufacturing process.

Building on our successful demonstrations in the sporting goods market through ZEROUNO Racing Bikes, LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® testing is underway in other markets where dynamic response is important. Let us be your technological advantage.


ZEROUNO HC ADVANTAGES

-Maximized ride control and handling under normal to extreme vibration loads

-Increased rigidity and peak power output over long distances


Tubes are designed with our specific ZEROUNO Aerodynamic Advantages Design (ZAAD). Every details of this frame, are designed to help riders to improve their performances, at international races or every weekend fighting against your friends.



LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® It's the must on Aerospace and F1 applications. ZEROUNO Frames and forks passed the strict ISO test. ZEROUNO Bikes recived the Original 100% Made in Italy certificate in 2015.


 

LUNAR HM® CARBON TECHNOLOGY

Void of compromise and full of intense performance! Zerounot's high modulus tubing utilizes a high performance resin system giving it a higher Tg and special hardening agents. This combination yields an astounding product comprised of a multi-directional layup of only high modulus fibers with a higher temperature resin system. Our 1.0" ID x 1.098" OD (flat to flat) high modulus square tubing is designated generally by using an outer layer of a 3k plain weave fabric.

1.0" ID ROLL WRAPPED HIGH MODULUS TUBING FACTS

57 msi Unidirectional carbon fiber throughout with a Plain weave outer woven layer for increased performance when machining and hole drilling. Can easily be trimmed into shorter lengths for your complete build. Nearly 2x stiffer than all standard modulus tubes. Estimated to have an elastic modulus of ~18Msi key feature for the new generation of the LUNAR HM Carbon.

Extra reactive tubing used for the Chain Stay construction and named Endless Energy Chain Stay. This unique technology will save some watts to the athlete and give you the feeling of an endless push forward.
