|B.1 CIF-CONTINUOUS INORGANIC FIBERS INNOVATIVE PRODUCTION PROCESSES.|
Manufacturing Continuous Inorganic Fibers by Innovative CIF Processes
Continuous Inorganic Fibers , produced by CIF Manufacturing Process
Development Innovative,knowledge-based,reliable,smart,cost-effective Manufacturing Processes & Integrating it for production Multisectiorial Applications Products as Continuous Inorganic Fibers,based on clean,Low-Cost recyclable,non-flammable Worldwide spread Raw Materials & Advanced Equipment into the Plants of the Future & existing production Lines are very important Aims for the Key Emerging Technologies of the 21st Century like Natural & Energy Resources (Oil, Gas,Sun,etc),Advanced Composites,Automotive, Marine,Aerospace, Information,Electronics, Construction, etc.These issues are Priority Strategic Goals by USA, Europe,Asia & other Industrial World Regions.
Continuous Inorganic vitreous Fibers(Fiberglas,etc)are the most widespread materials used in the production of a large variety of Products in the World(not less as for 1000 Markets).Convential Processes for production existing Continuous Inorganic Fibers are complicated & not cost-ecology effective,because based on 7 to 8 expensive Raw Materials (R/M)-Boron Acid (Cost ~613 $ US/ ton), Kaolin, Colemanite ,Limestone,etc,on irrevocable consumption of very expensive precious materials -platinum,etc (Cost of such Precious materials is ~1 Million $US per Line for yearly production 1500 ton Glass Fibers,etc).CIF Processes are based on package successfully tested Innovative Ideas / Concepts. Our General Aims are License Marketing of CIF Processes to enormous Global Market of Inorganic Fibers.
In order to remove a / m deficiencies.Dr.Yaacov Epshtein is succeeded to develop and partial successfully implantate Innovative CIF processes,which allowed Reduce :Cost of Fiber' s Raw Materials by ~37%;Production Cost & Energy Consumption by ~25%,; Service Capital by ~25% compared to famous E-glass Fibers Processes; allowed Produce Acid, Alkali,Chemicals,Heat Resistant & not carcinogenic to humans Fibers(According Requirements of International Agency for Research on Cancer) for Substitute carcinogenic to humans Asbestos Fibers ; Rock , Slag , Glass Wool Fibers,etc Some Advantages of CIF Processes are following :
ENTERPRENEUR & INVENTOR OF CIF PROCESSES is Dr.Yaacov Epshtein-International recognized Expert,with extensive experience 21 years 1955-76 in Former Soviet Union (FSU) in planning and building of numerous Manufacturing Plants for Glass Fibers,etc Products & after 1976-25 years in West in the Commercial & Military fields, include Advanced Fibers , Composites,Mechanical Engineering for Israel Aircraft Industries , some USA Associations,etc.From 1989 he is heading ISCOM Composites Group. He is author published in the World 10 Books,30 original Papers in professional Journals , 27 R &D Reports in a / m Fields & Inventor , Exclusive Owner & Licensor registered in USA , UK, Japan , France , Holland , Russia , Israel of 98 Inventions , Designs , Patents & 312 completed Projects.

In the last years the convential Materials as Metals,Concrete,Wood,etc are loosing their place to Advanced Composite Materials - on base of various Reinforcement Fibers in general & Continuous Inorganic Fibers specifically. The U.S Government ranks Advanced Materials as one of the three most Emergency Technologies for the Future. "The World Market for Advanced Materials in the year 2000 were projected to be ~ 400 Bill. US$. The Value of Market for Glass Fibers is 1,2 Billion pound in USA only. The Market Demand for above mentioned Fibers has grown significantly every year, at rate of 10 percent" ( Center for Ceramic Research, USA - 1998).
Comprehensive Market Research, made by ISCOM show, that developed CIF Processes could use for production Continuous Inorganic Fibers for following Topical Applications with next World Market Value :
