Carbon Nanotubes - Applications of Buckytubes in Structural Composites, Fibres and Fabrics

Structural Composites

The world-record properties of Buckytubes are not limited to electrical and thermal conductivites, but also include mechanical properties, such as stiffness, toughness, and strength. These properties lead to a wealth of applications exploiting them, including advanced composites requiring high values in one or more of these properties.

Fibres and Fabrics

Fibres spun of pure Buckytubes have recently been demonstrated [R.H. Baughman, Science 290, 1310 (2000)] and are undergoing rapid development, along with Buckytube composite fibres. Such super strong fibres will have applications ranging from body- and vehicle armour to transmission line cables to woven fabrics and textiles.
