Nanocyl has exhibited its carbon nanotube technologies for use in composite sporting goods and automotive electronics at Chinaplas 2011. The company showcased the NC 7000 and the EPOCYL CNTs.
Electrically conductive carbon nanotubes (CNTs) called the NC 7000 thin multiwall were displayed at the event. These materials are of small size and have nearly perfect chemical surface. The NC 7000 CNTs have high aspect ratio, which provides higher conductive performance at lower concentration.
The other product line that was exhibited was the EPOCYL specially-formulated CNTs. These epoxy resins provide the necessary benefits for application in sports, marine, automotive and aerospace. Benefits include weight reduction, durability, structural strength and conductivity. The EPOCYL is used in fiber-reinforced composite products.
Nanocyl’s new 400 mt reactor delivers high conductive and the cleanest carbon nanotube technologies to the market. The CNTs that are used in the automotive industry provide excellent resistance to fuel and also offer more cleanliness and electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties for electronics applications. The CNTs are used in the sporting goods sector, which needs durability and strength for higher performance.
