Carbon Nanotubes company Nanocyl and specialised raw materials distribution & sales company Velox have signed an agreement for the distribution of Nanocyl’s carbon nanotubes-based products in Europe.
This partnership started at the beginning of the year and covers Nanocyl’s industrial grade multi-wall carbon nanotubes powder and thermoplastic concentrates. The collaboration between Velox and Nanocyl is aimed at a significant increase of the presence and penetration of Nanocyl’s Carbon Nanotubes on the European market within the segments of plastics, rubber, paints and coatings.
Olivier Decroly, Global Business Development Manager at Nanocyl: “At this exciting and accelerating times in the commercial development of Nanocyl, Velox is another essential element for promoting and distributing our well-appreciated range of products; Velox has been and is a leading company for the distribution of specialty raw materials and therefore we believe that the role of Velox will be crucial in the expansion of our market presence in Europe.”
Nanocyl products are mainly used as conductive additives in polymers for applications such as anti-static plastics for automotive fuel systems and electronics parts manufacturing. Other applications include conductive plastics for electrostatic painting, transparent antistatic coatings, reinforcement of technical rubbers and carbon fibre thermoset composites.
Short-lived bridge products that require constant care and regular replacement have prompted parks and recreation agencies to look for longer lasting alternatives.
During 2017 Brazilian company Fibermaq consolidated its filament winding portfolio.
Graphenano Composites has signed an agreement with Tecnivial to improve the properties of the composites used in the Spanish company’s traffic safety signs for airports, railways and roads by the incorporation of graphene.
