14 August 2009

Nanomaterials specialist, Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), have joined forces with Toho Tenax America to use Tenax carbon fibre in the construction of their 540SE advanced technology demonstrator boat.

ZPM’s carbon nanotube technology prepreg, Arovex, will be made using Tenax carbon fibre for this project.

“Toho Tenax America is proud to be partnering with Zyvex Performance Materials on this exciting initiative. Their technology enhances the performance of carbon fibre composites, and this project will vividly demonstrate that.” says Rob Klawonn, President of Toho Tenax America.

“Our fibres and ZPM technology are key ingredients necessary to create a new line of super efficient transportation solutions for the 21st century.” Klawonn added.

“Building the boat with Tenax fibres will allow us to work with the highest quality fibres available today.” comments Lance Criscuolo, President of ZPM. “Toho Tenax America is a reputable, quality carbon fibre producer. For over 30 years, Toho’s PAN based carbon fibres have seen extensive use in North America in aerospace, general industrial and sporting goods applications. With consistently high quality fibres and excellent service, they are an ideal partner for this venture.”
