Nanocyl's NC 7000 multiwall carbon nanotubes will be a featured product line at this year’s Nano Korea conference. The company claim that this series of carbon nanotubes is one of the most electrically conductive CNTs currently available.
CNTs make it possible to develop, store and handle the most advanced integrated circuits, semiconductors, and hard disk drives (HDD). According to Nanocyl, the use of carbon nanotube technology can provide higher cleanliness, elimination of 'hot spots', dimensional stability, higher recyclability, and greater abrasion resistance.
A recent development in this technology has seen CNTs being integrated into automotive fuel lines, in order to help prevent the decay that can happen in fuel lines and pumps.
According to Nanocyl, South Korean companies have shown an increasing support for carbon nanotube technology, with hard disk drives and automotive navigation systems driving this demand.
""CNTs make it possible to develop, store and handle the most advanced integrated circuits, semiconductors, and hard disk drives (HDD),"" said Roberto Mongiovi, business development manager at Nanocyl.
""Carbon nanotube technology provides higher cleanliness, elimination of 'hot spots', dimensional stability, higher recyclability, and greater abrasion resistance,"" he added.
According to Mongiovi, carbon nanotubes can also help automakers design, produce and recycle lighter-weight parts that conduct electricity, save gas, and reduce C02 emissions.
Kordsa, operating in tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market with its mission ‘We Reinforce Life’, has launched a new campaign with the slogan ‘Inspired from life, we reinforce life’.
Dura Composites has expanded its Dura Deck range to include Dura Deck Resist, a co-extruded decking board with an innovative 360 degree outer angle which protects its core from the elements, as well as a new and improved Dura Deck Eco.
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
