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.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) selected a lightweight FiberSPAN fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge deck, manufactured by Composite Advantage, for the Rugg Bridge on Route 57.
The Lightweight Technologies Forum will take place in parallel to Composites Europe, on 6-8 November 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany.
Tecniplas will exhibit FRP tanks suitable for contact with drinking water at the Fispal Tecnologia food and drink trade fair in São Paulo, Brazil, on 26-28 June.
