Quantum Polymers have launched Quantano extruded stock shape plastic products made with TEGO polymers, featuring carbon nanotube technology, manufactured by Entegris.
The new Quantano product line using TEGO polymers is intended to provide improved mechanical strength, homogenous controlled electrical conductivity for superior ESD (electro-static discharge) performance, higher operating temperature, superior dimensional stability and better aesthetics for manufacturers in multiple industries.
“TEGO polymers are manufactured using proprietary technology to enhance the dispersion of the carbon nanotubes in the polymer,” said Shawn Cheesman, General Manager for Entegris. “As a result, stock shapes have very consistent ESD, excellent dimensional stability and improved toughness that can be used in many new high-performance products for the semiconductor, data storage, aerospace, and medical industries. Working with Quantum Polymers allows us to offer TEGO polymers in a broader range of options than ever before and we are excited to have TEGO polymer stock shapes available to a wider range of potential customers.” “We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Quantano family of carbon nanotube-based materials,” said Hemant Bheda, CEO of Quantum Polymers. Quantano will help us enhance further our value proposition objectives, in terms of offering value added high performance plastic products for a wide range of exciting applications.”
Boeing has delivered the first of ten 787 Dreamliners to WestJet, marking the start of the airline's global expansion. Having long operated a fleet of Boeing single-aisle jets, WestJet will use the super-efficient, long-range 787-9 Dreamliner to profitably serve new international routes.
