a leading global manufacturer of specialty and industrial carbon nanotubes,
announced today it will showcase the performance and cost-competitive benefits
of its CNTs for cutting-edge conductive plastic applications at Nano Korea 2009,
from August 26-28, in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do, Korea. Nanocyl will be located at
KINTEX in booth H31.
Nanocyl's NC 7000 multiwall carbon nanotubes will be a featured product line.
This series of carbon nanotubes is one of the most electrically conductive CNTs
"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.
"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 also help automakers design, produce
and recycle lighter-weight parts that conduct electricity, save gas, and reduce
"CNTs are now being integrated into automotive fuel lines," said
Mongiovi. "They help prevent the decay that can happen in fuel lines and
"The demand for carbon nanotube technology is growing rapidly for new
conductive plastic applications," added Monique Lempereur, Nanocyl's global
commercial executive director. "Hard disk drives for televisions and automotive
navigation systems are among the new leading applications driving this demand."
"South Korean customers know the value of integrating conductive carbon
nanotubes into electronic applications," she said. "CNTs are cost-competitive,
and can offer better overall performance compared to carbon black and carbon
"We are supporting their growth by opening a subsidiary in Seoul,"
Lempereur stated. "As our customers continue developing new applications,
our new office will be helping them with local sales and customer service."
