Nanocyl announced today
it is now offering a large packaging for its NC 7000 multiwall carbon nanotubes
that will help its customers reduce shipping costs, and safely optimize the
"Switching to the 1000 l 'Big Bag', loaded with 65 kg of NC7000, reduces
the logistics and expenses associated with shipping multiple 2 kg boxes, resulting
in a savings of up to 70% in shipping costs," said Marc Mostade, Nanocyl's
The "Big Bag" is made of two layers, one of technical textiles, and
one of HDPE. The 'Big Bag' is also equipped with a special discharge, and is
packed inside a cardboard box for safe shipping.
"Customers can eliminate multiple loadings in the feeder because the product
is in an easy-to-handle single container," he said. "Now they have
one loading of CNTs which optimizes the process and quality of the final compound."
"Also, when handled according to the recommended procedures using the
recommended loading valve (see www.nanocyl.com ), 'Big Bags' are safe to use
in industrial compounding facilities," Mostade added.
Nanocyl's NC 7000 CNTs are one of the most electrically conductive series of
carbon nanotubes available today. Produced with an exclusive catalyst, they
are in great demand worldwide because their small size and high aspect ratio
lets them form a network of conductivity at a very low concentration.
Nanocyl S.A., established in 2002, is a leading global manufacturer of specialty
and industrial carbon nanotubes. Nanocyl is headquartered in Belgium, and has
a division in the U.S. The Asia-Pacific market is covered through a network
of partners in South Korea, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and China.
Nanocyl's products fully meet the requirements of clients active in producing
synthetic materials and manufacturing equipment for the automotive and electronic
industries. As a worldwide leader in the production of carbon nanotubes, Nanocyl
is focused on providing complete and value-added solutions to its customers.
Nanocyl will invest in additional capacities in 2010 to respond to the increasing
demand for carbon nanotube technologies.
