Reinste Nano Ventures has introduced finest industrial and research grade multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and singlewall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with purity of over 99%.
Reinste now becomes the authorized carbon nanotube distributor in India. It also supplies functionalized MWCNTs that can be used for numerous industrial applications, including thermal materials, thermal conductivity, structural composites, molecular electronics, metal molding, investment casting, field emission applications, fibers and fabrics, energy storage, conductive plastics, conductive adhesives, ceramic applications, catalyst supports, biomedical applications and water and air filtration.
Reinste’s carbon nanotubes demonstrate performance properties including ultra-high tensile strength, high electrical conductivity, high thermal conductivity, minimum thermal expansion co-efficient, good electron field emission, high flexibility, high aspect ratio and high elasticity of nearly 18% elongation to failure.
The Director at Reinste Nano Ventures, Puneet Mehrotra stated that the global carbon nanotube market increased at a 28% growth rate to $1,604 million in 2010 from $1,243 million in 2009, while the Indian carbon nanotube market is in the early stages in terms of the carbon nanotube usage in industrial applications. However, the introduction of finest grade carbon nanotubes will enable usage in diverse applications, he added.
Reinste also offers highly pure, finest grade nanomaterials and related products including phosphonic acid derivatives, tectomers, PEG derivatives, quantum dots, fullerenes, non oxide/oxide nano ceramics, nano metals, nano wires and nanodiamonds.
