Nanocyl announced today
it will highlight the advantages of using CNTs for innovative HDD storage applications
at DISKCON USA 2009, Sept. 23-24, in Santa Clara, CA. Nanocyl will be located
in booth 307 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
"As the HDD industry develops ever-denser discs, integrated components
are becoming more vulnerable to chemical contamination and electrostatic discharge,"
stated Roberto Mongiovi, business development manager of Nanocyl.
"Carbon nanotube technology can help the OEMs overcome these challenges,
especially with the new HDDs being developed for televisions and car navigation
systems" Mongiovi said. "CNTs offer a much cleaner alternative to
carbon black or carbon fiber, and have an intrinsic molecular structure that
conducts electricity and controls ESD."
Nanocyl will feature its NC7000 carbon nanotubes at the trade show. Nanocyl's
CNTs provide a high level of cleanliness and abrasion resistance, less outgassing
and sloughing, and retention of key mechanical properties for conductive plastic
applications, including HGA trays, suspension trays, and other sensitive HDD
"NC7000's cost-competitive performance properties can help maintain a
product's integrity throughout the manufacturing and supply chain processes,"
"This can help OEMs increase their manufacturing yield, and ultimately,
customer satisfaction," he explained.
"We also offer a strong global network, especially in Asia, to address
the short lead times requested by the HDD industry," he said.
