SouthWest NanoTechnologies Showcases Breakthrough CNT Ink Technology at MRS

Published on November 13, 2009 at 4:25 PM

SouthWest NanoTechnologies Inc., a privately-held specialty chemical company that manufactures high quality single-wall and specialty multiwall carbon nanotubes for a range of products, will be exhibiting at the 2009 Materials Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting + Exhibit November 30 - December 4 (exhibit is just Dec. 1-3) -- Booth 802 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

The annual meeting serves as a key forum for the exchange of information across disciplines - with almost 6,000 papers in 50 topical symposia. In addition to the technical meeting, a large-scale exhibition will feature over 220 international exhibitors from all sectors of the global materials science and engineering industries.

SouthWest NanoTechnologies Inc. (SWeNT) is a leading developer and manufacturer of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) and Specialty Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes. Their new manufacturing facility, opened last year, increased SWCNT production capacity 100-fold at one-tenth the unit cost. Employing the low-cost CoMoCAT® process, high quality and the ability to tailor product properties is assured.

At this year’s exhibit, SWeNT will feature breakthrough CNT Ink technology, which allows low cost printing of conducting and semiconducting features on a roll-to-roll basis.

Single and Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes consist of hollow cylinders of carbon with a diameter equal to approximately one nanometer - a billionth of a meter. Carbon nanotubes possess extraordinary optical and electronic properties, tremendous strength and flexibility, and high thermal and chemical stability. Today, carbon nanotubes are used in a wide range of applications in the automotive, aeronautics, electronics, displays, energy and healthcare markets.
