Nanocyl announced today
it will showcase its new PLASTICYL PEEK 1001 thermoplastic concentrate, and
its range of carbon nanotube technologies for composites at Nano Tech 2010,
from February 17-19, in Tokyo, Japan. Nanocyl will be located at booth B-28.
"Carbon nanotubes can help OEMs meet their driving need today–designing
and producing new applications that perform brilliantly, save energy, and cost
less," stated Roberto Mongiovi, Nanocyl’s Sales and Marketing Manager-Electrical
PLASTICYL PEEK 1001, a ready-to-ship CNT, is developed for high-end electronics
applications. Other high-temperature polymers, such as PEI and PES, are also
available on demand.
"Conductive plastic applications require a greater level of electrical
conductivity, ESD protection and cleanliness," Mongiovi said. "Our
new PLASTICYL PEEK 1001 master-batch is clean, cost-competitive, and eliminates
the waste and inefficiencies of carbon black and carbon fibers."
PLASTICYL offers OEMs key advantages when used in advanced PEEK compounds,
according to Michael Claes, Technical Service Associate Director.
"PLASTICYL PEEK 1001 integrates carbon nanotubes uniformly in thermoplastic
compounds," he said. "You can produce more durable products that have
greater resistance to chemicals, abrasion and heat."
"These properties can help OEMs design and produce lighter-weight, non-metallic
parts that are recyclable, and perform better throughout the supply chain,"
he added. "In doing so, you can reduce emissions, energy usage, and total
EPOCYL, SIZCYL and PREGCYL are Nanocyl’s high-performance epoxy resins,
sizing agents and pre-preg materials designed for improving the durability,
reliability and conductivity of composite materials used in demanding automotive,
sports, marine and aerospace applications.
"By improving the mechanical and ESD/electrical properties in composite
materials, Nanocyl’s CNTs help finished products have sustained performance,
longer life spans, and lower maintenance and replacement costs," Claes
