Background

Carbon nanotubes are known for exhibiting unique mechanical, electrical and thermal properties, useful for a wide range of applications in materials. In the semicon industry, carbon nanotube-based products procure very promising additives.

Applications and Nanocyl Solutions

The electrically conductive fibrous structures of carbon nanotubes finely dispersed in materials, increase the number of electrical contacts and ensure a smoother flow of electrons. Therefore, a lower content of additive is needed for a given resistivity, this in comparison with other carbon fillers or metals, when designing antistatic plastic materials for uses in clean room environment, hereby decreasing the probability of contaminating microchips and other sensitive components.

Smaller Components, Cleaner Materials

In this framework, Nanocyl carbon nanotubes have a clear competitive advantage since the trends in electronics towards smaller and smaller components will only be possible with cleaner materials.

Low Contaminant Risk

Thanks to plastic compounds made with Nanocyl carbon nanotubes, there is a lower risk of contaminating delicate electronics during processing and handling because of different characteristics.

Antistatic Properties

Carbon nanotubes have antistatic properties in PEEK, PPS, PC and other polymers at a low level of addition and a precise control of electrical conductivity and therefore volume and surface resistance due to superior dispersion.

Characteristics of Carbon Nanotubes

Furthermore, carbon nanotubes contain a high purity with no residual sizings (like carbon fibres) or sulphur outgassing (like carbon blacks). Another important characteristic of carbon nanotubes that insures the lower risk of contaminating delicate electronics is that there is no sloughing in abrasion testing.
