Carbon Nanotube Additives for Polyurethanes from Zyvex - New Product

Zyvex Corporation today introduced the first two products in its NanoSolve™ line of composite additives at the Polyurethane Manufacturers Association Annual Meeting and Supplier Showcase in Atlanta, Georgia today. One product is based on single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), the other is based on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). Both products are specially designed for dispersion in polyurethanes. The additives also attach well to the polyurethane matrix, boosting the host material’s thermal transport and mechanical properties.

“We are now offering additives that can create composite materials which exploit the intrinsic properties of carbon nanotubes,” said Zyvex President, Thomas A. Cellucci, PhD, MBA. “We believe that these products are another example of how quickly Zyvex can move nanotechnology out of the lab and into the commercial world.”

An important aspect of these two products is the product development and manufacturing flexibility that they provide. Both products provide demonstrable increases in thermal conductivity and mechanical strength, at various loadings.

“This gives the composite manufacturer a range of formulation options to choose from that meet specific material design and price parameters,” said Robert Folaron, Director of Product Development at Zyvex. “Because of our recent work building a reliable, quality supply chain, Zyvex is ready to offer these additives as true industrial materials.”
