Fulcrum Debuts SP1/Carbon Nanotube Reinforcement Solution for PAN/Phenolic Composites

Fulcrum SP Materials Ltd, a world leader in innovative nano-technology for enhanced composite materials, today introduced its SP1/CNT reinforcement solution for PAN/phenolic composites. Fulcrum has demonstrated that flat-wise tensile strength more than doubles, and inter-laminar shear strength increases significantly, while preserving overall composite strength. These improvements were achieved using small amounts of Fulcrum's proprietary SP1/CNT complex (0.2%-0.3% by weight of the PAN fabric).

This breakthrough technology in phenolic resins creates opportunities for customers to implement superior nano-reinforced phenolic-based composites and to introduce PAN/Phenolic-based composites for multiple new uses and applications, such as thermal aerospace applications.

"Our customers can now introduce PAN/phenolic composites to demanding aerospace applications and by using Fulcrum's proprietary SP1/CNT technology, can achieve greater performance of their composite parts at an affordable cost. This segment of our business is growing constantly and we will be expanding our offering of such solutions in the near future", said Nimrod Litvak, Fulcrum's CEO.

Fulcrum will be presenting at the JEC Europe 2014 during 11-13 March, at booth Q77 in Pavilion 7.2.
