TUBALL: Revolutionary Carbon Nanotubes for the Tyre Industry

Even stronger than a radial tyre? There is every indication that TUBALL carbon nanotubes will revolutionise tyre chemistry even more than silica did in the 1990s and be even more significant than the invention of radial tyres after WWII. Even the tiniest amount of these small tubes, which have a diameter of just 1 nm (one-billionth of a metre) and a wall thickness of one (!) carbon atom, improve tyre characteristics to a mind-blowing extent. The history of the invention is equally remarkable; moreover, it comes from the heart of Siberia.

TUBALL carbon nanotubes: colourful, conductive and reinforced plastics

At the Plastivision India exhibition in Mumbai, OCSiAl introduced the capability of the TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotube conductive additive to reshape the plastics industry. On 19 January in the Banquet Hall at the NESCO Grounds, OCSiAl’s Managing Director, Mr Ravi Mohan Dabral, gave a presentation about “Making plastics permanently conductive”.

Carbon nanotubes – a game changer in reinforcing composites

A recent study by the Institute of Polymers and Composites at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) has compared neat and TUBALL single wall carbon nanotube modified unidirectional CFRP prepreg. At ultra-low concentrations of 0.01 and 0.05 wt.%, nanotubes significantly improve fracture properties and fatigue behavior.

Best Crete rolls out a brand new product for the Malaysian market – epoxy conductive flooring with TUBALL single wall carbon nanotubes

Best Crete, an experienced manufacturer of polymer floor coating systems for industrial and commercial applications, has confirmed its leading position in the Malaysian market by developing an advanced solution and kicking off commercial production of epoxy conductive flooring based on TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotubes. Due to the unique characteristics of single wall carbon nanotubes, they impart uniform and permanent electrical conductivity to epoxy flooring starting from loadings as low as 0.01%. Additional advantages include surface smoothness, the option of bright colours, and easy handling.

Single wall carbon nanotubes blaze a trail in reinforcing composites

The advanced conductive additive TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotubes, produced by the worldwide company OCSiAl, has attracted great interest from manufacturers in the achievement-oriented composite industry at the International Conference & Exhibition on Reinforced Plastics (ICERP) in Mumbai, India. This cutting-edge product is not only a conductive additive that doesn’t compromise materials’ colour or formulation, it also reinforces the composite’s matrix.
