Conductivity and Reinforcement: Reinventing Composites with TUBALL™ Graphene Nanotubes
OCSiAl – a high-tech company with a unique, patented technology for mass producing graphene nanotubes – introduces improved efficiency and performance, permanent conductivity and industrial colors for composite materials at booth #Y-42 at CAMX on October 16–18 in Dallas.
Conductive and durable conveyors belts, anti-static and enhanced urethane and silicone industrial rollers, reinforced composite rebar, fiberglass storage tanks with homogeneous anti-static properties, industrial PU shoes and cleaning pigs with improved diagnostic accuracy – it’s only a part of a solid track record performed by manufacturers advancing their competitiveness with TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes.
At CAMX in Dallas, OCSiAl displays its off-the-shelf innovative technology, TUBALL™ MATRIX, which is a line of super-concentrates specially developed for simplifying nanotube handling. A loading of just 0.1% of this concentrate is sufficient to provide materials with resistivity in the range of 108–102 Ω·cm, while reinforcing the structure and maintaining the original color. The line of concentrates is developed for application in most common industrial formulations.
The company is a finalist for the CAMX Awards, given during the event, for their line of super-concentrates. On Wednesday, October 17 at 11 a.m. during CAMX, OCSiAl will present “Lighter, Stronger, Better: Composites and Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes.” The presentation will be available to conference attendees.
OCSiAl was the first, and currently remains the only company, to be authorized to undertake large-volume commercial shipments and marketing of single wall carbon nanotubes in Europe, North America and other key markets. TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes are the first single wall carbon nanotubes to be registered in accordance with the EU’s REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulations: in September 2016, TUBALL™ nanotubes were registered under the number 01-2120130006-75-0000. OCSiAl has also submitted its PMN file to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and has received PMN submission number P-17-0257.
