Monterrey International Forum in Mexico is part of the Nanotechnology Cluster
of Nuevo León, and hosts exclusive group of business people, industry
specialists, and subject experts from the advanced materials and nanotechnology
industries. Leading representatives from the scientific and business
communities presented advances and disruptive innovations in metallic and
polymeric composites, energy storage, renewable energy, advanced coatings,
nanostructures, and applications in paper and plastic.
Aronov, CEO of OCSiAl USA, presented a talk at the Nano Monterrey International
Forum 2016 on the benefits of OCSiAl’s core product, TUBALL, and its wide variety
of industrial applications. TUBALL is the only technology in the world for
industrial-scale synthesis of single wall carbon nanotubes.
presentation, titled “Nano-augmented materials for the industry”
Dmitri introduced TUBALL to leading
representatives of the Latin American industrial sector. TUBALL contains at
least 80% of high-quality single wall carbon nanotubes. The incorporation of these
nanotubes into a material matrix results in the creation of a strong,
conductive, 3D network that endows the material with improved mechanical
properties and increased electrical conductivity.
even more valuable for applied science is that OCSiAl has been successful in
transforming scientific breakthroughs into effective industrial applications by
developing nanotube-based concentrates. These easy-to-use products greatly simplify
the process of nanotube addition to a material matrix. For manufacturers, this makes
the implementation of cutting-edge technologies immediately cost-effective,” Dmitri
OCSiAl is constantly
exploring new directions for the application of nanotubes, and has already developed
solutions for many industrial sectors, such as elastomers, thermosets,
thermoplastics, electrochemical power sources, and transparent electrodes.
presentation left a lasting impression on the attendees of the Forum, including
scientific and research representatives as well as manufacturers and market
stakeholders who are deeply interested in the latest trends on the market.
participation in the Nano Monterrey International Forum is a step toward the
development of a market presence in Latin America and the creation of networks
with exclusive business communities and industry specialists in the advanced
materials sector there.
we have noted the increased interest in TUBALL from research institutes in this
region. Some of them are already testing our product. This Forum, and the essential
contacts with industry stakeholders that it has brought us, will support
OCSiAl’s intention to play a more active role in the Latin American market,”
