Texas, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyvex Corporation today
announced that it has expanded its NanoSolve(TM) product
line with nine new product offerings.
The new epoxy concentrates blend several industry-standard
epoxies with multi-wall or single wall nanotubes,
or carbon nanofibers, to deliver significant increases
in electrical and thermal conductivity, as well as
improved mechanical strength.
"Our new line of epoxy concentrates can create
composite materials which exploit the intrinsic properties
of carbon nanotubes," said Zyvex President, Thomas
A. Cellucci, PhD, MBA. "By offering a range of
concentrations, we can provide customers with more
flexibility to choose the amount of CNTs they want
in their final product."
Zyvex's patented Kentera(TM) technology (a non-covalent
modification of carbon nanomaterials) exfoliates,
disperses, and adheres to the host material when it
is combined with carbon nanomaterials. This creates
a NanoSolve additive or concentrate -- successfully
incorporating the electrical, thermal, and mechanical
properties into the host polymer.
"Our new NanoSolve epoxy concentrates give composite
manufacturers 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. "By leveraging
our reliable quality supply chain, Zyvex is ready
to offer these industrial materials in production
The NanoSolve concentrates utilize industry-standard
epoxies as a host material for enhanced polymer concentrates.
This provides a range of formulation options that
meet specific material design and price parameters.
