Carbon Nanotubes: high performing features in one-billionth of a meter length
Prysmian and Nanocomp have also agreed to evaluate, at a later stage of the project, whether to commence large-scale production of products and technologies developed as part of this research. The interest of the two companies is driven by the high potential offered by Nanocomp’s Miralon®carbon nanotubes. CNT are small hollow tubes comprised entirely of carbon with diameters of 0.7 to 50 nanometers and lengths generally in the 10s of microns. At the individual tube level, these unique structures combine several extremely interesting intrinsic characteristics in terms of mechanical resistance, low weight, chemical inertness, very high degree of flexibility, and electrical and heat conductivity.
Miralon® is a Nanocomp Techonolgy carbon nanotube-based advanced material that enables strong, light weight and environmentally resistant solutions, solving customers’ problems, even in the harshest conditions, providing strength, ductility, electrical conductivity and thermal transport across several material formats.
