Ahwahnee Technology Launches Carbon Nanotube Innovation Kit(TM)

Oct 05, 2005, 01:00 ET from Ahwahnee Technology, Inc.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Ahwahnee Technology announced
 today availability of an industry first, the Carbon Nanotube Innovation
     The I-Kit(TM) solves the two most pressing needs for carbon nanotube (CNT)
 users:  quality material and know-how.  Until recently, potential users have
 perceived CNTs as a laboratory curiosity because of their novelty, exotic
 properties, scarcity, high cost, and usage difficulties.  Merely acquiring CNT
 raw material often fails to help those trying to work with CNTs, because
 successful projects also require CNT know-how. The I-Kit delivers both high-
 quality CNT materials and know-how in one development toolbox.
     The I-Kit contains four containers of CNT material.  There are two pairs
 of containers: one pair includes Bundled Multi-Walled CNTs, and the other
 Un-Bundled. All have an industry-leading, as grown, structural purity
 exceeding 90%. The pairs are further differentiated on the basis of chemical
 purity, one container of each pair featuring 99% chemically-pure CNTs.  These
 four options allow experimenters to determine the optimum choice of CNT
 material for a specific application.  Sufficient quantities of material are
 provided -- 20 grams of each type -- to conduct comprehensive evaluation and
 development projects.
     The I-Kit also contains industry-standard CNT reference books, state of
 the art documents, and powerful software tools that dramatically speed up
 successful product commercialization. A "How To" series covers recommended
 safety practices, key techniques such as dispersion, and application
 evaluation criteria.
     First-time CNT users and experienced technologists alike will find the I-
 Kit to be an invaluable resource. CNT knowledge and innovation are maximized;
 costs, time, and effort are minimized. With the I-Kit, users can confidently
 become productive CNT innovators.  The I-Kit is priced at $4,995; academic
 discounts are available.
