BOISE, Idaho, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Idaho Space Materials, Inc. has
developed a revolutionary nanotube manufacturing process which produces
uncontaminated, high purity single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) at a
very high production rate. While the high production rates achieved are a
significant advancement, generating the material without harmful metal
contaminants allows these nanotubes to be easily incorporated into the ever
increasing applications for which this extraordinary material is used.
Most SWCNT manufacturing methods use a metal catalyst to form the
nanotubes. ISM's process uses a consistent, dependable, high-yield,
high-volume, safe method to create SWCNTs without the use of any metal
catalysts. Metal contamination is problematic for many commercial
applications due to either toxic effects or the harmful impact of the
catalyst on the exceptional nanotube characteristics. Metal contamination
removal is a costly and time-consuming process that is unnecessary with
ISM's process is infinitely scalable to meet any consumer demand.
Customers interested in obtaining SWCNTs from Idaho Space Materials should

available for high-volume customers as well as educational and
not-for-profit research institutions. ISM is committed to supporting
researchers in their efforts to bring concepts to practical application in
Idaho Space Materials, Inc. is located in Boise, Idaho and was founded
in December 2005 with the purpose of manufacturing advanced materials. The
company works to identify and commercialize existing patents in advanced
materials, reducing overall time to market and cost of commercialization.
ISM started its nanotube venture by licensing a laboratory-scale
manufacturing process from the National Aeronautics and Science
Administration (NASA). Through subsequent research and development, it has
created a process that is commercially viable. With the introduction of its
first product, NOMEC 1556 - Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes, ISM has proven
that it can rapidly move from licensing to product introduction.
Carbon nanotubes have drawn significant attention from the scientific
community since their discovery in 1991 due to their very high tensile
strength, excellent electrical conductivity, light weight, and outstanding
thermal properties. Products enhanced by carbon nanotubes are reaching the
consumer market in a wide variety of applications. Researchers in fields
ranging from medicine, microelectronics, and advanced materials are
discovering new uses for carbon nanotubes on a daily basis and are finding
that they can dramatically improve our quality of life with this amazing
