RICHARDSON, Texas, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyvex Corporation today
introduced the first two products in its NanoSolve(TM) line of composite
additives at the Polyurethane Manufacturers Association Annual Meeting and
Supplier Showcase in Atlanta, Georgia. One product is based on single walled
carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), the other is based on multiwalled carbon nanotubes
(MWNTs). Both products are specially designed for dispersion in
polyurethanes. The additives also attach well to the polyurethane matrix,
boosting the host material's thermal transport and mechanical properties.
"We are now offering additives that can create composite materials which
exploit the intrinsic properties of carbon nanotubes," said Zyvex President,
Thomas A. Cellucci, PhD, MBA. "We believe that these products are another
example of how quickly Zyvex can move nanotechnology out of the lab and into
the commercial world."
An important aspect of these two products is the product development and
manufacturing flexibility that they provide. Both products provide
demonstrable increases in thermal conductivity and mechanical strength, at
"This gives the composite manufacturer 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. "Because of our
recent work building a reliable, quality supply chain, Zyvex is ready to offer
these additives as true industrial materials."
