RICHARDSON, Texas, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyvex Corporation today
announced that it has expanded its NanoSolve(TM) product line with nine new
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 quantities."
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.
