The challenge: Industrial usage of Carbon Nanotubes
During the production process of Carbon Nanotubes the material gets entangled and the cylindrical tubes create agglomerates. However, agglomerates prevent the transfer of the extraordinary properties of Carbon Nanotubes to the application. Therefore an additional step is necessary to form a homogeneous mixture of highly dispersed and stabilized tubes.
LANXESS fills this gap!
With “formulated product engineering” of tailored dispersions of Carbon Nanotubes.
To fulfill the requirements of your end user a specific level of dispersion is needed. Our technique allows the fabrication of aqueous CNT-dispersions with different quality levels. We proofed this context by investigating the performance in NBR/CNT-composite exemplary with different energy levels (level of dispersion). Due to the international manufacturing units of Rhein Chemie we offer worldwide customer oriented solutions for providing the industrial usage of CNTs.
