Nanocyl in the magazine Compounding World April 2016- Electrically conductive plastics

Extract: "Over the past few years the Nanocyl’s NC7000 product has penetrated large volume markets in thermoplastic commodities segments including automotive, electronic pacakging, and energy. Nanocyl’s MWCNT materials are typically replacing conventional carbon blacks. One reason for their adoption is that MWCNTs can add conductivity to plastics compounds at very low loadings. Moreover, MWCNTs allow new multifunctional materials to emerge. Industrial fan blades for cooling towers in ATEX environment have been produced by Nanocyl and VAMPTECH (Italian compounder specialized in flame retardant compounds) based on a PA6/MWCNTs formulation providing multifunctional properties. These blades are dissipative (108 Ω/sq) and meet UL94 V0 flammability...

Halogen-free flame retardant products thanks to NC7000™

The project DEROCA has demonstrated that industrial multiwall carbon nanotubes NC7000™ are an effective synergist with other common flame retardants additives to produce flame retardant halogen-free multifunctional products. Discover the summary of the main achievements of the project DEROCA so far inside the magazine International Innovation. The project DEROCA which stands for "Development of safe and eco-friendly materials based on CNT-coadditives for commodity polymers" is a collaborative project coordinated by Nanocyl SA and supported by DG RTD of the European Commission. Halogenated flame retardant additives are commonly used because of their low impact in other material properties and the low...
