Example: NanoQuan’s Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Dispersion Solution
CNTs – single-wall (SWNT) or multi-wall (MWNT) – when added to a wide range of carrier materials, including thermosets, thermoplastics and liquid systems, offer the promise of enhanced electrical conductivity, tensile strength, thermal conductivity and other properties.
However, fundamental issues currently prevent mass production of optimal CNT products:
- Poor dispersion and uneven distribution
- Difficulty in handling and processing due to high viscosity
- Inadequate properties and performance
- Inadequate CNT stability and shelf-life in the carrier material
The NanoQuan Solution: Superior Dispersion-Mixing
These limitations are overcome by NanoQuan’s unique, patented dispersion-mixing technology.
Example: SEM Images of CNTs at 30,000x:
Left: massively entangled commercial CNT* aggregates.
Right: the same material dispersed by NanoQuan’s advanced technology down to single-structure levels with extremely uniform distribution.
CNT Type: general purpose, industrial grade, high-aspect-ratio MWNTs, > 50 um length
CNT Surface Chemistry: unfunctionalized
Carrier Material: water
* Off-the-shelf bath sonicated CNTs
