CNT fiber progress

Postby DeltaV » Sun Jan 13, 2013 7:54 pm

New nanotube fibers have unmatched combination of strength, conductivity, flexibility
"The new CNT fibers have a thermal conductivity approaching that of the best graphite fibers but with 10 times greater electrical conductivity," said study co-author Marcin Otto, business development manager at Teijin Aramid. "Graphite fibers are also brittle, while the new CNT fibers are as flexible and tough as a textile thread. We expect this combination of properties will lead to new products with unique capabilities for the aerospace, automotive, medical and smart-clothing markets."
