An ultra-strong carbon-nanotube reinforced adhesive is now available for structural applications.
An independent laboratory in North America tested the two-part carbon nanotube reinforced epoxy adhesive. The result is that the adhesion tear strength of "CNTstix” is 60 % higher than that of a adhesive manufactured by an industry competitor.
Using its proprietary functionalisation and dispersion technologies, the properties of adhesives using carbon nanotubes were improved, in particular for bonding materials to each other.

Wide range of applications

There is a high amount of applications possible, such as packaging, sporting goods, automotive, electronics, footwear, construction repair and remodeling, textiles, consumer goods, and shipbuilding, etc.
The adhesive is availabe in a variety of quantities, starting at one ounce. Its special burst pouch packaging ensures a 100 percent accurate proper mixing of the CNT reinforced epoxy and compatible hardener.
"Carbon nanotubes possess unique mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. They are the strongest material known in the world to date.” Says Dr. Dongsheng Mao, Vice President of Engineering and Director of the Nanocomposite Division at Applied Nanotech Inc., US.
