The new facility in Serbia is planned to have a 40 MT/y capacity. The synthesis plant is intended to contribute to lowering supply chain costs and to make it possible to deliver European-produced nanotubes and nanotube industrial solutions to customers in Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Production lines

As the company further points out, the nanotube synthesis facility will be accompanied by the production lines of more than 40 nanotube-based concentrates and dispersions designed to simplify industrial handling of nanotubes and will be launched in sequence in 2022-2023. These products are used in aerospace, automotive, construction, electronics, packaging and consumer goods.

The Serbian facility will be complemented by a larger nanotube manufacturing facility in Differdange, Luxembourg, in 2025.

Water-borne Protective Coatings


EC Tech Report Water-borne Protective Coatings

Despite the times of crisis that we live in, the world market for corrosion protection coatings is still growing and water-borne corrosion protection coatings are rapidly evolving. This EC Tech Report presents the most important innovations that have taken place in water-borne corrosion protection coatings over the last two years. Learn more about how corrosion protection is improved with the aid of nanostructured and phosphatised water-borne binders, find out how compliance with stricter regulations can be combined with improved concrete sealing by using latex binders that have a low VOC content and gain insights into a into a new class of liquid, modified polyamides that are used as a rheology additive to enable water-borne coating systems to adjust the flow behaviour of solvent-borne systems. In addition to these and further articles about the latest technical developments, the Tech Report is rounded off with valuable market insights and important fundamentals about water-borne protective coatings.
