FutureCarbon to Present Innovative Products at nano tech 2010
(Nanowerk News) FutureCarbon will attend nano tech 2010, the international fair for nanotechnology, which will take place from February 17 through February 19 in Tokyo, Japan. FutureCarbon is presenting its innovative products CarboGran, an easily soluble CNT granulate, and its electrically heated coating Carbo e-Therm.
The focus lies on the product innovation CarboGran, a breakthrough for the industrial use of carbon nanomaterials. CarboGran is a dust free, dry granulate consisting of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), that can easily and safely be dispersed in a whole number of different solvents and polymers. CarboGran minimises the effort involved to date for further processing carbon nanomaterials by eliminating entirely the elaborate and technically demanding dispersion process on the part of the user.
Another product highlight presented by the innovative Bayreuth based company is Carbo e-Therm, a high-efficiency electrically heated coating for the use with non-hazardous low voltage. The coating can easily be applied to surfaces of any shape and electrically contacted. Surfaces with Carbo e-Therm heat up homogeneously without the forming of hot spots. Flexible use and high heating power allow for a variety of different applications, such as panel heating for the automotive industry or as floor or wall heating.
Other exhibits at the fair include CarboDis, a very successful range of CNT dispersions, and the electrically conductive epoxy resins of the CarboBond series.
FutureCarbon is presenting its new products in hall 6, booth F17.
