Applied Nanotech to Showcase New Nanomaterials at nanoTX USA'08
(Nanowerk News) Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB:APNT.OB) announced that its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. ("ANI"), will showcase several new advanced nanotechnology products at nanoTX USA'08 to be held October 2-3 in Dallas, Texas at the Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel. ANI will display two products that it now has available for sale: metallic nanoparticles including copper, silver, nickel, aluminum, zinc, iron and cobalt; and a unique heat sink material known as CarbAl™ composite.
"This availability of commercial volumes of consistent high quality nanoparticles is the result of our metallic ink development project that we undertook with our strategic partner (see press release of October 1, 2007). We are pleased to make available the results of this development work and to enable greater access to the unique and beneficial characteristics these nanomaterials provide, which will ultimately contribute to the advancement of the nanotechnology industry," said Tom Bijou, Chairman and CEO of Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc.
Detailed information regarding the metallic nanoparticles can be found on ANI's website http://www.appliednanotech.net/ANI/nanoparticles.
Dr. Zvi Yaniv, ANI President and CEO, noted, "nanoTX USA provides an opportunity for us to present our revolutionary high thermal diffusive materials that may provide solutions to the needs of the microelectronic industry for low cost high quality heat sink material. This new material is lighter than traditional metallic heat sinks while being three times more effective at diffusing heat."
The new CarbAl™ heat sink material is a nanocomposite of a carbonaceous type of material and aluminum. The aluminum content is only 20%, while the thermal transmission of the new material is approaching 500 W/mK (for comparison aluminum thermal conductivity is 203 and copper is 390). A technical summary of the CarbAl material can be found at: http://www.appliednanotech.net/TechnologyPlatforms/materials/CarbAl.asp.
In addition to these newly available products, ANI will also exhibit innovations from its extensive patent portfolio, including inkjettable conductive copper ink, epoxy nanocomposites, sensors, CNT electron emission based devices such as sensors and neutron generators, etc.
